Press Coverage


  • Charleston Today

    JASON KREUTNER is founder and head of the University School of the Lowcountry (USL) which is a third-through-twelfth grade independent school in Mount Pleasant. In addition to a standard curriculum where math, science, humanities, writing, and language are given strong emphasis, USL features small classes, flexible course work based on skill and progress, and a program of “learning outside the classroom” where students spend one day per week (on over 30 field trips per year) experiencing direct interaction with, and service to, the community—all with the goal of balancing each student’s intellectual, physical, emotional, ethical, and social development. Peter sat down with Jason recently to talk about education, technology, and change.

  • The Island Eye News

    Students from University School of the Lowcountry researched Isle of Palms mayoral and town council candidates, as well as the $5.5 million marina referendum, as part of their annual exploration of elections and the democratic process. However, at USL, the research only provided the knowledge base for the hands-on learning to begin. Third through 12th graders from USL spent Nov. 7 polling voters at more than two-dozen sites around Charleston and Berkeley Counties, including the Isle of Palms Recreation Center and Isle of Palms City Hall. “Exit polling is an annual tradition at USL,” says head of school, Jason Kreutner.
