They provide a lot of different academic paths. The IB program, AP classes, and dual enrollment classes. Their athletics are also very good and provide many opportunities for athletes to participate in their sports and for the student body to get involved with it. On top of all that the arts program has been building rapidly over the last few years, offering many choir and band concerts, a musical engaging students K-12, and a talented band and dance team that perform at many athletic events. One thing they should improve on is their preparation. Coming back from breaks, both summer and Christmas break, there’s always some problems that should have been handled before all the students arrived.

The University Laboratory School is a fine school. It has challenging academics if one chooses to partake in them. However, the facilities could be better. The culture in the school is also quite poor. There is little participation in school events as the students get older.
The school has allowed me the change to make long-lasting friendships and the opportunity to gain a good education that has prepared me for college. They offer IB, AP, and DE classes. This prepares me for college and allows me chance to get college credits early.
