University Elementary

University Elementary School started out as a K-12 Laboratory School on the Indiana University campus in 1938. Now located down the street from the University, our commitment to academic excellence continues to this day as we serve just over 600 students in preschool through sixth grade.

University Elementary is a naturally global school, welcoming students from around the world, who speak a variety of different languages. Our diverse population’s needs are met by all of our exceptional teachers. University is an authorized International Baccalaureate World School. Students engage in six conceptual units of inquiry each year that are collaboratively planned. Students focus on international mindedness and use their agency to make an impact in the local and global community. The MCCSC Elementary Accelerated Learning Program for Students (ALPS) is housed at University and serves MCCSC’s 14 district elementaries. The program is designed to meet the academic, intellectual, and social needs of formally identified high ability students with one class at each grade level, 4-6. We at University Elementary School work together to encourage our students to become inquisitive, reflective learners who value others in an inclusive community and around the world.

As an International Baccalaureate School, University Elementary students learn how to learn, to think critically, to pursue answers to their questions through inquiry, and to take action. These skills build from Pre K through 6th grade and culminate in the Exhibition, an in-depth project on a social or environmental issue. Students search out varied sources and perspectives on a topic. Students engage in the inquiry process to take action in a local or global capacity. Projects are balanced; while self-initiated and designed, they are also collaborative in planning, inquiring, and assessing.

University Elementary offers a variety of extra curricular opportunities for students across all grade levels including Chess Club, Robotics, Choir, Band, Strings, Chinese Club, Spanish Club, Knitting Club, Science Club, Running Club, Kiwanis Kids, Coding Club, Yoga, Gardening, and Harry Potter Club.
