Message from the Principals
The faculty, staff and administration welcome you to the University Heights Intermediate website! At UHI we show Raider P.R.I.D.E. by showing patience, respect, integrity, dependability and excellence. We ask you to join us in continuing to build this fine tradition!
Our 81,000 square foot, state-of-the-art building is equipped with Apple TV’s in every classroom, approximately 100 chromebooks and dozens of iPADs. In January, our 5th graders will be one to one with their very own Macbook! Along with the available technology, we employ an educational technology facilitator who gives technology instruction to our students in the morning. In the afternoon, she gives support to classroom teachers as they work on projects. She co-teaches with classroom teachers, gathers online materials, or troubleshoots computers and programs.
Our teachers are the best in the state! Along with many holding MSE degrees, we have six National Board for Professional Teaching certified teachers. At UHI we not only have extracurricular classes such as art, music, fitness, physical educational, technology, social skills training, and conflict resolution, students also participate in classes teaching conversational spanish.
Teaching does not just stay within the walls of the building! We have recently received grants to create the UHI Natural Science Lab/Outdoor classroom. This classroom will be used to create a calming environment for teachers to take their students outdoors to simply read, work independently, study topics such as: weather, ecosystems, solar energy, gardening, measuring and much, much more! Currently we have seating for 50 students, student-made stepping stones, path and landscaping. The plans for this classroom include a butterfly garden, peace walk, serenity area, outdoor chalkboard, weather station and pergola.
Hopefully our website will give you a glimpse of what it means to attend our amazing school! If you have any questions or if we can help you, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to make your child’s educational experience the best it possibly can be!
