What is a CBA? 

CBA stands for Curriculum Based Assessment and what it does is measure where a student is with respect to the Curriculum and the expected timeline for the STAAR assessments. They are very short tests.  The Benchmarks (BM) on the other hand are full length practice tests that serve as predictors for the real STAAR exams.

From the Principal

 Dear Parents / Students,

Greetings to all our UHS Parents / Students! We hope that your summer vacation has been relaxing and rejuvenating. As our 2014 -2015 school year begins, we are planning and preparing with the highest of expectations for continued success. Student schedules are being finalized, our building maintenance has been ongoing, our staff is complete, and our enrollment continues to grow. As we look across United Ave, we see our new Ninth Grade Annex construction beginning. We see our future developing as our neighborhoods grow around our academic complex.
Our preliminary scores indicate that our “Tradition of Excellence” continues to make UHS a leader in academics within our city and region. I commend all our staff in maximizing all our efforts towards our goal of improving student achievement. We are LONGHORN PROUD!

We are looking forward to meeting with all of you on the week of August 25, 2014.
