The entrance to Sunbright School. On the glass doors are blue and yellow window decals that say, "Welcome," with illustrations of tigers flanking the door. On the wall beside the entrance is a sign that says, "Sunbright: A University Assisted School. The University of Tennessee System."

Tthe University-Assisted Community Schools (UACS) recently added Sunbright School to their program. Sunbright School, located in a town by the same name, is part of Morgan County Schools. It serves approximately 530 students in PreK-12th grade.

Through UACS —which is housed within the College of Education, Health & Human Sciences— UT students, faculty, and staff provide school children academic support services, physical education, music, and art programs after regular school hours. With these programs, UACS is able to enhance the interpersonal skills, critical-thinking skills, and academic success of participating children.
