University High School Parent Association

The University High School Parent Association (PA) supports University High School’s philosophy, programs, and activities for the benefit of all students. The UHS PA facilitates communication and parent education, as well as encourages and coordinates volunteerism, and it fosters a spirit of inclusion, partnership, and cooperation among the entire school.

The PA has a board of directors comprised of parents who hold executive board positions and positions focused on specific functions or activities. Each year in May, a slate is presented to fill all positions, and elections are held at the May general meeting.

While called the Parent Association, all caregivers of students, including host families, are members of the University High School Parent Association.

For more information about the Parent Association, email parentassociation@universityhighschool.org, or use this form to volunteer!
