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.
As many of you may know, thousands of people have lost their homes and all of their belongings in the Camp Fire that is currently spreading through northern California. Tomorrow during Flight Time, KU DECA will be holding a Miracle Minute to collect any spare change that you may have. All proceeds will go towards the victims of the fire. Any penny helps!
