Principal's Message

Meet the Principal of University Place Middle School

  • Hello! My name is Mr. Tom Danner and I am the principal of University Place Middle School. 

    We are one of the newest schools in the Tuscaloosa City School District. At University Place Middle School, we are committed to the philosophy which embraces the unique characteristics of the middle school student by recognizing and teaching to the various learning styles of our students, and providing our students with the opportunity to excel in academics, athletics, and fine arts. 

    We have an outstanding faculty, fantastic students, and wonderfully supportive parents who have helped us create a physically safe and emotionally secure learning environment for our students.  University Place Middle School strives to be a place that inspires enthusiasm, engages participation, and encourages learning.

    We are proud of our school and welcome you to not only visit us online, but to make an actual site visit as well.

    Tom Danner
