Uplift North Hills Preparatory Upper School Reviews
Review Uplift North Hills Preparatory Upper School
It's difficult and the facilities aren't the best, but the community find a way to make it work. At first glance, it's doesn't look great, but I wouldn't be the person I am today without the teachers and students I'm surrounded by. Having teachers and students that care education really allows for a thriving classroom. In addition, this college prep school really does prep you for college. The counselors do a great job helping every student find a college that fits their needs. If you're willing to put in a lot of work(and are willing to work with your teachers if your struggle), this is the place for you! And trust me, there's a lot to work on in AP and IB classes.
Although the school's facilities could be better and it lacks a football team, its certification as an International Baccalaureate school and famous World Walk more than make up for it. The academics are wonderful because of the available courses and the passionate teachers who make sure all students get through the rigorous courses. The small class sizes make for an intimate setting where everyone knows each other. It is thus easy to stop trouble; any serious troublemakers are usually expelled. There is even a Road to College office who follow each student into college and beyond. Everyone is ready to help the students learn, including parents who make up groups like the Athletic Booster club. Despite the lack of funding, the Cross Country, Track, and Soccer teams have been winning district-wide competitions for years. Other sports are available, and activities like Model UN and robotics. Students here become a part of a family.
You won't find any other school like North Hills. I entered the school in 8th grade and had heard so many rumors about it being a painfully rigorous, and personally felt like I wouldn't survive very long at the school. The school without a doubt can be very challenging at times, but I was amazed by how devoted the faculty were to ensuring that we received the highest level of education by offering any kind of after hour help to make sure I was able to keep up with the curriculum. On top of a high standard for education, the school is extremely diverse, and is filled with students from many backgrounds. I feel blessed to have been apart of the class of 2017 while attending North Hills because of the way it has impacted my outlook on life, and I hope to be able to make my mentors proud by being successful.
