Several children have placed in the top 100 in SEA over the years, and graduates from The University School have gone on to win National Scholarships. The school also excels in extra- curricular activities, as it recently topped the East Zone Swim Meet by a great margin. The musical talent of the students is event as both the school’s Folk Choir and the Advanced Pan Side performed on National television after excelling in the Music Festival. The University School also has avid scrabble, chess, cricket, football and Cub Scout clubs. This institution is devoted to the development of healthy, enlightened, self-reliant children in an environment of caring, committed teachers and families.
