UNI... 

 THE HOME OF CHAMPIONS!

University High School is located in Irvine, California directly adjacent to the University of California at Irvine.  It is one of four public high schools in the award winning Irvine Unified School District.  Uni has consistently been recognized as one of the "TOP 100" academic high schools in the nation.  Our students are academically motivated while at the same time down to earth, polite and respectful. University High School also has a very strong boys and girls tennis program.  Our staff includes professional trainers, a sports psychologist and various top hitting pros.  At Uni, we are committed to academic AND athletic excellence.

 

UNI RECOGNIZED AS.... 

 

 #1 COMPREHENSIVE PUBLIC H.S. IN ORANGE COUNTY  

AND

 #1 PUBLIC H.S. IN THE NATION!!!

 In the June 20, 2011 edition of Newsweek Magazine, University High School was the #8th ranked academic high school in the nation.  However, all of the schools before Uni and many after are magnet or charter schools.  University is the #1 ranked traditional public high school in the country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Congratulations to everyone who helps make this possible......the classified staff, the certificated staff, our incredible students and most importantly, our parents.  We are all proud to be Trojans.

LATEST NEWS - FALL 2013

UNI GIRLS FALL IN STATE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

The 2013 Uni girls tennis team lost the California State Championship match to Peninsula High School.  The Trojan girls played some incredible tennis sweeping all three double's sets but dropping the four single's sets. We congratulate our good friend Coach Hoeger and the Pen girls on an amazing season.  (You can find the match on Time Warner Cable.  The level of play, especially in the double's sets, was some of the highest quality junior tennis you will find anywhere in the nation.)  There are over 2,000 high schools in the state of California and to be the runner-up is an incredible accomplishment.  The girls finished the season with a final record of 22 wins and 3 losses.  Uni won the very difficult Pacific Coast League for the 4th straight season finishing with a perfect 10 and 0 record.

UNI GIRLS MAKE IT TO THE CIF FINALS FOR THE THIRD YEAR IN A ROW 

Uni lost the 2013 girls CIFSS (California Interscholastic Federation - Southern Section) championship match to Peninsula High School.  Pen dominated the singles and were also very solid in doubles.  This is the third straight year that the University girls have played in the CIF championship match.
