University Prep Academy High school, it’s more than just a school. It’s a family, we bond, we come together as a community. Uprep focuses on preparing students for college. This is shown by the work that students are given and all the teachers that teach everyday! This school really does prepare you for college, it teaches you responsibility, ethics, and life lessons. This school is so much more than walking into a classroom and being talked at. The commitment that the teachers have inspire the students to do better. A class room at Uprep is a mini community, where we talk amongst eachother and learn. Most students come into school and don’t learn anything, but at Uprep failure is never an option.

It's a very average school. It has its ups and downs like any other but I feel as though they could improve a lot. They have a good amount of teachers who know how to teach well but do not accommodate them well enough to keep them at the school for long periods of time (especially new teachers) and I feel as though there is a lack of transparency between the administration and the student body because when situations we need answers to come up, they run around questions instead of being honest and straight forward about what is going on and how it effects us.
The school is a very big community. Disagreements occur but at the end of the day it feels like one big family. Always coming together to make sure everyone is feeling okay and accepted. I don’t think we could have more caring teachers. Teachers that won’t let you leave tutoring unless they know you completely understand, willing to give you a second chance, and going above and beyond their job description to make sure every student is safe and taken care of.
