UHS Student Council Supports Forgotten Harvest

UHS Student Council took a field trip to Forgotten Harvest on May 24th. They were able to pack 960 emergency food boxes for families. They had a great time bonding with each other while helping out the community, and can't wait to return next year.

“It was rewarding to support families who may need some assistance. It also inspires me to see what else I can do,” explains virtual sophomore Aniya Hall.

  

UHS Hosts Decision Day

University High School supports students in planning their own futures. Decision Day is an opportunity for students to share their diverse career goals and plans with the entire student body. Students this year announced plans to attend barber and beautician schools, a variety of trade schools, and colleges and universities in programs including physical therapy, business, engineering, game design, marine biology, agriculture and many more. Counselors and advisors work closely with students in developing these plans and respect that some students feel the need to take a "gap year." These students are encouraged to make a plan following that gap year to continue their learning journey. Other students feel that they are ready to enter directly into the workforce, and this is a celebrated path as well.
