The University Prep Value High School Student and Parent Handbook includes information on the University Prep Value dress code, Pledges, Calendar, Disciplinary Procedures, Attendance Policy, Grading and the Academic Program, and Intervention and Special Education. Parents and guardians should read and understand the handbook and discuss the policies and procedures with their children as appropriate to their ages and development. Questions about information or policies in the handbook should be directed to school administrators, teachers, or the School Site Council.

You may download a copy of the Student and Parent Handbook - English or Español.

One purpose for having a dress code at University Prep is to demonstrate unity among our students.  Our students are unified in both determination and purpose in pursing the best education possible while minimizing distractions.  When a student at University Prep puts on the navy blue polo shirt and khaki pants or shorts, he or she is making a statement, in physical terms that he/she is ready to pursue the goal of attaining an exceptional education.
