university is eager to meet you!
AT UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL, we have returned to campus with a hybrid schedule for fall 2020 and are thrilled to be together again.
Thanks to new safety precautions such as masks and physical distancing, University High School is able to welcome prospective students and families to campus for tours and shadow visits. Of course, we are also available virtually as well. 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.

WE FELT LIKE OUR SON WOULD BE OKAY at the public high school, but we wanted more for him than just getting through his high school experience. We wanted him to thrive, to reach his potential, and to be a more well-rounded individual. He is already making great strides at University!

THIS IS A SPECIAL PLACE. The faculty and staff truly care about their mission and develop real relationships with students. It may not be the right fit for every student, but if it is the right fit, it is absolutely worth the investment. University High School has provided my students with the best possible environment to grow as a learner and an individual.
