Niner University Elementary will develop lifelong learners and responsible, caring citizens through authentic and meaningful curriculum enacted through research-validated practices. We are a public school developed, supported and operated by education experts at UNC Charlotte, offering the opportunity for innovation and flexibility in our approach. The program is intended to support students from high needs, low-performing schools and improve educational outcomes while employing research-based teaching methods.
Niner University Elementary will also provide the Cato College of Education the opportunity to train and support the growth of teachers, counselors and school leaders through targeted clinicals and professional development. Together, we can inform educational practices by creating a model school that comprehensively addresses the needs of diverse students.
