I like the people, sports opportunities and classes that they offer. Many of them are different than those offered by other schools. I feel like like they do a good job of preparing us for our future.

If I could change anything about my school it would be to have more diversity!
University Schools has been an experience that has been very up and down when it comes to being enjoyable, stressful, intense, and the feeling of student life. Academically, this school has been very challenging, but its been worth while because it helps to prepare me for experiences that I will have in college or that I've already had in the work force. There is also an abundance of options for getting involved in the school, from class and executive boards to nationally recognized associations to local clubs and everywhere in-between. The only glaring things that are a blemish on the school are the student body's unwillingness to be inclusive at times and the somewhat "cliquish" feel, as well as the lack of resources to help students who feel overwhelmed about the intense graduation requirements.
