Our NSU Connection
As a division of Nova Southeastern University, NSU University School is the only independent school in South Florida that is part of a major university. This relationship provides our students with a host of unique resources and opportunities. NSU faculty judge the Lower School science fair. Middle School students prepare for mock trial competitions with help from NSU's Shepard Broad College of Law. NSU University School juniors and seniors even have the unique opportunity to conduct research with NSU professors as part of the Capstone Project. These projects range from studying marketing techniques with the chair of the Marketing Department at NSU's Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship to collecting tissue samples for professors from the College of Dental Medicine.
NSU University School students also benefit from the NSU connection through their teachers. In addition to teaching other teachers as faculty members in NSU's Abraham S. Fischler College of Education, NSU University School teachers are able to pursue advanced degrees. As a result, NSU University School has a high percentage of faculty with doctorate degrees.
