The Laboratory Schools are home to the youngest members of the University of Chicago's academic community. The Laboratory School ignites and nurtures an enduring spirit of scholarship, curiosity, creativity, and confidence.
Being part of the University of Chicago means that the importance of intellectual life—of thought and exploration—infuses everything we do across all aspects of our curriculum. Families who choose Lab care deeply about curiosity, inquiry, and creativity. All are attracted to a diverse community and an environment that creates and nurtures the habits of expansive thinking and complex problem-solving.
