A True Community
Spend some time at University High School, and one word you’re bound to hear is “community.”
Our school has a daily community meeting, two Community Days each year, a common book we all read over the summer, a retreat that kicks off everyone’s freshman year, and lots of time just spent together as a community. We’re a community of learners, a community of athletes and artists, a community of people discovering who they are and figuring out what they love.
The best part of this — of being a high school that’s also a genuine community — is that no matter who you are and what’s important to you, you’re surrounded by people who accept you, who care about you, and who can make you the best version of yourself.
University High School gives you freedom. It wants to help you find out where you’re going and get you on your way. It tells you that you’re here for a reason, and that is because you have something to contribute to make the school better for everyone. University will celebrate your talents and encourage your ambitions. It will acknowledge your interests — be it composing, engineering, or even ghost hunting — and demand that you go explore them. Most importantly, it provides a comfortable place to learn and grow without all of the social stigmas that most high schools have.
