Uplift Community High School Reviews

Uplift staff and students interact with one another such as families do. The teachers are heavily involved in a few of their students lives ad often look for ways to better a situation. But the lack of communication and heads up given between fellow teachers and teachers and students could use improvement, so there isn't much of a rush. Most teachers have high expectations for the students and it allows a few of us to rise to the occasion. But most teachers constantly simplify things for the majority who don't really try. Our school barely has funding for anything so we basically only have a basketball team because that's the only thing that the people prioritize.

Since I've started going to Uplift, I felt welcome and included. I was encouraged to join clubs and extracurricular activities. The teachers make sure you are on top of your academics and help keep your grades up.
The academics here are not challenging. The only thing keeping this school alive is the dedication that the teachers show to their students!
