    As a student who attends this school I know first hand what kind of school this is. I love how challenging the courses are. The environment is welcoming and peaceful. Every student strides to reach their full potential with the support of the teachers and their fellow peers. Although University High School is very challenging it is also very enjoyable. You have the privilege of meeting people of diverse backgrounds which helps to build essential social skills. The one thing i believe this school lacks as well as the Tolleson Union High School District is funds. Although the majority of schools need funds very few are able to work with what they have. In University High we work with what we have and we have been successful. University High is like nothing i have every encountered.

    I was skeptical about all Phoenix schools because there not a challenge for the kids. I was school surfing and came across this school. I said this school has 10 out of 10 stars you have gots to be kidding. I did the research and loved what I saw. The test results were good performance everything I wanted to here about the school. I took my son to take the test and he passed. I was so happy because I just want a challenge for him. We're from Michigan and I was disappointed with the school system so I was looking for something challenging. I am happy with the results. The school is very challenging and keeps kids focused. My son is learning alot and is challenged thank you.

    University High is an amazing school where they teach you based on where you are at not where the rest of the student body is at. The pace is specialized to fit any teen's learning. They support you and this school is really like a family. We all work together to support each other and build each other up.

    Coming from Ohio our son was not being challenged in the Arizona public school system. We were very excited with what we heard about this school and it has met our desire for a challenging education. We are very happy with this school and the small school setting within the Tolleson Union High School.
