    "i started lab this year in fourth grade and i feel like i've been there my whole life. i was very welcomed by the counselors and teachers and the kids in my class are friendly and fun to be around with. i love going to school and i always know i am going to have a good day. lab has so much to offer from sports to theater to after school programs. i wish i could rate this school much more than just five stars."

    "I would like to comment on the note below. I think Lab is a wonderful school. But is it accessible to the community? No. It is not. We were not even considered for admission, even though my daughter is academically really advanced. The reason? Because we are not affiliated with the University. Luckily they are expanding, so more children can be admitted. On the contrary to the reviewer below, we send our daughter to the British School of Chicago ( A fabulous alternative). She is very happy there, and is excelling."

    "I am a new middle schooler at Lab and I absolutely love this school. I was worried about adjusting to a new school, but everyone is really nice and supportive of each other here which made my transition a lot easier. It is a very diverse school and the community is very open-minded. The academic program is stellar and I am learning so much every day. The music program is also amazing. The only thing I am not happy about is the athletic program, which could use a lot of work. Also, there is an enormous amount of academic pressure but it is bearable. I have attended six different schools already and none of them are even half as good as Lab. I love going to school every day and I will never regret coming here."

    "Excellent school. But for those of you looking for a long school day, I am warning you, children go to school for more than 7 hours a day in grades 5+. It is almost eight hours. The school starts at 8:00 and ends and 3:30. That's 7 1/2 hours. You should definetly send your child here if you're looking for a private school. My kid went to Chicago British School for three years and she hated it. Now we transferred to Lab and she wants to go to school every day. This school is amazing."

    "Our child has been at Lab K-5th grade and we've been extremely happy with the education and the administration. Just wish a great education like this in the city didn't cost so much..."
