• Girls in library

  • Explore. Create. Imagine

    CityLab High School seeks to redefine the way that we educate and prepare students for next generation jobs and industries by opening up the world around our students as their classroom.

    Here, students study and evaluate their city and communities through hands-on, innovative, project-based learning that seek to expose them to professional industry experiences and exploration as well as student field experiences and internships with our community partnerships.
