University High School of Indiana Reviews

UHS is an outstanding school for both academically laser-focused kids and those who want to try many different things, including sports with its no-cut policy. For teens, the students are remarkably kind and non-judgmental embracing and encouraging one another to be "their best self." Our daughter would have excelled at a large public school, but would never have been a cheerleader or had a role in every play for four years while also taking challenging AP classes. UHS is a great school for developing thoughtful, well-rounded, renaissance kids comfortable with exploring new things. As a small school, however, be sure the subjects and activities your kid loves most are available as it can't offer the breadth (e.g., foreign languages, sports) or depth (e.g., art, music) of choices you might find at a large, public school.

We have been only thrilled with our experience at University! The faculty rival their collegiate counterparts and care for the students to boot. The January Term experience is one-of-a-kind at the high school level, and offers experiences that can't be taught in a traditional classroom. We would highly recommend University to anyone looking for their students to be challenged while cared for!
Most of the teachers are phenomenal - individualized, discussion based, progressive. The English teachers work hard to include intersectional texts. Some of my favorite books from the last four years have been:

-The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

-Man Alive by Thomas Page McBee

-The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce

-The Color Purple by Alice Walker

-The Tempest by William Shakespeare

-The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

-Fun Home by Alison Bechdel

-Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

-The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemmingway

-Animal Farm by George Orwell

Unintentionally, many otherwise "banned" books are celebrated at University, and while the school has its fair share of sophisticated and dry novels (See: The Illiad, All Quiet on the Western Front, Homage to Catalonia, Hamlet, etc), the story itself is definitely celebrated, and all perspectives are imperative.

The history teachers run hot and cold - they're the coolest crew at the school, but many come from non-educational backgrounds, which can make class more passive than engaging. Still, they do a stellar job of connecting past events to current life, and use tons of primary sources and recent articles to round out a student's experience.

Science and math are sub par in the lower levels, but become quite hands on and challenging for upperclassmen!

Great communicators - they truly care about their school!
