About Us

Because UHS is public charter school, it must obey state education code unless directed otherwise by its charter. The UHS charter provides a blueprint about the school. UHS is chartered by Fresno Unified School District but UHS is governed by
its own Board of Directors as explained in our Organizational chart. Each year UHS publishes its School Accountability Report Card (SARC) that documents how our school is doing.  UHS has both comprehensive graduation requirements and
a unique schedule that govern our academic focus.  UHS employs its own faculty and staff and all can be reached by email via our Faculty/Staff directory.


UHS opened in the fall of the 2000-01 school year as an independent, direct-funded charter high school.
