University Neighborhood High School Reviews

The community in this school is very compassionate and the teachers are always there to help. It is a very diverse community where students and teachers treat one another with respect. UNHS is a school that helps its student succeed with the help of the school counselor. There are always improvements and opportunities available for the students. However, University Neighborhood High School could improve in the way they teach. The teachers are passionate but the tools they use are not very easy to grasp the student's attention.

Although this school is quite the distance from where I live, it's worth the travel because this school is really amazing in the way that the staff, teachers, and principal make everyone feel welcome and safe. The diversity in this school is definitely astonishing. Students vary from all different races, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, age, and even sexual orientation yet everyone is still treated equally which I personally think is the best aspect of the school. The opportunities that the school provides to help the transition into college easier such as college readiness programs, College Now courses, college trips are very beneficial because there's so much support given to us. I really don't think the school has to change at all but if I could improve one thing, it would be the number of sports that are provided because there isn't a lot and I think everyone would enjoy it if they had more options to choose from.
This school is very social-friendly. There were a lot of good clubs I and participated in many of them such as chess, badminton, Chinese, and science. After school and Saturdays, I tutored the underclassman that was having trouble with math and science. I graduated top 10 in my school and got into one of my dream schools. One thing I would like to change in this school is adding more AP classes.
