Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Mills College campus, our laboratory school offers:
— HIGHLY-QUALIFIED HEAD TEACHERS and dedicated student teachers
— SOCIAL EMOTIONAL PRACTICES supporting a sense of belonging and emotional safety for all children
— THEMATIC, PROJECT-BASED LEARNING that fosters a sense of autonomy and competency
— UNITS OF STUDY that integrate science, social studies, language arts, service learning, and design thinking. Visual arts, music and movement, and physical education round out our curriculum, all with a strong social-emotional component.
Student interest, teacher passion, and Common Core and Next Generation Science content standards form the guide to our creative curriculum mapping, with an imbedded social justice component focused on “changemakers” and the development of a sense of agency and an Antiracist stance.
