The research done on student achievement indicates that careful selection of a course of study combined with participation in clubs, athletics, and/or other extra-curricular activities provides students with a balanced and productive high school experience.
Course selections should be made carefully and I encourage you to seek the guidance of your parents and your counselor. Each careful selection that you make should lead you closer to the attainment of your goals and should provide you with the foundation for future decisions about college, career and life. Our counseling staff is available to offer suggestions and to assist you to select the courses that meet the requirements for high school graduation as well as prepare you for your post high school world.
University City High School has an outstanding staff, an exceptional student body, a supportive parent community, a tradition of academic and extra-curricular excellence and a clean, well-maintained campus environment.
These features, combined with the quantity and quality of our course offerings, create an outstanding opportunity for a memorable and productive high school experience.
I encourage you to plan well, choose well, be involved and strive for excellence in all that you attempt during high school.
