What is the typical class size?

What do the graduates from University Model schools say about how well high school prepared them for college?
Graduates from University Model schools report overwhelmingly that they were extremely well prepared for their freshman college classes. The schedule, work ethic, and necessary study skills were dynamics to which they were already accustomed. Secondly, they were prepared academically as the UMS course content was consistently more than adequate to prepare them for college. It also has not been uncommon for many UMS graduates to begin college with several college credits already on their transcript, having placed out of certain courses by virtue of their high school preparation.
Are colleges accepting students from University Model schools? What makes them attractive to colleges over other students?
Students from University Model schools have had no difficulty gaining entrance to colleges and universities nationwide. Academic staff stay informed of the current and projected entrance requirements of the major four year universities, allowing school officials to be sure that the University Model school course offerings are meeting or exceeding college entrance standards. In addition, University Model school students are attractive to colleges because of their strong work ethic, successful study habits, leadership skills, and character as demonstrated through various student activities – academic, athletic, artistic, and governmental.
