The University High School was established in Carlton in 1910, and since 1930 has occupied a site in Story Street , Parkville , adjacent to the Royal Melbourne Hospital and in close proximity to the University of Melbourne and the Central Business District. The School's Strategic Plan caters for approximately 1,175 students, most of whom reside in the local area. A proportion of the School's enrolment comes from further afield, either to participate in special programs like music or as a result of sibling claims. The population has great socio-economic and cultural diversity. It values excellence in learning and teaching and the diversity bought to the school by students, teachers and parents.
University High School is constantly evolving, valuing the rich traditions of the past within the context of current educational practices and future directions. The School Strategic Plan will lead the school into the new millennium and reflects the direction for the coming years. It recognises a dynamic, energetic community of staff, students and parents which places value on a sense of individual worth and achievement, and the pursuit of excellence. The catalyst for all change will be the evaluation and critical reflection of current practices and policies to further improve the learning outcomes for students.
