Amazing school for student to learn and grow socially, emotionally, and academically. One of the most dedicated schools for equipping students with the necessary skills for college. Go grit!
I love most of the teachers here! The teachers are well qualified and you truly learn from the best. It is true; the workload is intense. University High School is for students who aren’t lazy and are willing to put in the work. I did and everything has paid off! Thanks to the opportunities provided to me and the academic readiness, I will be attending a prestigious out of state college! I’m addition, the class size is small which allows you to know everyone. Everyone who goes here cares about school which is soo nice compared to other schools where students don’t listen and are always on their phones. This school is amazing, but it needs more funding. We need new buildings and money for our individual school needs.
I’m a freshman at UH and everything is going great! There is a lot of support and resources from our teachers and upperclassmen, they genuinely want the best for us. We have a great balance between close learning and a wide range of social opportunities.
