Suggesting study, research, and collaboration, the word “Laboratory,” or Lab, is the ideal Dalton educational experience. Labs are one-to-one and small group sessions between students and teachers that augment formal classroom instruction. Students schedule these meetings throughout the day to discuss work in progress, continue conversations that began in class, review assessments, and explore new topics. Time for students to meet with teachers and discuss ideas or difficulties is an integral part of the instructional model in the Dalton High School. Dalton High School students have several Lab periods each week in addition to their regularly scheduled classes. On occasion, the High School dedicates school-wide open labs to facilitate meeting time.
