“The University School is a unique learning environment that fits the needs of many students who want to, or who need to, learn in a creative, nurturing and highly individualized environment.  The small size of the school provides a safe refuge for its students where learning is wonderfully accessible. The teachers and administration at the University School are committed to each and every student.”
