Great teachers for the most part. Always eager to teach and assist their students. Food is subpar. Regardless, I wouldn't have wanted to attend anywhere else.

I feel that students unfairly criticize the education, but it is actually pretty good. While Upper Adams does not offer "AP Classes" the "advanced" classes offered are just as difficult and helpful. You just don't get the AP label on your resume.
Honestly not the best school but i’ve made good friends and good memories here. I took the ACT test and my school did not teach me anything that was on the test.
