School History

Welcome to University High School

Uni offers a wide range of personalized learning programs in our Magnet, School for Advanced Studies, and three small schools. We offer 21 Advanced Placement courses. Most of our core subjects are offered as honors, and we have many electives. Our students gain acceptance to some of the best universities in the nation, including UCLA, UC Berkeley, UCSD, UCSB, UCI, and Harvard. University High School sits on a beautiful 24-acre campus in West Los Angeles. Our campus is built atop a freshwater spring that was used for centuries by the Gabrieleno Tongva people, and a portion of our campus is a dedicated California State Historical Site.

Students are encouraged to be involved and get the most out of their high school experience. Our students enjoy participating on the following teams: football, soccer, basketball, tennis, baseball, softball, track, cross country, swimming, and golf. Our drill team, cheer squad, drum line, and leadership students promote school spirit. Our theater program is planning two musicals for next year and our jazz ensemble hosts an annual winter concert.

"Uni" has a rich tradition of excellence, and our strength lies in our school's diverse student population. Uni students were born all over the world, and speak over 23 different languages. As a result, we have one of the most tolerant and diverse campuses in the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Come see why students, staff, and alumni recommend the "Uni" experience.
