Sobre nosotros

The Lang School* is a progressive, independent K-12 school for gifted children and twice-exceptional/"2e" students (gifted children with ADHD, dyslexia, anxiety, HFA or, simply, underachievement). We believe our students are tomorrow's leaders and innovators, a national resource to be treasured, inspired and championed. We embrace each student's individuality, nurture their gifts, and empower them with self-knowledge, self-organization and problem-solving skills through a strengths-based approach to learning. We approach our staff's development with the same degree of commitment and sense of community.

* The Lang School is named for Cyril Lang, the founder's 10th grade English teacher—and an inspiration to her. He stood up to the Department of Education to teach a curriculum they considered too difficult for his "average"/"underachieving" students. Lang taught challenging material in unconventional ways, engaging his students in Socratic debates about Machiavelli's "The Prince" and Plato's "Republic," texts limited to 12th grade advanced placement classes. Although the school threatened to fire him if he didn't comply, he persisted. "I made a premeditated, intellectual decision to continue teaching the way I had," he said at the time. "There's nothing wrong with the genetic makeup of these students. It's the educational system that's declining. We are bearing witness to the triumph of mediocrity." Upon retirement, Lang joined the Peace Corps to teach literature in developing nations.,9171,922234-1,00.html
