Welcome to the new school year! This year will be filled with a wide array of opportunities both in and out of the classroom. What makes life here so fun is that students are always eager to engage with each other and the surrounding community by starting and sustaining stimulating discussions in their school clubs, in student council, or via their community engagement projects.
We are excited to welcome our ninth-grade students onto campus. Each class brings their own personality and shapes the school in a unique way so we're eager to see how the Class of 2020 starts to leave its mark.
This fall will be filled with community events like plays, art shows, field hockey games, cross-country meets, and lively all-school meetings. We hope that you can find some time to join us and watch how students live out different parts of the UHS mission statement.
As always, students at UHS are encouraged to explore their interests in and out of the classroom. We believe that each student is a leader who has the potential to influence the school community. Whether you decide to join a club or participate in student government or work as a peer advisor, we believe that every student has a special perspective or skill to share with our school. A key part of being an engaged part of UHS is learning to stand up for ideas that you believe in while maintaining respect for people who do not share your same perspective. As leaders on the sports field, in all-school meetings, or on the stage, students are celebrated for their diverse talents and are encouraged to approach all aspects of their school life with curiosity and integrity.
