Welcome from the Head of School
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to learn about the richness and vitality of the Urban community. Here you will find a school where learning is an active, joyful process of discovery – and where students are the key agents at the center of this process.
Urban’s extraordinary teachers inspire our students to become engaged, confident learners. As an Urban student, you are prepared for college and beyond through a mastery of subject matter and academic skills. But perhaps the most enduring aspect of an Urban education is that students learn to take responsibility for their education and become active citizens and leaders in their communities.
If you are an academic achiever, a creative thinker, a math or science stand-out, a skilled artist or athlete, a brilliant writer or a civic-minded individual who chooses to measure your success against your own potential, Urban is the place for you. After you explore our site, I urge you to come visit the school. We are eager to share Urban with you!
