Come Visit our Beautiful School!

The best way to learn about our wonderful laboratory school is to attend a morning tour or weekend open house. Space is limited, so please register online for any of the events below.

Early Childhood Program Tours

For our Infant/Toddler, Preschool, and Transitional Kindergarten classrooms, all tours run from 9:00-10:30 am and are for adults only (babes in arms ok). You will learn about our Early Childhood curriculum, view classrooms in session, and participate in a Q&A with our staff.

K-5 Elementary School Program

Group tours of our K-5 Elementary School program are held from November-January each year and applications are due in January. After that, we will continue to accept applications all year round as space allows. Any subsequent openings will be filled from the list of remaining applicants on the basis of maintaining balanced and diverse classroom populations. Once our priority round of enrollment decisions go out in mid-March, we offer private tours of the Elementary School and subsequent enrollment decisions are generally made within a week of a student’s visit to the school.


If a tour is already full, it won’t show up as an option for registration. Please email if you’d like to be put on a waiting list for a particular date.
