School Notes

  • University High School is unique among area high schools. Small by design, it provides students with a personalized experience and a community atmosphere that many larger schools cannot.
  • Parents love the emphasis on core values, faculty mentoring and a college counseling program that begins in the freshman year and walks families through every aspect of the process.
  • Students love the inclusive athletic program, the three-week January Term, and the one-to-one laptop program and wireless campus.

University High School is a rigorous high school that excels in personal attention to the students. Its distinctives include a January Term and Mentoring program...each of which are top-notch and set it apart. Athletics are no-cut, allowing students to try sports in which they might have interest, regardless of skill level. Its a place to grow.
