  • Featured Memory - "My Lab School Remembrance"

    Posted: Jan 23, 2017
    Our featured memory for this Monday was submitted by Jim Brewer in 2013.

    Jim writes of what he saw as the singular uniqueness of Price Lab School, defined by the firmly held precepts embodied by the leadership: mutual respect for everyone in the community; the freedom to express and defend a viewpoint; and the belief that each person had the innate ability – and right - to develop according to their own goals.

    We hope it will spark fond memories of your own and that you'll take a few minutes to share those with us on the "Our Memories"page at PriceLabHistory.org


    We'd love to hear from you!

    “If you are looking for excellence, you will find it here. If you are looking for challenge, you will find it here. If you are looking for opportunity, you will find it here. If you are looking for commitment, you will find it here, too.”
    -- Ross A. Nielsen

    These words, by which Ross so well captured the spirit and culture of the lab school, could just as easily be used to describe Ross himself. A tireless advocate for students and educators alike, we are pleased to share our full profile of Ross A. Nielsen as this week's featured faculty/administration.
