Laboratory schools are unique and began as a concept in experimental education around the turn of the twentieth century. John Dewey, a philosopher, psychologist and educational reformer, started the first laboratory school in conjunction with the University of Chicago. Lab schools can include various grade levels, but all have a connection to a college or university. UNI's lab school experience also began in the late 1800s with the model school idea.
