Uni Hill Programs

What are some of Uni Hill’s in-school programs/offerings?

Rainbow Press, our award-winning in-school publishing house, allows students to write, edit, illustrate, layout, and bind their own stories in English or Spanish.

Outdoor Education combines community building and education through overnight trips for grades 4 and 5. All students experience outdoor education through day field trips and/or visiting speakers.

Visiting Programs, such as the Imagination Makers, enrich all students. Imagination Makers is a drama group that performs plays written by students, including those by University Hill students.
Student Council members are elected by their classmates and provide leadership, mentoring and spirit-building activities.

Peer Mediators, students trained in mediation techniques, help fellow students work through disagreements and minor conflicts while teaching them conflict resolution skills.
