Who is the typical Lang School student?

Intellectual or creative engagement is key to student success at Lang. Often, our students are not inspired to challenge themselves in more traditional school settings. Before they arrive at our doors, these high potential learners might say school is boring; their teachers might label them "lazy" or underachievers; or these students might even refuse to go to school altogether. The typical Lang School student is able to capitalize on our individualized interventions and supports, classrooms of affinity and ability peers, and radically differentiated group instruction.

Who is the typical Lang School parent?

The typical Lang School parent is collaboratorative and prepared to support their child in a wide variety of ways with the recognition that school is not a solution to every challenge. Some of our students need targeted outside supports in order to reinforce the school's work and to generalize emerging skills across settings. Our parents are eager to engage with the school in a team-oriented process of identifying and meeting their child's needs holistically. We offer parent workshops throughout the school year, and our Parent Association is an active support network for the school and, most of all, for the parent community itself.

How do I apply to Lang for my child?

The following guidelines should be considered when submitting an application:

Our students' Verbal Comprehension or Perceptual Reasoning indices on intelligence tests are generally at least in the superior range, though subtest scores may show discrepancies between strengths and relative deficits.

Student applicants who will need supports (2e) beyond those integrated into the classroom should submit a neuropsychological or psychoeducational evaluation no older than three years. Exceptions can be made for students currently undergoing such evaluations.

The Lang School isn't an appropriate setting for children who are physically/verbally aggressive or for children not yet prepared for the expectations of a classroom-based education.
