We are excited to announce that Utah Mountain School, a tuition-free, public Jr High, will be located in Harrisville, opening August 2021. The location has been approved, and we have been working with a great group of contributors to bring Utah Mountain School to life beyond the pages of the charter that was written. Now, architects are working on sketches of what the building and outdoor learning spaces will look like at our site.
Students have frequent opportunities to experience learning outside the walls of traditional classrooms.
Project-based learning connects students to their learning in ways that traditional instruction often doesn't.
Students will learn about personal awareness and acceptance of those who may be different from them.
Administrators, faculty, and staff all play very important roles in students' lives. At UMS, we see ourselves as role models who bring out the best in students and encourage them to strive for greatness. We share our knowledge and help them to become better people.
As important as it is, just being where students are is not enough. Instead, we create expectations that we will have a place in each student's life (and those of their families) as they transition from class to class, grade to grade, and on to high school.
It truly takes a village to educate students. Teachers to administrators. Board members to staff. There will be a lot of adults committed to making each student's experience at Utah Mountain School productive and safe--as unique as each student who walks through the doors of UMS.
We will be opening our doors August 2021. More information, including our exact location, will be available soon, so please check back often, or submit your contact information below to be added to our mailing list:Contact Us
