Learning takes place in many ways. At University School, our mentors serve a valuable role in the life of our students and their families. Most are graduates of University School, and they are all nurturing, achievement-oriented, and positive role models. This group of young adults (high school and college students) comprise another layer of our community of curious learners, and they reinforce and demonstrate the ideals that are exemplified at University School. They participate in the life of our students at school and at evening and weekend events, and they serve as a resource for students and families interested in their respective schools, colleges, career fields.
In addition, current University School students also serve as mentors for kindergarteners at Hibben Preschool. It’s a wonderful opportunity to serve our community and develop important leadership skills.
