University City High School has incredible honors programs with intensive teachers such as Ms. Halter. Students are encouraged to excel in academics and extra curricular activities. Some of the administration aren't very supportive but others are satisfactory. I would like to see the student's attitude's change. Many students spread drama, tear each other down, and don't create a sense of community. I would also like to see school spirit boosted. Lastly, I would like to see more funding towards the arts and programs other than sports. Teachers and students need much better relationships and respect. Regular classes lack discipline unlike honors courses.

My experience was good. I found support doing all the activities I thought will be good not just for me but for my classmates. When I decided to have a school walk out, not just the building Principal but the Superintendent along with Communications helped us accomplished our goal. Not just we walked out of the building for an hour but we also were in the news and the community was able to participate.
My high school experience was really fun. They offer great classes and programs where anybody could find something that interests them. The students are respectful, hardworking, and overall awesome. A lot of students are into school spirit; it is reflected during spirit week and during sports games. School dances may be in the gym but they are fun. Administration is alright, it sucked for the most part. Mr.P, vice principal, was the best administration staff by FAR and will be missed as he has moved onto better things. If you want to prepare for college, I advise you get involved with CalSOAP or other programs specifically targeted for your goals as the counselors don't do much. You are bound to make amazing friends. Parties held by UC are pretty good too.
