Read what parents are saying about University High School
Uni is not well rounded, stressing academics 100% and completely ignoring sports, arts, and social development. Many students are elitist snobs who bully underachievers. Students with learning differences get no services and are pressured to conform to the curriculum. As a former student I do not recommend this school unless you enjoy overemphasized academics, bullying, and conformity.

Academics are highly pushed. Sports are pushed aside. (Unless it’s tennis, or golf). If you’re not already smart then you have to try harder. Great school but not a fair one.

As most people say at UNI, "this school is the best school in the worst way". This school is a 10/10 school, its academic part is very strong and vigorous, making it one of the best schools. However, this school is horrible in its effect emotionally on most students. Most students (other than a few) suffer from depression, stress, bullying, and etc. Making friends at this school is also very hard (most people stick with friends they made back in elementary), so if you transfer in, I am sorry. To sum it up, this school is amazing academically (competitive), but emotionally scarring too.

I had a phenomenal experience in my 4 years at University High, ultimately getting into Stanford as a President's scholar along with 9 of my classmates. The student body was filled with some of the smartest, most dedicated people I know who I am still close with to this day. The teachers were always top-notch, noble, and loved what they did. Could not have had a better experience and would highly recommend it.
