Founded in 2004, The Urban Assembly Media High School is a small college preparatory high school that uses media as a way of engaging students and making their learning relevant to their lives. Through their interdisciplinary coursework and media studies, students develop self-reflective practices and analytical skills necessary for future success in college and beyond.

Our Vision:

  • UAM believes that those doing the talking are doing the learning.
  • UAM believes that students learn best when they make connections between subject areas and their own lives.
  • UAM believes that it is important to celebrate the culmination of learning and understanding.
  • UAM believes that the whole student must be taken into account.



  • Grade Range: 9-12
  • District: 3
  • Principal: Cordelia Veve
