The U School embraces a prototyping culture where curiosity, experimentation and reflection guide learning expeditions. We use the design process and rigorous learning pathways to facilitate growth regardless of incoming math or literacy skills. EVERY student will be prepared for postsecondary education/training and careers without the need for remediation. In the process, our students will create solutions for our city and prove that youth are MORE than capable of success at the high school level.

Points Of Pride

New personalized and competency-based high school. Our school will grow with the input of our users (students, families, educators and community).
