The school was designed by an architect from Syiah Kuala University. On 5 June 2005, Pemerintah Provinsi Aceh through Dinas Pendidikan issued operational approval of SMA Laboratorium Universitas Syiah Kuala.

In October 2010, three years after its opening ceremony, SMA Labschool Unsyiah was appointed to be one of Rintisan Sekolah Bertaraf Internasional.
