About Our Report Card

At SNU Lab School, we value the equal integration of academic excellence, project-based learning, and the development of social-emotional intelligence. Our approach, rooted in the mastery learning model, thoughtfully evaluates student success across these vital areas, embodying our rich educational heritage while fostering a sense of belonging for every student. 

What Makes Us Different Makes a Difference!

Standards-Based Assessment 

This method gives parents and teachers detailed insights into specific skills and knowledge of students, enhancing the consistency across grades and schools. It focuses solely on the mastery of content knowledge, teamwork, and behavioral expectations. This clear approach highlights students' strengths and precisely identifies areas where they may need more support.

Mastery Learning Model

In this model, students are allowed to work on a concept or skill until they achieve mastery. We assess their mastery level using a 4-point scale, ensuring a thorough understanding of each topic.

Hands-On Learning

We advocate a "Hands-On" learning approach, where subjects like Language Arts, History/Social Studies, Science, Technology, and Art are seamlessly integrated into project-based activities. This method encourages active participation and a deeper understanding of the subjects through practical application.

Project Based Learning (PBL) 

Project-based learning is a dynamic classroom approach in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges and acquire more profound knowledge. In this process, students use empathy to connect with an iterative human-centered design approach that allows them to practice applying a growth mindset as they develop grit and persistence. These standards are aligned with 21st Century Skills.

Developing Creative Confidence by Design!

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

Social Emotional Learning is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. These standards align with those set by the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning.

The Lab School places a high priority on the social-emotional development of every student. It's been part of our DNA from the very beginning.

Content Area Learning

The SNU Lab School uses a Standards-based report card. Unlike traditional report cards, where students receive one letter grade for reading, one for math, one for science, and so on, standards-based report cards provide more detail by reporting skill categories that align with specific content standards within each subject area. 

Students learn best when their school experience is connected to real life. Our skills-based curriculum focuses on equipping students with required knowledge and appropriate life skills.

Graduate Profile

Expected Student Outcomes:

At SNU Lab School, we are committed to nurturing students who exemplify academic proficiency and spiritual maturity, demonstrating Christian virtues in every aspect of their lives. Our educational approach is profoundly influenced by biblical principles, which encourage a life of service, integrity, and love as modeled by Christ. Here are the expected student outcomes, interwoven with these foundational Christian values:

Students at SNU Lab School excel in academic and life skills through a curriculum that integrates biblical wisdom. They are taught to approach learning with the diligence and dedication that one would offer in service to the Lord, excelling in disciplines such as Language Arts, History/Social Studies, Science, Technology, and Art. This not only promotes academic excellence but also honors God through their mastery of each subject.

Our approach to developing critical thinking skills is inspired by biblical encouragements to seek wisdom and understanding. Students engage in dynamic problem-solving through project-based and hands-on learning environments. This method challenges them to address real-world problems with creativity, using the analytical skills and discernment that are consistent with Christian teachings.

Our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) program is influenced by Christian values that promote fruits of the Spirit such as self-control, kindness, and faithfulness. Students learn to manage emotions, set and achieve goals, show empathy, and maintain positive relationships, preparing them to navigate life's challenges with a demeanor that reflects Christ's teachings.

Encouraging students to explore their God-given talents leads to the development of creative confidence and independence. Like skilled craftsmen in the Bible who used their God-bestowed talents for His glory, our students engage in design thinking and engineering projects that foster leadership and enable them to express themselves artistically and emotionally.

Students are prepared to be global citizens who practice Christ's commandment to love our neighbors. Our curriculum enriches their understanding of the world, promoting empathy and cultural appreciation. This equips them with the skills necessary to contribute positively to a diverse and interconnected global community.

The entrepreneurial spirit we nurture is reflective of the biblical praise for resourcefulness and adaptability. Our curriculum fosters self-awareness and social intelligence, equipping students for leadership and innovation. This preparation ensures they are ready to make significant societal contributions with integrity and purpose.

We instill in our students the ability to adapt and persevere, inspired by biblical teachings on contentment and strength through faith. Our Christian educational program ensures that students are not only prepared for academic success but also equipped to face future challenges with resilience and continuous personal growth.

By grounding our educational outcomes in these biblical principles, SNU Lab School ensures that each student achieves not only academic excellence but also grows into a spiritually mature individual ready to serve, lead, and excel in all facets of life.
