Welcome Class of 2024!

A HUGE Urban Welcome to Our Class of 2024!

We are so excited for you to join Urban School! Right now is a challenging time for all of us who love going to school every day. Urban’s campus is currently closed due to the coronavirus. We have implemented what we call Virtual Urban – different, but still with collaborative classrooms, online affinity spaces and linked up lunchtimes.

We can’t wait to be back on campus and wanted to share with you this video of everyday life in the Urban community. We hope this shows you how much fun it is to be an Urban Blue. Whether you’re an athlete, an artist, a writer or a scientist, our goal is to inspire your passion for learning so that you may start exploring who you are and who you want to become.

We can’t wait to see you in the fall. If you need more information, please visit the Class of 2024 page.

Go Blues!
