Summer School Is Approaching

With summer a few months away, it is time to start thinking about summer school.  As a reminder, summer school is a district wide program that will be located at Irvine High School this year.  Enrollment is handled through the district, not through Uni.  More information can be found in the links below.

University High School Adopts a 7 Period Day and Homeroom!

University High School votes to adopt a new bell schedule that would include a zero period and a homeroom embedded on Fridays.  The vote passed with overwhelming support with 79% of the faculty voting for a new bell schedule and almost 65% voting for a homeroom.

The new bell schedule will allow those students that currently have to come back to school in the evenings to take performing arts classes, like choir, orchestra, band and drama, the opportunity to take those classes during the regular school day.  In addition, students wishing to take courses that are of service to the school, like ASB, Journalism, and Yearbook, could experience those courses without having to sacrifice other electives, athletics, or required coursework. 

The homeroom is designed to provide another means by which faculty and staff could connect to students outside the context of the academic classroom.  The idea is that a student would have the same homeroom teacher for the entirety of their high school career.  Assistant Principal Pate states that “we understand this is not a perfect method to connect students and teachers, nor do we believe that connections can’t be ‘forced’, but for a large portion of our student body, this will be a great place to not only create connections with teachers, but fellow classmates that they would otherwise not have an opportunity to meet and get to know.  As a teacher, it is special to get to know your homeroom students and watch them cross the stage at graduation.  I am confident this will be a great thing for the culture at University High School.”

Trojan Thursday - April 10th

An update on our athletic fundraising campaignchinese pta

Last week we launched a fundraising campaign to try to raise funds to make some improvements to our outdated gym. We had a great response from the UNI community. The response shows how necessary these improvements are. If you would like to make a donation please drop off your check to the athletic office. All checks should be made out to UHS. You can also contact Kevin McCaffrey at if you need any additional information.

We want to send a special THANK YOU to the Chinese PTA who has donated over $4,000 towards this project.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to this project!

With Spring Break next week there will be no Trojan Thursday. Trojan Thursday will be back on April 24th.
