university is eager to meet you!
AT UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL, we are excited to welcome prospective students and families to our campus.
Thanks to safety precautions such as masks and physical distancing, University High School can accommodate a small number of in-person shadow guests each day. We can also schedule individual tours for prospective families during the school day. Of course, we are also available virtually. No matter how you come to us, we can’t wait to meet you and show you all University High School has to offer.

A message TO PROSPECTIVE FAMILIES IN THESE UNUSUAL TIMES
We offer our warmest tidings during this time of uncertainty as our communities work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
University High School began the 2020-21 school year in mid-August, utilizing a hybrid model (where two groups of students alternate weeks of on-campus learning and e-learning) in the interest of safety. Students on campus are required to wear masks, and there is greater accountability — though still flexibility — in where students eat, study, and learn. Much is different, but the heart of our school remains unchanged.
In our first days of classes, e-learning and on-campus students engaged each other via new technology installed this summer, and we all learned to navigate a new way of doing school. AP Literature students here and at home heard Mike Spiegel’s story-time-style reading of Where The Wild Things Are, and Stacey Summitt-Mann’s Environmental Science class toured campus to look at ways people have impacted our land over time, with virtual students traveling along on their laptops. Seminar periods and academic flex time are providing space for students and teachers to connect on-on-one. And thanks to three members of our Class of 2021, community meeting is back in the form of a daily live broadcast.
We look forward to introducing you to the vibrant University High School community in the method that works best for your family. While we can safely welcome prospective students and parents for campus tours and shadow visits during the school day, we also have virtual options for those who wish to see more from the safety of their homes.
We invite you to connect with us by requesting more information about University High School or by scheduling an upcoming visit. Please stay safe, and as always, do not hesitate to contact Nancy or Taylor with any questions or concerns.

My suggestion for prospective families would be to send your kids for a shadow visit (whether that be virtual or in person) to all of the potential schools you are considering — including public schools. You will know what school is right for your child and family.

One thing that stood out to us about University was the amount of time Nancy Webster spent with us and our son as we deliberated whether or not University was a good fit for him. She was detailed in her information gathering, extremely responsive, and took great care in getting to know our story, understanding our son’s needs, and providing an opportunity for Liam to explore and understand all that would be available to him at University.

University is an outstanding institution. We love that the school is small. Teachers, staff, and administrators are responsive and care about the students’ successes. J-Term is the icing on the cake.
