|2018 - University High School is just a school. Yes, it does have a tenuous association with the university but in my, not inconsiderable experience, it is not significantly better (academically) than comparable government schools in Melbourne (unless your child is clever enough to be accepted into the SEAL program) which makes things different.|
As the school’s staff and several articles will attest to, it is under-resourced and severely oversubscribed and will become more so as population increases exponentially in North Melbourne and Parkville in the years to come with the construction of 10s of thousands dwellings, many purchased of course to gaining residency and therefore access to this school. This isn’t a good thing It’s a good school, but don’t get too excited about it is all I’m saying…..

|I moved in to the zone to get my son into Uni High. My other two boys went to a private boys school. He just started Year 7 this year 2018, and he is reasonably smart but has struggled in the first few weeks to find his feet. I don’t think the school helps the newer kids who know no one to find their way around. There is also no way to track absences so if your child does not turn up or wag school you are not notified. Jury is out yet as to whether we will continue here. |

|2016 - First year with the school. I think the school has its reputation partly because it imports students who have probably had tutors since Prep and/or are self driven high achievers. It is definitely disproportionally focussed on high achieving students and from the point of enrolment. Many people seem to buy their way into the school and zone. I think the social environment is quite well managed and relatively friendly but it is not a school for average or struggling students. In some ways it is a disappointment - the private system seems generally more nurturing and has to work harder to achieve a good reputation. |
