Personalized Learning

University Heights is a Custom 5 School--one of 5 personalized learning schools in Riverside Unified School District. UHMS teachers are committed to creating a student centered school where students have voice and choice in their learning. The five components of personalize learning are Flexible Environments, Learner Profiles, Personalized Learning Plans, Socially Engaged Contributors, and Competency Based Advancement. 

Personalized learning descriptionUni also has a schoolwide Positive  Behavior Intervention and Supports program that teaches students what our site expectations are and how they can meet those expectations each and every day. Teachers review these skills with students regularly and incorporate them into daily lessons. 

Students create learner profiles and personalized learning plans that allow them to reflect on their knowledge and learning so far in the year and set goals moving forward. The learner profile and personalized learning plan allow students to identify their strengths and areas of improvement. Students are encouraged to reflect on the ways they learn best and the ways they are best able to demonstrate their learning. This also helps them to select future strategies and tasks and topics they may choose to work on in different units. 

All 7th grade students participate in the Strengths Explorer program throughout the school year. Students take an assessment that helps them to identify their top three strengths and explore lessons that help them to better understand those strengths and how to use them to be successful.
