Mission & Goals
Our mission is to inspire a passionate commitment to learning. We strive to
create engaging learning opportunities for students that are relevant in the
world beyond the school. We leverage technology to extend the reach and grasp of
our students and infuse the arts into learning to foster creativity and empower
students to represent their understanding in a wide variety of ways.

University School Name
University School is so named because of its close proximity and affiliation to the University of Calgary. It was built in 1967 through joint funding from the Provincial Government, Calgary Board of Education, and the University of Calgary. The initial partnership heralded the role of the school as a training school for pre-service teachers in the Faculty of Education. A contract between the two parties encourages innovative practice, opportunities for collaborative inquiry, and active research.
