    "University High School is a changed school. There's more support from teachers. The students look forward to classes and enjoy after school activities."

    "I used to attend University high school and it is one of the worst schools I have ever been to,and I am so happy that I do not attend there anymore.Not only is this school behind on educational standards but it's a school which makes you feel as if it's not even worth coming.First of all why should it be so hard to get in the school when school starts there is a long line of students trying to get in!There is not enough people caring at that school for it to be successful."

    "As a profesional with decades of experience, I'd have to say it doesn't get much worse than University High. A large of the problem seems to be in the inability and/or unwillingness of administration to put an end to the behavioral circus. Disrespect for teachers, property serve to devalue the importance learning. IPods, cell phones,dancing,defiant giggling and routine fights fill much of the schedule. Add to this the fact that the security team is largely for show and often fails to do their part to make student truly accountable for horrendous behavior. In a sense, the administration works with students to insure no one wins and that they fail together."

    "How bad is bad when your son is enrolled at the school, plays on the varsity team and the administrative staff has no idea of his whereabouts or even if he is a member of the student body. This school lacks professionalism and integrity. No wonder the students do what they want and the parents want nothing to do with University City. They have no clue about what is going on there or who is in charge for the day and people want to blame parents and students. It all starts from the top, if the school cares, parents will care, and when the parents care the students will follow."

    "Its a shame that parents do not participate in anything. They have great new teachers this year and the school is doing their best. Parents need to stop complaining and step up."
