School Notes

  • The Lang School offers gifted and twice exceptional (2e) learners in grades K through 12 a STEM- and STEAM-driven education informed by the ethics, poetics, and universal questions of the humanities. Our specially trained gifted and special education teachers dually differentiate the content and delivery of our standards-based academics in small classes of no more than 12 students. Our pedagogy dovetails rigorous, accelerated academics and integrates research-based supports. As a result, we meet each student where they are in their trajectory of learning and are constantly pushing them through their "proximal zone of development" (PZD) across subjects. Equally core to our mission is that we exemplify for and teach students how to own their impact and empower them to speak up and stand up for equity and social justice. We pride ourselves on this innovative model to gifted education, and Lang is the first school of its kind in the world, embracing the full set of social-emotional and intellectual needs unique to gifted and 2e learners. Our capstone Talent Development Program nurtures a sense of purpose by identifying and deepening areas of interest and strength, transforming native promise into talent, and facilitating early specialization and the acquisition of professional-level skills and commitment.
