Open Quote My daughter is a Junior at UHS. Her writing scores have improved and she ranked in the top 50000 of 1.5 million students who took the PSAT this year. AP US History is a phenomenal class and the rigor is evident in all of the core subjects. The faculty is generally exceptional and there is such talent from UHS past, present and future.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
