Lab High Reunion. Fri Nov 25 2022‼️

Alabama State University Laboratory High School 1920 -1969

In 1969, Lab High closed as part of a reorganization of Alabama State College to university status. The Laboratory High School building of the 1940s, Tullibody Hall, no longer stands.

The Laboratory High School, founded in 1920, was located on the campus of the Alabama State Teachers College in Tullibody Hall, along with the college’s John W. Beverly Science Hall, music
conservatory, and gymnasium. During the Secondary School Study, 300 students in grades K-12 were enrolled, with over 150 students attending the secondary school, grades 8-12. Since “Lab High” was
receiving public funds as well as support from Alabama State College, admission to the school was open, i.e., nonselective. This led to a more diverse student population of abilities and interests (Dunn,1946).

The high school faculty included eight full-time teachers and nine part-time teachers from the college. Lab High, whose slogan
during this time was, “Study the growth and beauty of nature-plants and animals for individual development,” served primarily as a site for the observation of classes by preservice teachers, with occasions for practice teaching (Hardy, 1943). Most student teaching placements were located off campus.
