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.
Purely as an educational institution, I have had a wonderful experience in learning at Upper St. Clair. Their clubs really involve the students, and often allow students to have the opportunity to lead. The teachers here are amazing; I've grown comfortable asking my math and english teachers for help when I have needed it, and they have always met my needs without fail. The only problem I have is the fact that the student groups are not very inclusive to everyone, as the students have been friends from a young age.
