What makes CityLab different from other high schools?
CityLab Innovation High School is for students who are looking for a different pathway than a traditional high school. In order to be a true, alternative program for students who need something different than a traditional high school setting, we designed CityLab. Some main differences are seen in curriculum like interdisciplinary courses, an application process so students have a voice and choice in their education, internship opportunities, exploration options, out-of-classroom experiences, small class sizes, Competency Based Learning (CBL) and dual enrollment to simultaneously receive college and high school credit.
