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!

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.
I have been attending Uplift North Hills since the 1st grade. As I am now a senior, I believe I have experienced the school go through so many different stages of growth. The teachers genuinely care, though sometimes plays favorites. The facilities are rough, though rumors of a facelift are being heart for over the summer. The students are generally welcoming, yet sometime it can be difficult to adapt since many of us have known each other for so long. Overall, there have been many times I have considered attending a public school instead. While I am glad I didn't, I still believe I have missed out on a lot of social possibilities and the general energy that North Hills students hold is often awkward and juvenile, though they are incredibly smart. It is certainly an interesting place to be, and its my home so I am glad I didn't leave.
