Narrative

University High School (UHS) is an alternative high school serving Boston students age 16 to 21 years old who are struggling academically or are otherwise at-risk in the traditional school system. UHS allows kids to earn a Boston Public School (BPS) diploma from their original high school.

UHS provides an intensive learning experience, small classes, case management, career development, mentorship, and extracurricular and after school activities to encourage career exploration and help students bridge the gap between high school and college. At UHS, the curriculum is portfolio-based and life skills focused. Each student at UHS is responsible for creating a portfolio of their best work.
