This fact sheet bulletin describes the Urban Day School (UDS) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The school contains grades pre-kindergarten through 8, and its student body is drawn from lower income caucasian, Negro and Puerto Rican families. The UDS is a private school, without church affiliation, although it is staffed in part by Dominican Sisters. It has an accredited Montessori preschool, ungraded primary classes in grades 1 to 4, and departmental classes in grades 5 to 8. The school offers speech therapy, remedial reading, mathematics, psychological counseling, and a cultural enrichment program. Particular stress is placed on parent involvement, and no child is admitted unless his parents "pledge" to become involved in his education. Pupil achievement data and budget figures are also included. (KG)
