In most cities, students can only get what University High School offers at a private school. These schools are out of the reach of many because of the cost.
In Fresno, this opportunity is accessible to everyone because it’s part of the public school system. What a tremendous accomplishment! And as our local schools continue to improve their teaching and curricula, there is undoubtedly a growing pool of young students, of all races and backgrounds, who will be ready and eager to take advantage of what UHS has to offer.
Is it really in the best interest of our future high schoolers to eliminate this opportunity? For the sake of those yet to come, let’s fix what needs fixing and help this school thrive.
