Khan Lab School (KLS) is a non-profit, mastery-based school founded by Salman Khan in 2014 to cultivate his student-centered philosophy in a physical school environment.
Khan is also the founder of Khan Academy and author of The One World Schoolhouse (2012), in which he makes the case for mastery-based, mixed-age, and blended learning with a departure from traditional letter grades. Today the KLS community is bringing that vision to life on its own campus and also sharing knowledge within education more broadly.
"We make time and space for every student to:
- Build a strong foundational knowledge
- Have voice & choice in their learning
- Develop their social and emotional intelligence
So they are prepared to navigate their own path in a collaborative world."
The academic experience is coordinated by a team of Advisors, Content Specialists, and Associate Teachers who foster a community of learners who love to learn.
