The U School embraces a prototyping culture where curiosity, experimentation, and reflection guide learning expeditions. We will utilize the design process and rigorous learning pathways to facilitate the growth of change agents regardless of incoming math or literacy skills. EVERY student will be prepared for post-secondary 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.

School Culture
Student Attendance99%
This is the average daily attendance at the school – on average, what percent of all the students enrolled at the school are in attendance. We don’t know why students may not be attending the school, but if this is a low number it is likely that teachers may have to spend more time reviewing material that absent students miss, making it harder to move forward in a class.
