News from Urban Admissions

Urban School will continue its policy of not using standardized test scores when evaluating students for admission.

This action further supports Urban’s longtime commitment to access and equity, and will help simplify and streamline the process for students and families applying to the school. Our application review process is holistic and comprehensive, and a student’s capacity for success at Urban can be showcased in a multitude of ways.

We continue to value students with an enthusiastic approach to learning; a clear capacity for success in Urban’s innovative and rigorous academic program; and  an affinity for our mission and deeply held core values. To our interested 8th graders: we are excited to learn more about you and what you will bring to Urban!
