Fayetteville Street Lab School is a traditional K-5 school that provides a 1:17 teacher/student ratio. Teachers engage students in varied and innovative instructional techniques and strategies. Parents are an integral part of the learning process. We see parental involvement as a critical aspect of the many educational initiatives we have undertaken with our students. We implement an "Exemplary" HOSTS (Help One Student To Succeed) Reading Program which attracts volunteers from the community and the Research Triangle Park.


Student achievement has been enhanced by the following means: offering remediation sessions on teacher workdays; increasing the level of parental involvement; implementing broad-scale uses of various technology in grades K-5; enhancing our staff development opportunities; instituting Guided Reading and the Four-Block Model; encouraging teacher-led initiatives; and making conscious efforts at collaborative manner to give our children greater chances at success.

Several academic recognition programs have been designed and implemented to acknowledge a broad range of students from those who earn "A'' and B's" to those who have achieved noteworthy improvements in their course work and/or behavior.

Services for Academically/Intellectually Gifted Students

We provide a pullout resource program for our Academically/Intellectually Gifted students.

Creativity is fostered through discussion, projects, and individual choice.
