University Laboratory School Reviews

My school is good at academics and they have been improving in the athletics program. This school is made for kids who don't need help with staying on track or need extra motivation. This schools' curriculum is very fast-paced and the teachers don't take extra time to help the students who struggle in their classes. The facilities at this school are mostly outdated (such as the bathrooms, locker rooms, etc.) but there were new AC units installed throughout the classrooms in the main buildings. The administration is old-fashioned and needs either new leadership or more diversity. Otherwise, the school is good.

Both of my children were fortunate to attend the University Lab School. They both embraced the school experience and graduated the top of their class. The academics were challenging and rigorous. The school embraces the "whole child." The administration is very supportive and approachable. Happy to say my children graduated from the University Laboratory School!
The Education Laboratory School encouraged its students to be problem solvers and to explore new challenges. We were required to take art and music every day for our education. We had shorter classes which kept our attention better, and more classes up to 8 a day which kept a consistent schedule. I think that this was the best school for me on the island. Education was highly valued because if you didn't pass it was summer school or expulsion. So it was a better environment for nerds like myself, which made it a very safe one too. My class was also uniquely close and all of us were friends. I think I had an excellent high school career.
