From the school website and our discussion with Nimi Sandhu our group learned that UHS school places a large emphasis on academia and sports. A plan in discussion is for UHS school to be a school of choice for prospective Olympians and other sport recruitment.
An ecological food system in the school would benefit these current school goals.
