University High School is the best school.. you will see students coming from totally different countries coming to this school. Everyone in the school is very nice, warm and most welcoming.. This staff and administration is great.. You will feel very safe in this school.. All the AP teachers are very devoted to the students... I have been going to uni for almost 3 years and i think IT IS THE BEST SCHOOL! :)


Posted December 5, 2013

The students and staff are warm, welcoming, and willing to work. There is a clear sense of school pride and I feel lucky to be a part of the supportive staff. The school also has myriad programs for kids centered around all types of interests- biking, food, athletics, peer mediation, GSA, drumline, etc. If I were half my age, I'd want to go there!

I am a current senior at University High School and can say that I do not regret coming here at all. I have achieved a 4.3 GPA since being here and have had the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of AP courses to enrich my education. The teachers are fantastic and there are an abundant amount of opportunities for kids to pursue their passion, from varsity sports and music to over thirty different clubs. Kids who work hard here go to top schools such as Harvard, Yale, JHU, UCLA, and UC Berkeley so going to Uni is a great option for kids who want to excel in academics.


Posted June 1, 2013

I am a current student at University High School. My current GPA is 3.8. I can honestly say this school is the worst experience of my life. I have been at University High School for just one year and myself and near all the students feel that transferring is the best option for us. I admit the sports and Uni is nice as well as the campus, but the teachers lack the ability to actually teach and the administrators simply dont care. This school is not a good choice and I highly advise against going. -Current Student

Uni is quite possibly THE greatest school in all of LAUSD. The culture and the diversity is amazing. The students are all hard working, motivated, and all in all, simply wonderful. The teachers are all amazing and super understanding.They provide a safe campus for all and try their best to help every student reach their full potential. At Uni, you create bonds with people you never thought you'd befriend. Walking into the school, you might be alarmed at how big the school is. But once you're there for a couple of days, you become engaged in the greatness of the school. It offers challenging courses for students who want to achieve a higher education, and the majority of the school goes on to major universities such as Harvard, Princeton, Brown, all UC's and more. There are so many extracurriculars for students to get involved in. It's a very open minded school and everyone accepts everyone. It is the typical American high school, but not your average one. I can gladly say that in my 4 years at Uni High, not once did I complain about going to school. I guarantee you will love this school more than anything and you'll never want to leave because of the life long friends you will make

UNI is without a doubt the gem of the westside public schools. It offers a comprehensive academic program, with academic, extracurricular, and athletic programs available for all types of students. Our School for Advanced Studies and AVID College Prep programs are hugely successful. Our faculty is a nice blend of veteran educators and younger teachers who regularly stay beyond traditional school hours to meet the needs of our student population. We serve approximately 2,000 ethnically diverse students from all neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Because of our park like campus grounds, UNI is regularly featured in numerous television series, commercials, music videos, and major motion pictures. We are widely known to be the safest campus in LAUSD. In addition, our athletics programs are top notch. We have a state-of the-art brand new indoor gymnasium, and outdoor PE complex. Currently, the Westside YMCA is constructing a joint use facility on our property for student, faculty, and community usage. One visit to our campus and you'll be sold.

An incredible shhool with a beautiful campus and nice students. SAS program is an great opportunity to get ahead. You will not regret going here!


Posted July 5, 2011

University High is a transcendent high school, I would not trade it for any other. MOST of the teachers are great! The work is challenging and there is no slacking allowed. I would prefer the SAS/ Honors program if attending. Take as many AP classes as you can.. The teachers that teach the courses are great! I am going into the 11th grade and I cannot wait for the 2 years I will spend there.

This is a great school!!! Great students, and teacher are amazing! Uni is going straight up the ladder with improvements every year.

I attended University High School some years ago, and have since graduated from an accredited university. The teachers at Uni are absolutely amazing, they really prepared me for college. Their SAS program is terrific as well. I take off two stars because I would probably not send my children here, unless the entire administration (principal, dean, etc.) are replaced. They have very little understanding of leadership and respect for the student body. The best teachers/the worst administration!


Posted February 7, 2009

Quite frankly, there are many quality teachers in this school. The new principal is clearly steering students and staff in a new direction that not only leads to success with testing but with learning in post-secondary institutions.


Posted January 7, 2009

Come visit us! I've been teaching at Uni for six years. Test scores are one thing but going into the classrooms for visits is another. I encourage all parents and community members to come to Uni and see the rigorous instruction that occurs - every day. Unless you've see a teacher in action, you don't know much about a school. Best of luck in finding the right match for you and your family!

The SAS program, or honor classes at this school is very diverse and challenging. Not only are the classes fulfilling, my daughter says that the students at this school are very accepting and there's a lot of healthful competition between the rival school, Palisades HS.

Posted June 7, 2008

Not only does Univeristy HS offer a variety of challenging honor (SAS program) and AP classes, my daughter (freshman) is involved in several clubs and sport teams offered at this school. I highly recommend the SAS program at this school because the students there are very diverse and there's a lot of competition between the rival school, Palisades HS.

Posted June 7, 2008

As a student at University HS, I really find the experience here at Uni to be enriching; all the teachers and students are very accepting and friendly. I'm in SAS so the classes are more rigorous and the teachers push you a lot. Plus, it's a really safe school, we barely have any fights here, probably because it's a really diverse school.

University High School has a very unique history, with several graduates returning to teach, and many teachers pursuing their education to achieve a masters degrees or higher says a lot about the quality staff at University High School. Students have many opportunities for leadership. The diversity of clubs and extra curricular activities that students can take part in give students balance. Coaches here understand that need and work with students so they can do all the things that they are interested in. Students want to feel safe as much as the administration wants to keep the school safe, so they work together to try to handle confrontations before they get out of hand. An example of this is the peer mediation class that teaches students how to help other students with their personal issues. Parent involvement is getting better. The school website and teacher emails should help facilitate better communication.

I'M NOT A PARENT- FORMER STUDENT: When I attended University High School, I felt the school was a very good one. Other than that, and the fact that we aren't that great in sports, University fairs well amongst Senior High Schools in the region. I graduated and am currently in college...I made it! and I have a 3.6 GPA as of today. There were some great teachers there...and some I would say had no business teaching there.

The school location is great, kind of hidden away. The academics are good but I was a little disappointed when my daughter couldn't get the help she needed when she struggled with geometry. Its a shame the test scores went down which made the school ineligible to receive incoming bussed students. The college prep AVID program is fantastic. I wish they had AVID when I was in high school. As for the social atmosphere, my daughter's number of friends was somewhat limited because she wasn't a nerd, or into goth/punk-rock, gangs or being fake. She couldn't wait for the school year to be over so she could transfer to another school. But overall, it was a good learning experience for her.

My senior is well-prepared for college. I believe the theater arts department is one of the best in the district, if not the best! The amount of support provided to parents for students who need more help is lacking. There is very little communication between teachers and parents, which is the key to student success!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
