The University of Memphis is home to University Schools, a compendium of laboratory schools, including the Barbara K. Lipman Early Learning & Research Center, Campus Elementary School, University Middle and University High School, as well as our partner programs with Porter-Leath and the Harwood Center.

The mission of University Schools is to provide the children of our community with educational experiences that enhance their development from birth to graduation and promote dynamic research, collaborative partnerships and innovative practices.
