A Home for Learning

Since 1931, Falk Lab School has provided a learning environment grounded in community, diversity, and progressive and experiential education. A Falk education emphasizes collaboration and active learning. As a laboratory school, we support research aimed at developing innovative new practices in education while also assisting in the preparation of student teachers.

In 2001, the faculty at Falk created a supporting document that captures the essence of Falk and places us in a more visionary context. “What do we wish for our children?”

A Warm, Diverse

Meaningful engagement between students and teachers is at the heart of a Falk education. More than 80 percent of Falk Lab School teachers possess an advanced degree, and each year the school hosts more than a dozen student teachers completing their training.
