Welcome to the Lab School
The Bethlehem Central Lab School is a small, rigorous high school program carved out of the larger Bethlehem High School in which it is physically situated. Designed by members of the Bethlehem faculty, administration and community, the Lab School is committed to excellence through innovation and represents a bold educational thrust into the 21st century. Lab School students and faculty alike have been characterized as a community of risk-takers, pioneering active modes of learning that frequently involve students in independent research, formal presentations and interdisciplinary projects - all in a context of demanding coursework and Regents mandates.
Chartered in 1992 as a local response to calls from business, government and
educational institutions to experiment with new methods of teaching and
learning, the Lab School has been featured in the local press, as well as in
national professional journals.
