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 this newsletter finds you and your family doing well and looking forward to spring.

On March 2, we will begin offering to our students a "Grab and Go" breakfast as well as a la carte items from 7:15 to 7:45 a.m. in the main building cafeteria. There was a flyer sent home previously with elementary students and sent via e-mail on February 9. Middle school students will be able to come to the main building to purchase breakfast or breakfast items. It is our hope that District 6 Nutrition Services will be able to provide the breakfast service in both buildings beginning next fall.

We will begin our spring assessments on Monday, March 9 and complete the assessments after spring break. Students will take paper/pencil tests and online tests depending on grade level and content. We encourage parents to schedule appointments after school so that it does not conflict with our testing schedule. 

Board of governors nomination forms were available beginning on Monday, February 9 and are due on Tuesday, March 3, 2015. There are three positions open on the board. If you have any questions, please call or send me an e-mail.

Thanks to those of you who filled out our parent survey. We will use the information from the report to make improvements and address your suggestions. Overall, the survey results were very positive.

After spring break, our budget committee will begin its work to recommend a 2015-2016 budget to the board of governors. The budget committee consists of staff and members of the school accountability committee and board of governors.

Below you’ll find important upcoming dates. Thank you for your support of University Schools.

Assessment Dates:

  • March 9-31- 2015 CMAS/PARCC Testing for grades 3-11

Thank you for your continued support and confidence in University Schools. If I can answer any questions, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Sherry Gerner
