To prepare for college and life, Bronx Lab School students engage in meaningful and contextual academic work, participate in a nurturing community, explore their passions, and learn to value effort as a means to success.
To achieve this mission, the school provides a rigorous, liberal arts, college preparatory experience. Students at Bronx Lab are taught by dedicated educators whose work ethic and philosophy represent the core values of the school community: an unwavering commitment to rigor and high academic standards; experiential and varied instruction; working to improve the community; democratic values; intense, project-based academic work; inquiry-based learning, differentiated lesson planning; and daily small-group advisories.
