Admissions Welcomes You!

Thank you for your interest in Urban! We are so excited to share our community with you. We look forward to connecting with you as you learn more about our school and why Urban believes there is a better way to educate high school students. Urban’s approach has always been to teach our students how to think, not what to think.

This fall we hope you can explore what makes Urban School so special. We invite you to experience our vibrant community where students are encouraged to cultivate a sense of belonging for themselves and others. Visit our classrooms to see Urban’s profound student-teacher relationships and our exciting curriculum, driven by student interest and collaboration. Urban celebrates the adolescent experience and encourages our students to push boundaries and make mistakes, all toward the goal of becoming the person they want to be.

All of us at Urban send our best wishes for your successful 8th grade year. Please let us know if you or your family need any assistance (such as translation services, internet, technology or physical access needs, etc.). If you have any questions, please reach out to us or any of our community members, and know that we will be with you every step of the way to guide you and your family through this exciting high school search process! We can’t wait to get to know you throughout the admissions season. There are many shades of Urban “Blue” and we hope you see yourself as one of them as you explore our school.

Warmest regards,

Lauren Byrne, Director of Admissions
Ken Chou (’14), Associate Director of Admissions
Nick Andino (’18), Admissions Associate & Outreach Coordinator
