• Who We Are

    University Schools (US) is a K–12 public charter school located in Greeley School District 6. For more than 120 years, we have

    demonstrated our commitment and tradition to provide our students an innovative and pioneering model of education.

    Our Mission

    University Schools will prepare students emotionally and educationally for learning, leading, and caring citizenship in their academic, social, and civic communities.

    Our Vision

    University Schools envision a caring and supportive environment where students become self-directed through personalized experiences. Students, teachers and parents cooperate to develop autonomous learning in a learner-centered school.

    Our Roots

    University Schools just celebrated our 130th anniversary!
