The annual UHS Club Fair was held this past Friday, September 23, with more than 50 clubs—53 to be exact—representing our students' diverse range of interests and identities.
UHS English instructor Joanna Ro's former student, Devi Lockwood, recently stopped by UHS to share her experiences of traveling around the world (including Fiji, Cambodia, and Qatar) to listen, learn, and write about environmental issues.
Photographer Liz Hickok will open the 2016–17 Professional Artist Series at University High School with Keeping it sort of real, which will run from September 23 through October 28 in the Jackson Street Gallery.
UHS's Paul Goode Field is beginning to take shape, revealing the terrific facility that our teams--as well as community youth sports participants--will enjoy.
The new Idea Lab is on schedule for fall 2016 opening, allowing UHS to increase the role of fabrication and design thinking throughout the program.
Summerbridge turned 39 this year but there's no sign of slowing down! The classrooms, labs, hallways, and theater at UHS are bubbling over with Summerbridge Spirit.
Barely a week after graduation, the halls of UHS were filled again with the voices of teachers. This time, however, teachers are students! Summerbridge has kicked off a week long professional development and orientation for its summer staff, including teaching fellows and instructional coaches, while down on South Campus the language department is hosting Bay Area Spanish teachers for a two-day class.
The Class of 2016 and the entire University High School community celebrated commencement on June 6, 2016, at Davies Symphony Hall. Despite its grand location, the event remains intimate, emotional, irreverent and very "UHS." This particular UHS class—characterized by its elected student and faculty speakers as ebullient, spirited, caring, compassionate, and witty—has also been a force on the stage, the playing fields, and in the classroom.
