I've admired the work of the folks at Design-Lab Schools...

for quite a few years and have seen first-hand, their commitment to improving education for the most disadvantaged students. They have a successful track record of conquering the tough challenges of school improvement and new school start-ups by applying their skills as creative, smart, education experts.

DCAD and Design-Lab Schools share the conviction that design...

has so much power to change the world for the better. I enthusiastically and strongly support a partnership between DCAD and Delaware Design-Lab High School because we both believe that design learning is at the core of critical thinking and a rigorous contextual learning environment.

Stuart Baron MFA - President, Delaware College of Art & Design (DCAD)

We're excited about our partnership with Delaware Design-Lab High School!

Their graduates will be well prepared for our digital arts programs, design practices, and the studio environment. A high school that teaches young adults through Design-Thinking will transform educational opportunities for Delaware students and offer the University of Delaware, uniquely prepared, critical thinkers and social innovators.

Janet Hethorn, Ph.D. Chair, Department of Art, University of Delaware & Director of the Delaware Design Institute

The Design-Lab Schools team has the expertise in education and business...

to effectively provide the services clients need. They understand how the intersection of design, engineering, the sciences and entrepreneurship can improve schools. Since they offer innovations in K-12 and we do the same in higher education, we look forward to partnering with them in the years to come.

Natalie W. Nixon, Ph.D. Director of Strategic Design MBA, Philadelphia University

Design-Lab Schools offers the full complement of highly skilled educators...

with deep knowledge of school systems, leadership tested in a variety of settings and at different levels, as well as in a business environment. Their commitment to innovation is evident in their body of work, that includes managing building level leadership, central office colleagues, and State Department level leadership, all toward increased accountability, capacity building and performance management.
