What is Learning Lab?
Some of our students bring with them different aptitudes, strengths, weaknesses, and needs. As a college preparatory school, PBS requires all students to maintain an overall 2.0 GPA. Students with average to above average intelligence but have ADHD and/or learning differences; often require individualized assistance to realize success in the academic arena. To meet the demand for this service, PBS implemented a Learning Lab for students currently enrolled at PBS.
