University Neighborhood High School Reviews

My experience with University Neighborhood High School was having great counselors. Having someone who you can reach out to when you have questions or just need to talk to
Someone. Being acceptable for who you are and being in a safe zone, the counselors check up with you. Asking for help if you want to know how your grades are or if you want to check a recent grade in the past or any credits missing. They listen and help you out directly to your problem and also create an open space for students to come in and feel free to discuss on goals you want to do for yourself. I would ask to change the clubs time since some students have class afterschool and can’t always participate. Lots of students would want to join a sport or club but can’t since they are busy with academic studies, which is beneficial but sometimes students are overwhelmed and would love to attend something they enjoy. Expanding time for clubs would make things more balance for students.

Even though this school is small, it has a lot of opportunities. The colleges classes are great to get a head start before we go to college. This school is also really dedicated to lead their students to success. Teacher are always there to help if you need anything, even if its not school related. We have many clubs and activities such as dance team, basketball team, handball, debate club, student government, art club, music club, etc. The only thing that would probably need change is the size of the school, its really small and we have a lot of new students which makes it even crowded.
Overall my high school experience at the University Neighborhood High School can be described as decent. Considering that this school is small, it is really welcoming and non over whelming. It you want your child to have more 101 and intimate relationships with their peers and students this is the place to be. One thing I love about this school is that they offer so many great programs, including Deloitte Academy. One thing I would change about this school is the amount of AP courses offered here, they only have one AP class here and I wish there were more.
