University High School

Advertising Information for besthousingvalue

High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12.
University High School also known, as Uni is a secondary school located in West Los Angeles, a neighborhood of Los Angeles, California near the border of Santa Monica. University High School is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District, LAUSD. The campus also holds Indian Springs Continuation High School.
The school's mascot was formerly the Warrior, but is now the Wildcat. The school colors are blue and orange. All Native American mascots were removed from LAUSD in the mid-1990s. Uni, uniquely though, does have specific Native American heritage. The native Gabrielino Tongva people, the descendants of who continue to be active on the campus, used a natural spring on the campus.
The award-winning, weekly school newspaper, the Wildcat, is part of the High School National Ad Network. Print issues from the school's inception as Harding High are available in the journalism archives. Originally known as Warren G. Harding High School when built in 1924, the school was renamed in 1929 after UCLA moved its campus from East Hollywood to Westwood, and the reputation of former President Harding had declined. The Name University is supposed to have originated because it became a site where teachers-in-training from nearby UCLA worked as assistant teachers.
Neighborhoods served by University High School include West Los Angeles, Brentwood, Beverly Glen, Brentwood Glen, Westwood, Bel-Air, and Holmby Hills. Also included in its service area are relatively distant canyon neighborhoods adjacent to the city of Beverly Hills, whose students are not within the Beverly Hills Unified School District boundaries.

Like other Westside high schools such as Westchester and Palisades, University High School enrolls a diverse mix of students from its enrollment area and various parts of the city. Two new LAUSD high schools opened in fall 2005 and three new high schools opened in fall 2006, decreasing the number of transfer students in other high schools. The mission of University High School is to provide quality career education to students who wish to pursue respectable careers.
