University City Senior High School Reviews

Unlike a lot of other schools in America, University City High School is a progressive educational facility. There, you can see many different ethnicities, religions, and races interacting together. Even though UCity is a smaller scaled relatively poor school, all their movements to promote a healthy education in a country where differences are almost tabooed have proved to be effective. Does a ranking really matter when a school is unable to hint students about what society really is like? It is not about how many AP classes you can take, but how many people you can impact. That is why I love UCity.

The experience in UCHS have been great for my. School offers various programs in academics and career readiness. At the moment, I am attending the Early College Program in which I will be able to obtain my Associate Degree along with my H.S. Diploma. Some of my friends are attending the EMT program and upon graduation will be able to work an ambulance while some will be attending the BUD program which prepares them in construction.
UCHS is also known for its Arts & Performances. We just hosted the high school version of RENT which was super.
University City High School is actually a great school. Schools have there ups and downs, but Ucity students and faculty are family. We uplift eachother and we are very active in and around outback school . We have had great pep rallies for sports , protests in the community, plays, musicals, and games. My school is pretty amazing. Almost every one in our school either plays a sport at some point in the year or is envolved in clubs at school as well as in other activities. Ucity is also very diverse and we all get along like we should. I think that our teachers do an outstanding job preparing us for the future, our future. Our generation is the future and we hold success in the palm of our hands.
