My daughter started at University when we moved in the middle of her high school experience. The school faculty and staff couldn't have been more helpful through that transition; their caring and commitment continues to this day, as she prepares college applications. I've worked in education a long time and recognize quality when I see it. Excellent academics, varied extracurriculars, an accepting and inclusive spirit, and teachers' investment in student success...what more could you want?

Our daughter attended UHS and now is preparing to graduate from one of the best liberal arts colleges in the country. We are sure that University s preparation is what allowed that to happen. We are very fortunate that our daughter is both sociable and smart. She likely would have done fine at any high school. But the difference is huge between doing fine and, trite as it may sound, reaching one s potential. She grew enormously in her four years at Uni, having been challenged by her teachers and invigorated by her schoolmates. Her college adviser took a keen interest in her that made all the difference. And she was tremendously inspired by her mentor, with whom she developed a rewarding relationship that we are sure will make a permanent difference in her life. We will always be indebted to the wonderful people at UHS.

Our son went to University High School after attending a very small school. He was shocked at how hard UHS was compared to his old school. Every teacher expects near perfect work. This holding the students to a higher standard will pay off when he attends college. Would you rather learn how to do college level work before or after you start college? The mentor program is a great asset, if a student doesn't click with their mentor they can ask to change. Our sons mentor has been great. We saw a review here saying they had problems with their mentor and left the school. We wonder why they never asked for a change???? We can see how there has been some bad reviews, you can't please everyone all the time. If you are considering UHS just go visit and do a shadow day with a student. That's the only way you'll know for sure. Unlike a public school there's no social clicks or groups of different types of kids. Everyone mixes and mingles. The focus is on academics not what "CLASS" of citizen you are. No one here cares what you wear to school or what sport you play. Oh and no bullies either. As a student you can't walk these halls without being asked how you are doing 20 times a day.

It is mediocre at best. When people pay for a private education they deserve much much more.

This is an excellent school. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something smaller. We (parents) are so tired of these huge schools. The public schools have something for the above average and the below average, but the ones in the middle get lost. University challenges all students. They have a great teacher mentor program. They also have a program that helps them choose the college that's right for them. My son loved it and calls all the students, 'part of his family'.

Absolutely fabulous! I haven't met a kid in the school who does not love this school. The academics are exceptional, teachers really know their subjects and enjoy teaching, plus the mentors go the second mile to cultivate each student's personal education. The school community is built on trust and personal responsibility. Life changing! Wish I'd gone to school here!
