Great honors and AP programs with plenty of extra curricular activities in sports, theatre, choir, debate teams, volunteering groups etc. Regular classes were lacking in teacher involvment but never had any complaints about AP and honors teachers!

Over the course of the past four years,I have come to learn that the teachers at Upland High School WANT to help you learn and grow as a student.I have had numerous teachers offer me additional help and guide me towards success in the college application process.I believe that the teachers and their curriculum and expectations that they have, have thoroughly prepared me to be prepared for college courses and succeed in them.My experience has also been enhanced by joining clubs,I was able to volunteer in my community and form a deeper understanding of the needs of those around me. Joining the volleyball team has also allowed me to become apart of a tight knit community with a bunch of girls who have the same passion that I do.Our faculty and staff have also continuously informed us of any efforts that they are making to ensure our safety throughout the day.Overall,Upland High School is a great school to attend as a final destination before you begin your college experience.
I loved my high school experience! Nothing but positive things to say about my high school. Let's first start off with the teachers I had. I have not one bad thing to say about my teachers I had all four years pf high school. The way our teachers prepared us for the real world really makes me appreciate how much time my teachers took out of their day. Our school thrives in its clubs and sports! Also, the diversity in our school is magnificent and proves that no matter what race or age you are, someone will always be there to help and guide you through high school.
