Uplift North Hills Preparatory Upper School Reviews

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!

The extended essay during senior year prepared me a lot for college. The college counselors were helpful and some of the teachers are down to earth and they really care about your performance. The school itself should not make community colleges sound inferior to universities. They should be more supportive on those who couldn't receive a scholarship and support those that choose affordable options as well. The international parade and talent show adds on by making people more open minded and well rounded. Also, I would change the hierarchical system they have with seniors are the best and freshman are the worst. There is a tradition of the sophomores and above labeling all freshman as immature. With the front door senior privilege, it is very inconsiderate to make the underclassmen walk further out in the cold to open the cafeteria door, instead letting them enter the front lobby to get out of the cold quickly. They should remove that & replace it with a different privilege.
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.
