I've truly fallen in love with the Choral program on campus. It was one of my main reasons for going to Upland, and it didn't disappoint. The family it creates is unlike any other and the conductor is fantastic. I've also had very good experienced with the science department as far as knowing my information. The history department is so incredible and dedicated. They treat every student with so much kindness. They are always willing to help and are super encouraging. If you have an AP history class, and you listen and work hard, you will pass the AP test easily. I've had both good and bad math experiences, leaning more towards good. The students in the honors program of the school have been so nice and so intelligent. The teachers encourage deep discussion and push everyone to succeed. Only a couple negative experiences with math and sports team. A very enjoyable and pretty campus!

My sister (class of 2018) and I (class of 2020) went to this high school and had a fun time, made some good friends, made some amazing memories, and many other things. I even met my boyfriend here! Joining this school is one of the best decisions I've done. Sadly my senior year isn't having the best time right now but that's because of quarantine, the teachers and counselors are very helpful and trying their very best to help everyone right now.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my high school experience. I have been taught amazingly interesting things and have been taught by great educators that continue to prove their care for their students and their education. I have had great opportunities to do community service and join clubs I never expected to have any interest in. With the current fear of school shootings and the even more recent pandemic, my school has been very careful in protecting their students and I am quite appreciative. However, every school has their faults, and I would say that I would truly enjoy to see a change in the way my school allocates its funding. We are known for our sports, specifically football, and although I am very proud of many of our players it sometimes it difficult to see the obvious favoritism the school has for groups that provide them with publicity. It would be nice to see the school offer the academic groups a bit more financial support.
