An elementary school that has served as a teaching laboratory has been attached to the State Normal School of Los Angeles (UCLA's predecessor) since 1882. It has occupied space in a Downtown Los Angeles location, a Hollywood ranch and its present site in Westwood. While on the Westwood campus, the school has gone by three names: The University Elementary School (UES)(1950-1982), the Corinne A. Seeds University Elementary School (1982-2009) and the UCLA Lab School (2009-present). A portion of the school designed by the firm of Neutra and Alexander was torn down in the 1980s to make way for the Anderson School of Management, generating controversy.
