The U School

The U School is a new, non-selective district high school opening in the fall of 2014 at the Ferguson Campus located at 2000 N. 7th Street. At The U School, students become "urban designers" who solve real-world problems in their communities through research, planning, designing, and by testing their ideas.

Through these project-based learning experiences, students will gain 21st century skill-sets.  Traditional courses are re-organized into interdisciplinary courses that are broken down into learning modules. For example, "Urban Ecology" brings together learning objectives from the fields of science, social studies, and mathematics. Learn more at
