University Middle | A New Kind of School
Watch below to hear from students, parents, faculty and staff on what makes University Middle one of a kind!
A new kind of school
University Middle is a totally new kind of school. A school that reflects the demands of the dynamic, high-tech, diverse world in which we live. A school where students don’t just see people of different races and genders and religions – they work with them, learn from them and come to understand them. A school that teaches students to take ownership of their learning though projects they care about, with results they can touch, display, market, broadcast or give back to the community.
As an extension of the University of Memphis, University Middle is a school where education starts in classrooms, but ultimately ends up in the world. It is a school that values and practices hands-on learning. A school that builds its curriculum around the interests of the students who walk its halls. A school that isn’t just different; it’s fun!
