Hudson Lab School



A personalized, project-based education

that inspires curiosity, creativity & exploration


Hudson Lab School is a new, independent K-12 school located in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY in Westchester. We will open in Fall 2017 in a single, mixed-age classroom teaching children aged 4.5 - 8. At Hudson Lab School, we integrate the rigorous academics of a classical liberal arts education with collaborative, interdisciplinary project-based learning and thoughtful self-reflection. Our mission is to instill a love of learning and to teach children how to design and build a life in which they can thrive. 




Project-based learning prepares students to frame and solve real-world problems and issues through age-appropriate exploration. Projects begin with a meaningful question or problem that students work to solve or answer using a multi-step process. Projects require students to utilize multiple learning techniques, including core skills like reading, writing and math as well as research, logical deduction and other 21st century skills. Projects come in all sizes: Some are individual but many are too large and complex for one student to do alone. As a result, project-based learning often encourages teamwork.



  • Personal and social responsibility
  • Self reliance, understanding and grit
  • Planning, critical thinking, reasoning, and creativity
  • Iterative learning (trial and error)
  • Strong communication skills (both interpersonal and presentation)
  • Cross-cultural understanding and community involvement
  • Visualizing and decision making
  • Knowing how and when to use technology and choosing the most appropriate tool for the task

Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.

Science Sunday

Hudson Lab School is teaming up with Curious-on-Hudson to host SCIENCE SUNDAY! Fun and educational, your child will have the opportunity to investigate SPACE with Dobbs Ferry high school senior, Regeneron Science Talent Search finalist, and 2017 Siemens Competition national finalist, Blake Hord. Let Blake walk you and your child around space a bit. Learn about the many formations that are floating around in space and then you and your child will have a chance to build a cool DIY project that will investigate the formation of planets, stars, and galaxies, and how they make up the very universe that we’re spinning around in! Best of all, let a really enthusiastic young scientist share his passions and experiences with your kids... nothing like a little peer-to-peer science geekery to open up young minds.
