Unique Learning Opportunities

The Warner School of Education offers students the opportunity to apply the knowledge and theories gained through their academic experiences in unique learning programs and academic partnerships supporting the Rochester region.  
East High School Partnership
The University of Rochester has partnered with a large urban high school and has been involved in all aspects of a transformative collaboration designed to greatly improve the school and student achievement. It's an ambitious project, and many faculty and students in all of Warner's programs are deeply involved in research, assessment, curriculum development, social and emotional support, teaching and learning, and leadership support at East High School. This partnership offers diverse opportunities for volunteering and internships to Warner students in all programs. 

Horizons Program
This six-week summer enrichment program offers K-8 Rochester City School District students an informal context to engage in meaningful and authentic learning experiences. This program creates a unique opportunity for members of the Warner School to interact with students on the University campus in a non-traditional school setting.

Get Real! Science
Get Real! Science is the Warner School’s science teacher preparation program designed to engage students in real science through an inquiry-based approach. Based at East High, this program provides Warner students with exciting opportunities to teach and do research on science education.
Project READ
In partnership with John James Audubon School 33, Warner faculty and graduate students, who are training to become reading specialists, offer a comprehensive literacy program for at-risk students in early grades. Privately funded, the program includes direct-targeted tutoring services, in-class support and modeling of best practices for teachers, literacy professional development for teachers, and family literacy activities. Volunteers are welcome!
