Uplift North Hills Preparatory - High School Reviews

I am a scholar currently attending Uplift North Hills Preparatory. Through the rigorous AP and IB courses provided, I was able to set higher goals for myself than students at regular public high schools near me. Most teachers here are understanding and easy to talk to. Because of the necessity to balance my own time between many assignments, projects, and essays with extracurricular activities outside of school, this school has definitely improved my time management skills and productivity. However, the sports they provide are very limited such as the lack of a football team. But by allowing the establishment of student led organizations, my leadership skills have greatly improved through my high school years. Although I would like to see a larger variety in the courses provided by this school, I am satisfied with the learning experience at Uplift North Hills Preparatory.

I have been at UNHP since 6th grade. I’ve met a lot of amazing students and teachers throughout the years. The school is a good school when looking at academics and diversity. It’s competitive and it challenges students academic wise. However, it does not provide many AP classes, because it heavily focuses on IB, which is unfair to the students who don’t want to take IB. Additionally, UNHP doesn’t have many clubs or activities that students can explore. There is also a limited number of classes to choose from, preventing students from being able to explore different fields of study. Overall, UNHP does prepare students for college due to its challenging curriculum but it has a limited amount of activities and classes for students to explore.
I began attending North Hills in 6th grade and recently graduated from there. There's a running joke that if you fail a test everyone will know because of how small the school is (my graduating class was around 100) and honestly it kept everyone on their toes. I know for me it motivated me to try harder on my work, especially with the loving faculty there, asking how you are and how they can help you. Unlike other schools, the teachers at North Hills genuinely care for their students and are interested in their students and their work. At one point North Hills was considered one of the top 10 most challenging high schools in America, but to this day it is still the best school compared to other uplift branches. Overall it is a small school that excels in academics, prepares students for college, encourages cultural appreciation (cultural festivals, parades, diverse campus), and invests in their students via new facilities and new technology (lending out Chromebooks to students).
