University High School ranks No. 22 in nation in annual report

University High School was ranked No. 17 in the nation and No. 2 in the state in the 2021 U.S. News & World Report analysis of the country's high schools.

“While having the successes of our UHS staff and students be recognized amongst the best high schools in the nation is exciting, we know these rankings only look at a small part of what schools do every day. The true excellence of UHS is in its kind, diverse, and future focused culture. I count it a blessing to be the principal of a school where we engage in diverse thought, celebrate each other, and never stop working to be our best.” Principal Joel Bacalia
