Uplift north has remained an outstanding performing school nationally despite the not so good rating in state, city or district of its location. Proving that anybody, any school, any district or any city can emerge as the best irrespective of the environment or location. I'm a prospective parent who didn't get a spot this year but I'll keep on trying as i want to give my children the best not only of what i can but also of all there is!

Uplift North Hills Preparatory is a school many hope to attend, yet are unable to join due to the lottery system of entry. Waiting for each school year to end so that one may enter the lottery is what many must resort to and will definitely pay off after successfully being chosen. I have attended UNHP for 6 years and will hope to graduate and there has never been a moment that I have regretted my move back in middle school. Apart from the well-rounded curriculum, the teachers are always looking to help, the students are always looking to make friends, and everyone makes certain that you will never have a dull moment at this school!
North Hills is a fantastic school. I have attended this school for all of middle and high school, and will be graduating this year. The amount of care that you receive here is just unmatched. In the beginning, it will be a little tough to keep up with the heavy workload and get a lot of friends. However, as you progress, everyone around you will appreciate you almost like a family member. This school is a family. Bullying is almost non existent and every student is driven. Although the school is academically very competitive, most of the time, the other students motivate you to perform at your best. The competition does not make the environment toxic; it is “healthy” competition. There are so many levels of support that are handed to you as a student here. Most of the teachers are almost like friends. The people will get you through the stress. I love NHP. Best school ever. I am going to cry so much at graduation. Once a panther, always a panther.
