What I love about UHS is the fact that I come to school every day glad to be surrounded by a genuinely nice and welcoming community. I am excited to go to classes, because everyone at UHS is intelligent and supportive, and it is fun to learn in an environment where you are working with your classmates towards a common goal, rather than working competitively against them. However, UHS is not all about academics: This year at school we have had an arcade, an ice skating rink, and a LOT of good food and candy. I encourage you to choose to come to UHS!

I love the sense of community at UHS. That was one of the most important factors in deciding which high school I should choose to go to. Especially at ASM when we have battle of the classes and there’s so much school spirit and everyone is so supportive of one another. I also love how everyone is so uplifting and encouraging. All of the teachers really care about you as a student and a person, and I definitely didn’t see that kind of dedication and support at any other school I had considered.

What I love about UHS is the freedom to decide how you learn. Whether in school or doing homework, we’re given iPads to help us decide how we want to both organize and complete our work. Additionally, in school we’re given extra time (or free periods) to work on homework, which is especially helpful for time management, and also allows for relaxation time after school so that you can feel like you have a balance between work and free time. Finally, the teachers are really accepting when you need help with an assignment, or simply want to meet to ask general questions about the class.

I can’t get enough of the atmosphere at UHS. Everyone always seems so happy and excited to be around each other, and that’s something that I never would have sensed in my middle school or anywhere else. Everyone is genuinely happy to come to school each day. That really keeps me going.

UHS is awesome. I highly recommend coming here. The close knit-ness of the class is one of my favorite things. It really helps you bond with all your classmates. Teachers here are super nice and super approachable. Never be afraid to ask for help–they’re always open to helping you. All in all, UHS has been great. It’s been enjoyable to come to school every morning.
