In March 1995 Uni High’s web presence began as then art teacher Karen Hellyer launched the school’s first website. Hellyer maintained this site for a few years until the school developed a new course, World Wide Web Development. In this class, students design and maintain the website themselves. A URL change from uni.uiuc.edu to uni.illinois.edu abided by the university’s online regulations in 2008. Since then the site has been either hand-coded or developed with Drupal.
The latest version of the site was released in January of 2023 as a product of the Digital Media Production class and is the work of many current and past Uni students. The goal is to serve the current Uni community while giving others a look inside the building and culture.
