Upper Arlington High School Reviews

I moved to the Upper Arlington school district last year at the beginning of my freshmen year, and easily to say I haven't had the best experience so far. A few of my teachers are constantly mad over something a student does, and will yell and have a fit when something doesn't go their way. There is very little diversity at the school, so everyone is in a very small bubble here. The worst thing about this school would have to be the faculties, the girls bathroom has broken locks and doors that don't shut. Also there are many leaks and smells that often occur around the school, but the school is so old that it would be expected. So far my favorite thing about Upper Arlington High School are the classes you can take, they have a variety of interesting classes for everyone, and if its not a class it might be a club.
Review Upper Arlington High School
Most teachers are pretty good, however the biology department is known to have bad teachers. Many of the teachers are so secure in their positions that they frequently take time off and tell students that they don't want to do work. For the most part though, the teachers are well qualified, helpful and nice. There is grade inflation with the easiness of the AP classes but there are also very challenging classes.
Our school principal is great really puts himself out there with the students. There is a lot of drama as most high schools have. There is some bullying but it usually consists of people in the same friend group. Social media has a great impact on hurting others. The classes that are offered at the school vary so much that students are able to try so many different things. The athletic department has great influence on students and encourages all to join. In my past experiences, the teachers really want you to succeed and will help the student succeed if they see they are struggling. For example, I was struggling with Chemistry and I needed another science class to graduate and my teacher had set me up in another class that our school offers and get the science credit it that way. In all, it was my decision to stay and struggle and work harder or go in the other class. There are so many art classes and electives that if you do one year, you are able to continue to the next level. Our school provided the students with laptop which made things easier for the students and if the student was absent from school, it was easy access to what was missed.
