University Schools

University Schools - Pioneers in Education

University Schools is a tuition free 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

It’s hard to believe that November 3 was the last day of the first trimester.

Spring, 2017, assessment data were presented to the Board of Governors at the September Board meeting. The data were then used to write the Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) which is a plan outlining strategies for improvement. A group of teachers and administrators worked on the Plan which will be submitted to the District and then to the Colorado Department of Education. University’s ranking is at Performance which is the highest ranking.

On October 17, staff spent a full day participating in inservice activities. There were presentations on brain-based learning, differentiation, project-based learning and training on our new K-5 math curriculum.

Our fall sports are winding down and winter sports are beginning. Please join us for athletic contests, concerts, and other activities.

Please note that the current 2017/2018 calendar has some date changes:

School will be in session: 

  • K-12 February 1 and 2

There will be no school for students:

  • K-5 February 8
  • K-12 February 9

This change was made due to the fact that the Colorado Council of International Reading Association Conference changed its dates. By having no school on those specific dates, it allows nearly 30 of our teachers to attend the conference.

Thank you for your understanding in the changes on the calendar. We hope this is not an inconvenience for your family.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
