Upper St. Clair School District Reviews

I find it academically challenging with many opportunities for personal growth. There are many classes offered that help to pave a career path. For example, I really enjoyed the Economics class that I took my junior year so I signed up for an advanced Economics class my senior year. That has helped me to discover a career path that I want to pursue involving businesses: finance and accounting. Personally, I have enjoyed the opportunity to engage in leadership skills through the mentoring program that I entered into ( and was selected for by a teacher panel) my junior year. I enjoyed that so much that I applied for and was selected as one of five seniors chosen to be a Super Mentor. I feel that my time at upper Saint Clair high School has allowed me to pursue my academic goals why enhancing my leadership skills. I largely attribute this to the excellent teaching staff and to my guidance counselor.

The academics at Upper St. Clair are phenomenal. I am a college freshman and I was very well prepared for classes here. Furthermore, Upper St. Clair is great for getting into good colleges, as we are known all over the country by major universities. Every year our athletic teams are some of the best, and we produce many college athletes. There are an extensive array of clubs for students to participate in. Upper St. Clair is a great school district all around that I feel really helped shape me into a strong, well-rounded young man.
I liked the amount of freedom the school offered. I enjoyed the open phone policy, which allowed students to use phones whenever they felt, as long as it was not in class. I also enjoyed the various food items presented for lunch. The school offered a healthy line, a panini line, a pizza line, and so on. Also, the snack bar was fantastic. If a student needed help in a subject, they could utilize the resource center where they can gain help from another student or a teacher.
