The Lang School is an alternative school in lower Manhattan for high potential, gifted, and twice-exceptional (2e) students in grades 2 through 12. "2e" students are both particularly strong learners and have diagnosed learning challenges (e.g., dyslexia, ADHD, anxiety, HFA), in addition to the social-emotional and behavioral difficulties that tend to accompany this asynchrony. Our curriculum is rigorous and richly differentiated, flexibly meeting the needs of students who need both acceleration and support intervention plans.
Lang faculty and therapeutic staff actively partner in all aspects of student education and development. We invest generously in professional development and offer collaborative mentoring opportunities throughout the school year with staff developers. Lang educators are self-motivated, have an ongoing interest in personal and professional growth, a commitment to open and transparent communications, and a desire to invest in a larger community mission of equity, excellence, and innovation.
