Our Mission and Vision

The UNMS experience is built upon the vision and mission that developing the whole child into young adulthood encompasses trust, consistency, achievement, respect, empathy and shared responsibility. We realize living in the urban landscape requires understanding, thoughtfulness and care. A true learning community is built by all the facets of our students experiences, growth and development.

Our Mission Statement
 The mission of University Neighborhood Middle School is to provide a nurturing educational experience for students of the Lower East Side, that helps them develop a positive self-image, achieve academic and social growth, and enables them to enter and succeed in an academically rigorous high school.

Our Vision
UNMS students will become independent and adaptive learners who make a meaningful impact on our increasingly global society and develop the skills and character to continually create and achieve meaningful goals.
