  • University School receives Silver Award, among state's best:  U.S. News & World Report ranked University School #6 among Tennessee's high schools.  View Press Release



  • Address from Dr. Brinson:  Good Morning, I would ask you to read the front page of today’s Johnson City Press. University High is recognized as the 6th ranked high school in the state, the 2nd ranked non-magnet high school in the state, and in the top 5% of all high schools in the country. Those are outstanding achievements that are the result of the hard work done by all faculty, staff, support persons, students and parents. The high school faculty takes center stage much like the K-8 faculty did several weeks ago when we were the number 1 ranked K-8 school in the region. This goes to show we are dependent on one another and when we work together we do great things for children which is what a school is all about. I am proud of each and every one of you and I ask that you share this with the students who made this happen. These awards validate the work we do each and every day. Thank you for all you do. DB
