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!
Uplift North Hills is a great school when thinking about class ratio, level of academics, and especially the diversity of the entire school as a whole. However one of the only things that really bothered me, would be the fact that IB is something so instilled into the students as soon as the get into the school. I have been going to Uplift North Hills Preparatory since 2nd grade and since then “IB is the way to go.” Another thing I would like to mention is the lack of effort and money put into sports. I believe this is because the school is met for high achievers in academics and not for high achievers in sports, if you are looking to focus more in a sport during your high school years than academics, I would not recommend this school.
