U-Prep’s swim pool

U-Prep is also known as Margaret Milliones School

This school has the most confusing names. After the closing of Schenley High School, U-Prep opened in the rush to make schools include grades 6 to 12. Originally this building was for middle school grades: 6, 7 and 8.

Names include: University Prep, U-Prep High School, U-Prep, UPrep, Pittsburgh Milliones, University Preparatory School, Milliones and Margaret Milliones School.


Driving in Pittsburgh’s Hill District, turn off of Centre Ave and onto Heron Ave, away from Pitt. Then make a quick turn onto Vancroft Street. Go up the hill and at the top of the hill, turn right and that leads into the lower parking lot of the school.

Address: 3117 Centre Ave, but if you drive on Centre, you might just miss it.

Swim Pool is on the same floor as the cafeteria
