University Schools - Pioneers in Education
University Schools is a K-12 public charter school located in Greeley School District 6 in Greeley, Colorado. The tradition of developing better ways to teach our children is at the heart of University Schools. University Schools has been a leader in education for more than a century.
At University Schools, we believe that children learn best in a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment. Our students enjoy a student-led, teacher-guided educational experience.
At University High School, we focus on creating a student-centered learning program. We prepare our students for success beyond school, as they develop personal and academic plans and portfolios and participate in community service projects. We invite you to take a look around our website to see what we have to offer for your child.
A Message from Our Director
Dear University Schools Families,
I hope you have enjoyed our beautiful fall weather. As we approach the colder winter weather season, we know that there can be the possibility of school closure. We have included an inclement weather procedure in our November newsletter. We will have parent/teacher conferences during the month of November for elementary and middle school students and for some high school students. We conduct many of our high school conferences during mid-term of the first and second trimesters.
On October 17, a team of teachers and administrators reviewed our school’s testing data so that we could write our Unified Improvement Plan that we submit to District 6 for accreditation. Our focus continues to be in the areas of writing and mathematics. During in-service days and early release Mondays our staff will plan together so that our curriculum aligns with preparation for our new spring 2015 tests, the Colorado Measures of Academic Success, CMAS. We are also working with two experts – Nan Woodson, math consultant, and Dr. Suzette Youngs, reading professor at UNC, to assist us with our curriculum work.
My wish for you and your family is a wonderful Thanksgiving break. And, as always, please contact me if I can answer any questions. Thank you for your support of University Schools.
Sherry Gerner, Ed.D.
