About our school

Our school emphasizes literacy, math, and science as the foundations to careers in healthcare. In addition, our students complete Regents-based lessons in all core content areas and additional coursework in Foreign Language, the Arts, Physical Education, and Health. Over the course of a four-year high school career, students have opportunities in their junior and senior years for extended blocks of work-based learning and early college articulated courses.

UASCH is co-located on the Franklin K. Lane Educational Campus with 5 other high schools: Multicultural High School, Brooklyn Lab School, The Academy of Innovative Technology, Uncommon Collegiate Charter School, and Cypress Hills Collegiate Prep. UASCH opened in 2014 with a 9th grade cohort, and celebrated our first graduating class in June of 2018.
