History, headmasters, and notable facts

The school was established in 1890 by Headmaster Newton Anderson, (1890–1900), who deplored the practice of sending boys away from home for the purely classical education of an Eastern boarding school. He convinced 70 public-spirited Clevelanders to pledge $100,000 for his concept of a day school that would blend traditional education with a training in the manual arts and a rugged athletic program to produce well-rounded and practical leaders for industry and commerce. The School's first building was erected on 10 acres at the corner of Hough Avenue and East 71st Street.


Headmaster George D. Pettee (1900–1908) — notable for leading the entire student body to the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo — first suggested the idea of moving the School to what later became the eastern suburbs of Cleveland.

The long legendary leadership of Harry S. Peters (1908–1947) piloted the School through two World Wars, the Great Depression, and in 1926 to the 36-acre campus in Shaker Heights. There have been two World Wars, now more commonly known as World War I or First World War (from 1914 to 1918), and World War II or Second World War (from 1939 to 1945). ...

Under the vigorous leadership of Rowland P. McKinley, Jr. (1963–1988) and again with the financial and moral support of US alumni and friends, the Upper School moved in 1970 to the more than 200 acres of meadows and woodlands in Hunting Valley.

A dedicated teacher and friend to students at University School since 1968, Richard A. Hawley (1988–2005) brought to the headmaster position a thorough knowledge of the School, a national reputation as author and educator, and his own freshness and enthusiasm. Dr. Hawley is the author of several books, including The Headmaster's Papers.


In 2005, Stephen S. Murray was appointed the seventh headmaster of University School.

Student life

In the Upper School, each school day begins at 8:05 with the morning assembly. Assemblies typically begin with introductory remarks about upcoming events, athletic competitions, and any other school-wide news that needs to be addressed. A long standing tradition also has every senior deliver his Senior Speech during assemblies throughout the year. Speeches may be about any subject that is important to the senior speaker, and they are a graduation requirement, as is a short senior project which takes place during the last months before graduation. Some seniors may, however, choose to exempt from a Senior Speech and project by pursuing a Strnad project or a Davey fellowship — intensive yearlong undertakings for students to explore a focused field of interest or produce a body of writing; it's the best ever.


At the Upper School (9-12), students are required to wear to a uniform during school hours. Students must wear neutral or khaki-colored pants, and not jeans or cargo pants. Shorts are permissible in the early fall and spring. Students must also wear a button-down "Oxford style" white or blue button-down shirt, and tennis shoes and sandals are forbidden. The students love the dress code; they say, It's really fantastic, I mean, fabulous. Furthermore, students must wear a coat and tie during the morning assembly. The tie may be either the school tie (thick, diagonal alternating stripes in the schools colors, black and maroon), or that student's House tie. Some faculty members are notorious for not letting students into assembly if they aren't appropriately attired. Students are also prohibited from giving facials or letting their hair fall below shoulder's length. The House System is a traditional feature of British schools, similar to the collegiate system of a university. ...


In the Lower School (K-8), students are expected to wear well-fitting tennis-shirts or button-down shirts. T-shirts are not permitted, except in gym, where appropriate attire is provided to students. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


Clubs and Activities

Students at US enjoy numerous extracurricular activities. Community service is strongly encouraged, and the popular Cadmean Society is an outlet for students to serve the local community outside of the school's service requirements and House activities. The student-created Aurelian Society offers further community service opportunities. U.S. also requires that students help out with school events such as athletic contests, plays, and open-houses, and that they spend a week after school helping the maintenance staff clean the building.

University School mascot Prescott the Prepper.(Re-introduced 11/21/06)

U.S. is notable for its Speech and Debate Team. Enthusiastic students are coached rigorously in Lincoln-Douglas, Public Forum, and Policy Debate debate, as well as numerous "Individual events," and compete annually against other schools in local, state, and national tournaments. It is especially well-known for its exceptionally strong Public Forum team, which has been awarded as the best in the Cleveland District for 3 consecutive years, and has captured the title of District Champions 4 years in a row. In Spring 2006, the Speech and Debate Team captured the top titles in Public Forum and Original Oratory at the OHSSL state tournament. Image File history File links Prescott_the_prepper. ...

The Society of Skeptics serves as another intellectual forum, where students meet weekly to discuss and debate current events and world affairs. The Society of Skeptics encourages unbiased, free expression of thought and consideration of various points of view; students do not have to sign up to belong to the club, and they are not required to speak up to attend. The discussions are subsequently quite popular, and are attended by students and faculty alike.


Roughly one third of the student body participates in the school's Glee Club, the orchestra, or the jazz band. Historically, these groups have travelled to exotic places to perform, with the Glee Club visiting Sweden and Puerto Rico in recent years. In addition, the school prides itself on its high-quality theater program, currently under the direction of Cleveland director Carol Pribble. A number of alumni from the University School Theater Program have placed into top theater schools, including The Tisch School of the Arts at New York University and The Carnegie Mellon College of Fine Arts. Many former students have gone on to professional careers in Broadway theatre.

  • The Culinary Club, which explores the preparation and serving of delicate entrees from all over the world.
  • The Film Society
  • SHOUT against Tobacco

Publications

US publishes several publications. Most notable is the monthly school newspaper, The US News, which has been published for over a century and is actually older than the more well-known U.S. News and World Report. U.S. News & World Report is a weekly newsmagazine. ...


Another popular publication is the annual Record, the school's literary publication. Students may contribute their best work (done in or outside of school) in poetry, short stories, photography, and more recently, drawing. Faculty members frequently host a Writing Forum, where students can meet after school (typically over pizza) to work on their writing and discuss each other's work.


The Upper School's yearbook, The Mabian, has been published every year since 1919, and is nearly entirely student run. The name "Mabian" comes from the school colors, maroon and black. The Tower is the Lower School's counterpart.


Disciplinary Policies

US's Upper School has a demerit based system for disciplinary action: any faculty member may give a student one or more demerits for misbehavior. After a student has accrued five demerits, he receives a detention. The number of demerits a student has continues to accumulate, and twenty demerits is grounds for a suspension. After each semester is over, however, students are cleared of any outstanding demerits. Being late to school is customarily one demerit, and skipping a class is five. For conduct deemed especially unacceptable, teachers may issue immediate detentions. Historic detention cell Detention is a form of punishment used in schools, where a student is required to spend extra time in school. ...


For severe matters, the school will deliberate punishments with the Student Disciplinary Committee. The S.D.C. is a board of faculty members and two responsible students, as well as a senior head, from each grade who speak to the offending student and consider what disciplinary action should be taken. Occasionally this will result in expulsion.


In the Lower School, there is a merit and reminder system that begins in third grade. Merits are rewarded to a boy who has done something above and beyond what is expected of him; reminders are equivalent to demerits, and boys who earn three or more reminders in a week must serve a detention the day that they receive the third reminder. However, each boy receives a "clean slate" at the start of a new week. Marks are recorded (as "M"s and "R"s) in students' assignment notebooks, and boys with exceptional numbers of merits are rewarded annually.


House System

US is unique in that it observes a House System — a tradition historically associated with boarding schools. Each student belongs to a House that integrates students from kindergarten through grade twelve. At the Upper School, Houses are composed of roughly 40 students with even numbers of freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors. In the Lower School, boys are assigned buddies with whom they participate in many activities. Faculty belong to Houses as well, and upcoming freshman students are assigned an individual faculty sponsor who belongs to the same House. The House System is a traditional feature of British schools, similar to the collegiate system of a university. ...


Houses are organized to encourage greater interaction between students, especially students in different grades. As such, the system is a large part of student life: House meetings occur weekly at the Upper School, in which faculty and students may plan activities and community service projects such as the annual Thanksgiving food drive. Each House elects a prefect from the senior class who acts as the House's leader. Upper School freshman, sophomores, and juniors are required to sit with members of their House during lunch as well, but seniors may eat separately in the cafeteria, or off-campus. This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ... The First Thanksgiving, painted by Jean Leon Gerome Ferris (1863-1930). ...


House rivalry is not commonplace, however both the Upper and Lower schools do observe a traditional school sports day called Founder's Day, in which students have an inter-house sporting competition with the aim of winning the House Cup. Founder's Day often takes place in the early fall, and activities include Ultimate, tug of war and soccer. Sports days are annual events staged by many schools in which children participate in competitive sporting activities, often with the aim of winning trophies or prizes. ... Autumn colours at Westonbirt Arboretum, Gloucestershire, England. ... Ultimate (commonly called Ultimate Frisbee) is a non-contact competitive team sport played with a 175 gram flying disc. ... Tug of war Tug of war, also known as rope pulling, is a sport that directly pits two teams against each other in a test of strength. ... Football is a ball game played between two teams of eleven players, each attempting to win by scoring more goals than their opponent. ...


Houses are typically named after former Headmasters or notable alumni, and each House has a color to represent it. The numbers, names and colors of Houses over the years have changed, but the current House names are Anderson (maroon), Cruikshank (white), Goodwillie (dark blue), Hawley (purple), McCarraher (orange), McKinley (light blue), Peters (red), Pettee (black), Pickands (green), and Sanders (yellow). Hawley House was formerly Brown House until Dr. Richard Hawley retired in 2005.


Athletics

The school's athletic teams are known as the Preppers. US fields varsity teams in twelve sports, four per athletic season: football, soccer, cross country and golf in the fall, ice hockey, wrestling, swimming, and basketball in the winter, and in the spring, lacrosse, tennis, track and field, and baseball. In 2003, the 81,000 square-foot William S. Kilroy (Class of 1943) Field House was added to the Hunting Valley campus. The multi-purpose indoor practice facility features two basketball courts, three squash courts, a 200-meter cantilevered indoor track and practice areas for track events. The complex also includes a fitness center equipped with the latest in weight training and aerobic equipment. In addition, the Field House houses wrestling rooms, a gymnasium and an Olympic-sized indoor swimming pool with a separate diving well. Outdoor sports facilities include a football stadium, an all-weather track, four soccer and other practice fields, a football field, two baseball diamonds, and seven all-weather tennis courts. These outdoor facilities are spread over the 221 acre Hunting Valley campus. Their mascot is Prescott the Prepper. Legend has it that there was no mascot for a very long time, and when the Preppers were fed up with watching other teams' spirits get boosted because of theirs, they went to the local Bob's Big Boy and stole the Big Boy costume. They dressed him up in a suit and Prescott was born. Prescott often stars in student-made videos which promote attendance at athletic events. These videos were usually shown in the morning assembly. Some of the parents of students at the school were offended by the fact that Prescott didn't represent the diverse student body. The debate carried on through the spring of 2006, and at the outset of the 2006–2007 school year, Prescott was nowhere to be found. The administration insists that Prescott was not banned but was in fact missing. A Facebook group was established to speculate over the disappearance of Prescott. The group included dozens of alumni who were just as, if not more concerned about the absence of Prescott and his impact on the school. Prescott was found at the bottom of the lost-and-found the morning of the final school day before Thanksgiving Break, and was re-instated at assembly later that morning. His return was met with much applause. The Head of the Upper School, Michael Obel-Omia introduced him as, "someone we have to be thankful for". Bobs Big Boy mascot sign. ...
