    We are taking a break from our usual Monday feature to highlight this year's All-School Reunion Picnic and the dedication of the Malcolm Price Laboratory School Commemorative Plaza. What a great turnout for both!

    We've updated the reunions page with a few photos from this weekend. If you have photos you'd like to share please email them to us at pricelabhistory@gmail.com

    Be sure to mark your calendars for next year's picnic: June 24th, 2017.

    As an instructor at the lab school from 1965 through 1988, Mrs. Duee impacted the lives of many students who recall her with much fondness. A quick look at her vitae shows just how far beyond the lab school walls her influence was able to reach. From the creation of the Beginning Reading Conference, to numerous curriculum projects, even helping with the teacher’s guide for the PBS show “3, 2, 1, Contact” and more, Joan exemplifies the mission of the lab school and the teaching profession.

    Modest. Humble. Self-less. These words rise first when one thinks of Paul Brimm, Lab School secondary principal from 1948 to 1964. However, they mask the core: the strong, courageous, and highly respected leader and his career.
