The Lang School offers gifted and twice exceptional (2e) learners in grades K through 12 a STEM- and STEAM-driven education informed by the ethics, poetics, and universal questions of the humanities. Our specially trained gifted and special education teachers dually differentiate the content and delivery of our standards-based academics in small classes of no more than 12 students. Our pedagogy dovetails rigorous, accelerated academics and integrated, research-based supports. As a result, we meet each student where they are in their trajectory of learning. Our capstone Talent Development Program nurtures a sense of purpose by identifying and deepening areas of interest and strength, transforming native promise into talent, and facilitating early specialization and the acquisition of professional-level skills and commitment.
Serving a community of twice exceptional learners (2e) requires a highly adaptive approach and a flexible mind-set. Our staff has demonstrated their abilities to differentiate for a wide spectrum of learning differences for nearly a decade, continuously improving their practices based on factual evidence, the latest research, and the emergence of new tools. Our ten year know-how about differentiation for gifted students with learning differences meant that the Lang school was uniquely positioned for a world that desperately needed high quality distance learning. Due to our success in rapidly translating our rigorous differentiated curriculum and learning to an online platform, the Lang School has decided to open up a permanent virtual branch — virtualLang — so that we can extend our services to 2e learners across the United States and beyond.
