The Preuss School UCSD

Title

The Preuss School UCSD

Description

The Preuss School began when a group of UC San Diego faculty [planned] for the best way to increase the number of students in the university who [came] from low income or under-represented groups. Under the leadership of Cecil Lytle, provost of Thurgood Marshall College at the time, the group approached then UC San Diego Chancellor Robert Dynes and requested that a charter school for students in grades 6-12 be built and run by the university.

The Preuss School, which is chartered by the San Diego Unified School District and operated by UC San Diego, opened in 1999 in portable buildings on UC San Diego's Thurgood Marshall campus with 150 students in grades 6-8 (The History of Preuss).
