About Outreach

The outreach mission of P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School since its establishment in 1934 has been rooted in a mandate to design and test strategies for improving educational and social-emotional outcomes for all students.

Through designing, testing, implementing, and analyzing educational innovations on our campus with our diverse student community, we are able to research curriculum, pedagogy, and social-emotional interventions by witnessing first-hand the impact on real children in real classrooms.

Our relevance to education in the state and around the nation is grounded in being a public school, serving a student community that reflects state demographics, committing to research and reflection on our own practice, and sharing what we learn with other educators.
