University High School
, CA 90025
University High School is located on the border of West Los Angeles and Santa Monica, and draws a diverse student body ranging from all areas of the socioeconomic ladder and all colors of humanity. Uni High frequently sends its graduating seniors to Ivy League schools, Berkeley, UCLA, and Stanford, among other large and small prestigious colleges across the US.
University High was founded in 1924 as Warren G. Harding High School, but was renamed when the combination scandals of the Harding administration scandal and the founding of UCLA precipitated the change. The University High athletes had chosen the Warrior, a Native American image, as its mascot; Recently, they have changed (after I graduated in 1997) its mascot to the Wildcat.
