KUHS is proud to be recognized as an AVID high school, a high school that has proven achievement and creates lifelong advantages for our students. Our fine and performing arts programs are second to none. KUHS offers a Liberal Arts Academy with OIT where students can earn up to 18 college credits before they graduate high school! We are also partnering with KCC to offer a KU/KCC Career Pathways program where students can take classes at KCC in Computer Technology, Digital Media Design, Emergency Response Operations, Auto-Diesel Technology and Welding. In some of the pathways, students can become certified before they graduate high school! KUHS continues to be strong with exceptional programs in business.

PSAT score reports from College Board will be posted electronically to student's individual email addresses between Dec. 10-12. KU students will receive their paper reports after the schools receive them, and they will be dispersed to Sophomores and Juniors (who took the test in October) after Winter Break.
Parents and Students: A valuable resource for students to get extra help in classes is available every day after school in the KU Media Center. Tutoring is free and available from 3:15 - 5:15 pm Monday through Friday. Everyone needs extra effort and help with academics at one time or another. Tutoring is another opportunity to improve grades!
