Students learn the purpose and systems present in this parking lot's run-off water trench
Actively fostering a culture of learning is what makes a great school. Preparing students with strong mathematical reasoning skills, a sound conceptual grasp of science, tools for written and oral expression, the ability to understand and interact with a diverse world and instilling them with a thirst for knowledge and joy in learning are important goals. Safe and functional buildings suited to the educational mission of the school are also vital. Still, the primary determinants of success for students are the expectations and the quality of teachers.
Many teachers in K-12 educational institutions are outstanding. Yet, to create ideal conditions for students, University School deliberately seeks the best teachers. This entails hiring teachers who would succeed in many fields because of their drive, insight, curiosity, and ability. They enjoy learning and seek knowledge and understanding of many disciplines, and they are able to make connections among seemingly disparate topics because of this approach to engaging the world. These "Renaissance Scholars" are passionate about many interests, and this enthusiasm spills over into all disciplines that they teach, lending each lesson to interdisciplinary analysis and linkages to a diverse array of topics. Furthermore, University School teachers are committed to demonstrating and maintaining a healthy and ethical environment. Our faculty have the highest expectations for each other and for each student in all areas of their development: intellectually, physically, emotionally, ethically, and socially. It is in this type of atmosphere that our students can begin to grow and to develop their own interests while feeling supported by the school (family) community.
A great deal is expected of a University School faculty member. In order to retain teachers of this caliber and secure additional quality teachers, University School compensates its faculty at levels comparable to or better than other public and private schools. We also devote considerable resources to the ongoing professional and personal development of our teachers. USL teachers are certified in American Red Cross CPR/AED and have completed Darkness to Light's Stewards of Children sexual abuse prevention program. University School is also one of Darkness to Light's pioneer organizations in its Partner in Prevention program.
