From University High School of Indiana

Imagine a place where teenagers are accepted and respected for who they are; where teachers are as friendly and approachable as they are qualified; where every student visitor is greeted with an enthusiastic round of applause.

Imagine a place where zero tolerance for bullying, hate speech, and exclusion is monitored just as much by students as it is by teachers. Imagine a place where students are not only preparing for and looking toward college — plus earning millions of dollars in merit scholarships — but are also living meaningful lives today.

This place is University High 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!
While there is no school nurse, there is an athletic trainer on campus most of the time who can do more than your traditional school nurse can. Mentors are always willing to help. There is little to no bullying in our community - that's one of the joys of the school's model. For the most part, people are incredibly kind! When there has been a bullying incident, one of the heads of school, along with some students on occasion, has taken it up in morning meeting, conducting an all school conversation over the issue. There has never been a violent conflict, though kids do gossip occasionally, especially about introverted, outspoken kids who are into anime/Donald Trump/My Little Pony. Otherwise, you're safe - and even those kids seem to find sanctuary. Lots of mutual trust and respect.
