Upland High School Reviews
Review Upland High School
Overall, I had a good experience here. Most of the teachers cared for their students and I only had a few that were overly tough or unreasonable. I felt very safe on the campus especially because of the surrounding gates. The people who work in the office are all friendly and will help you with anything you need. The counselours are always busy and its hard to find time to go and speak to them, but my counselor was always friendly during the mandatory sessions. The campus itself is large and well kept, so it was always a nice experience walking around the campus. We have a great football team and some very talented athletes at this school!
Growing up in the area, I knew a lot of people at UHS so the 4,000 student population actually felt comfortable to me. As parents may be concerned, there was really little to no bullying that I was ever aware of. There were tons of clubs to get involved with: CSF, Key Club, FCA, chess, robotics. Not to mention the great football team and numerous other sports including water polo, track & field, baseball, softball, tennis, etc. The marching band was stellar and they actually won nationals in my graduating year (2014/15). There are also a lot of AP classes offered at UHS, with amazing teachers behind them. I would highly recommend taking AP history classes, as those were my favorite. It's one of the best AP programs offered in the area and the student community within the classes is tight-knit.
Everyday I enjoyed walking into a positive environment but despite this, there was an eagerness to study. Studying is two complex ways that define a student. One of them being memorization and the other actually retaining the information you studied beyond the test. At Upland High School, our teachers told us many times to study for the test. Teachers did not tell their students to study and actually learn so we could do well but just to focus on the test. This led to loss information and took a while for myself to change my habits of studying. The best thing of this all was that some teachers did show students like myself how to study. In summer school, my governement teacher slammed multiple quizzes at us each week, forcing myself to study like no other. In geometry, the teacher made the subject so enjoyable that I wanted to learn. If more teachers could teach motivation and the proper way to study at my school, there would be higher gpas' and an increased graduate rate.
