School Notes:

On a vibrant, expansive campus that currently houses nearly 2,000 students in junior kindergarten through grade 12, University School students enjoy a challenging academic curriculum with a wide range of choices, strong fine and performing arts options, and a robust athletic program. University School helps develop global leaders who acquire the knowledge, skills, and habits that are required for them to be successful. This year, the Robotics Team won the highest award at their recent tournament, the speech and debate team ranks in the top 1 percent in the nation (third year in a row), and our chess teams scored among the top five in their grade-defined sections and qualified for the chess championship (third year in a row)!   University School’s Early Childhood Program (starting at age 4) provides students with a warm, inviting, and safe school environment where state-of-the-art teaching takes center stage. Starting as early as junior kindergarten, University School sets a foundation for success and a love for learning in a child-centered setting. Our innovative classroom design facilitates collaboration, cooperation, active learning, and personalized instruction, taught by educators who are passionate about teaching and have a wealth of experience with young learners.    While there are many resources available to students who attend University School, its location on the campus of Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is a unique advantage. University School’s collaboration with NSU—the ninth largest, not-for-profit, private university in the nation—offers our students a host of opportunities.   As part of NSU, University School affords students unprecedented access to college-level resources, which gives students an advantage as they prepare for post-secondary school life. University School has a number of innovative academic programs where collaboration with NSU has led to new levels of research and scholarly achievement. Many University School students are Science Research Program participants, Robotics Team members, Independent Research Study participants, Math Fellows, and Writing Fellows. Through these affiliations, they have the opportunity to work alongside and share a campus with world-class NSU scientists, researchers, and distinguished professors, who visit University School classrooms and mentor students.   University School has the right formula and the right environment to promote all students’ abilities to learn, grow, and succeed academically, socially, and personally. Students go on to attend many of the nation’s most prestigious universities and, more importantly, most of them are admitted to their college of first choice.
