Mayfair Laboratory School began through a unique partnership between the East Baton Rouge School System and the University Laboratory School (ULS) at Louisiana State University (LSU).
It was created in 2013 as a K-3rd grade school, with plans to add a grade level each subsequent year through 8th grade in the year 2019.
The partnership between ULS and MLS came into being when it was questioned whether a lab school would perform well in a public school setting. University Lab School has traditionally been recognized as one of the highest performing schools in the state, and now Mayfair Lab has proven itself with consistently scoring a school rating of an A each year since inception.
Mayfair Lab follows the model of organization and instruction currently in place at the University Lab School. We emphasize rigorous instruction that allows students to perform at their highest levels.
In grades K-3, each classroom has two teachers: an instructor with a Master degree and an associate with at least a Bachelor degree. In grades 4-5, there are two instructors and one associate per grade level. Our dual teacher model in the elementary grades allows instruction to meet the students' needs with intervention and acceleration.
With the extra support during foundational years, students progress to our middle school prepared for the rigorous coursework and are offered opportunities to explore interests and earn high school credits.
Our Educational Philosophy
Learning is experiential. By rooting academics in real world experiences, the content and skills gain purpose. We create environments that allow students to explore areas of interest thus exciting them to dig deeper in pursuit of knowledge and empowering them to be the change makers in our global society.
