Principal's Message
Welcome to the University Neighborhood High School webpage. Our hope is that you find our website to be user-friendly, and after your visit, you will have a good idea of all we have to offer.

It is our goal that every student at UNHS graduates in four years and is well prepared for the rigor of the college of their choice and life beyond. We work together with our partners: New York University, Baruch College and Grand Street Settlement to offer our students challenging curricula that are aligned with the National Core Standards. Many of our students are enrolled in honors classes, take Advanced Placement courses, and attend College Now at Baruch College. We also offer a Chinese bilingual program to many recent immigrants that join our school community.

The academic success of our students is directly related to their emotional and social well being. Our school theme is the 3 R’s: Reason, Responsibility, and Respect – have a good Reason to be engaged in any situation, Respect yourself and others, and always take Responsibility for your actions.

Parent involvement is a very important part of every child’s education. We invite all parents and guardians to join our PTA, attend parent-teacher conferences, and contact the school if they have any concerns related to your child(s) education and well being. Our counselors, teachers, and administrators remain available to answer your questions. We welcome your cooperation in helping us make your child’s educational experience a rewarding one. Our website will be another way to keep you informed about our educational program and ways you can support the academic, vocational, and personal achievement of our students.

Please take the time to browse our website and learn about many programs that are offered at UNHS.

Your support, involvement, and suggestions are appreciated and welcomed. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
