Upper St. Clair parents get way too involved in the lives of their children. Many clubs and activities struggle with trying to accomplish things because there has been pushback from a "concerned community member" or the administration is simply trying to please the parents. The gifted program is a highly exclusive group that disenfranchises more students than it benefits. If you are not in the gifted program you do not have access to many activities and competitions that colleges like to see. Academics are great, but it can often be a struggle to get a class you want to take and depending on your counselor, they may do limited work to make your schedule work so that you can take the classes you need for college. The acceptance of diverse students has increased, but many students of the LGBTQIA+ community still see prejudice on a daily basis. Many students are rich and white and do not realize their privilege. Teachers are mostly good.
What people fail to mention bere is the perverse racism experienced bg minorities particularly Indian. I know, I grew up here. This community is wealthy and conservative which has led to a lot of anti immigrant sentiment.
I was called all sorts of names since I was a child and humiliated and insulted as a kid. It was amongst the worst experiences Ive had.
The academics may be good but thats only because other schools nearby are mediocre.
Its success comes from attracting parents of children like myself who are already hardworking.
If you are of Indian descent and your parents have the means -go elsewhere- fox chapel etc.
despite telling admin for decades I was never supported or protected.
