A Message From Mr. Labbe’
Stephen LabbeWelcome to Southeastern Laboratory School. Our goal is to help develop students who
care for others and are creative in their work and encouraging to all. Our students,
staff, and families work together to create an environment of high achieving academic
success.

The Lab School is a PreK-8th grade school of choice with approximately 260 students.
Our students are from very diverse backgrounds with cultures from around the world
being represented.

Being a part of Southeastern Louisiana University and Tangipahoa School System makes
us a very unique school. Our school is here to help the Teach Education Program by
modeling best teaching practices for their students as well as having a place for
their students to gain practicum hours and resident teaching experience.

On behalf of our faculty and staff, welcome to another year of committed excellence
to academic, social, and emotional growth of our students.
