E.E. Ford Fellows Program

E.E. Ford Fellows Program at University High School

As Assistant Head of School Alicia LaMagdeleine wrote in fall 2016, “This year, University High School will embark on a two-year focus on teaching and learning, allowing us to examine and refine an already excellent academic program and to continue our practice of student-centered learning.”

This work, made possible by the E.E. Ford Fellows program at University High School, has begun, and we want to share it with you.

Each month, we’ll post stories telling you about the conferences we’re attending, the schools we’re visiting, the ideas and innovations that are exciting us, and the latest in our plans to make University High School an even better place for students.

We ask you — parents, alumni, and friends — to make the remainder of this effort a reality. If we are able to raise $50,000 from our community, the E.E. Ford Fellows Foundation will chip in an extra $50,000 that our teachers can use to more fully explore the leading ideas in teaching and learning and to set the direction of our school for years to come.
