The Laboratory School of Finance and Technology

Overview written by the school: Our school sets a high academic bar that challenges students to expand their personal and academic visions of themselves. Through partnerships with outside organizations students learn by connecting with professionals. Students pick an academic focus in either finance, technology, or language studies. We have a one-to-one Chromebook program, enabling all students to access technology in the classroom and at home. As a Consortium school, all courses place emphasis on research and writing, culminating in Performance Based Assessment Tasks. In addition, through a partnership with Blue Engine, all students receive individualized support in their 9th and 10th grade English and Math courses.
