Our elementary school includes kindergarten through fifth grade. We offer small in-person class sizes and a remote learning option. Our unique mixed-grade classes allow younger learners to reach and be challenged and older learners to gain and practice leadership skills. Students spend two years with a teacher allowing teachers to gain a deeper understanding of each individual student’s learning.
Our progressive, project-based approach lets students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time investigating authentic, engaging, and complex questions or systems. Asking questions, conducting Interviews, Collecting information, working side by side with experts and taking important trips directly related to specific studies make the classrooms at UFS a place where meaningful learning happens.
