University Schools

The University Schools compendium serves over 1,200 students from all 36 zip codes in Shelby County.

While our schools were first established over 100 years ago as a training site for our teacher training programs, the full "compendium" was established in 2019 to ensure a full path for children from birth through high school graduation. The University Schools, as public school partnerships with Memphis Shelby County Schools (MSCS), have no academic requirements for entry, consistently rank in the

We are excited to welcome back our Tigers tomorrow, Tuesday, January 23, 2024, for in-person learning at all schools! πŸ’™πŸ―πŸ’™

Students should bring a water bottle with them to school & dress warmly. Please use caution & allow extra time for travel while on campus.

Tomorrow, Monday, January 22, 2024, will be a virtual learning day for the ELRC, Campus School, University Middle School, and University High School.

You will receive an email from your school with specific details of how to access online learning for tomorrow.

We are working with MLGW, University of Memphis Physical Plant, and outside contractors to ensure the water pressure and heat in our buildings allows for safe school occupancy for a hopeful Tuesday return to in-person learning. We know this is not an ideal situation for our families, students, faculty, or staff. However, we also do not want to delay further learning opportunities this semester for our students.

We have worked with St. Luke’s to secure a learning location for up to 40 students on a first come, first served basis. The hours for childcare will be from 9am until 6pm. Any child who currently utilizes St. Luke’s after care will not be charged for the first three days of service (although we hope and anticipate we will be back in the building on Tuesday, January 23, 2024). Families who do not currently utilize St. Luke’s will be charged $50 per day to support their ability to provide this service. If you are interested, please email Sheridan Harris at [email protected].

We will write again tomorrow to provide an update for Tuesday, January 23, 2024.
