Upper Arlington High School Reviews

There are many ways to get extra help from teachers and most teachers care a lot about the students and help you get ready for college, academics overall are great. However, there is very little diversity and some controversial decisions have been made that many students dislike. For example, they enforced carpooling because most students won't have parking spots all year, and there ended up being so many spots left over so some juniors and sophomores ended up getting spots which was exclusively a senior privilege. Also, there is closed lunch for only freshman which is disliked by students because open lunch was something most of them were looking forward to. They're supposed to make a new building but will not be open for a while, so the school overall isn't super nice looking on the inside. Another popular thing was that they would play music in the halls on Fridays, but that is gone too.

While Upper Arlington High School offers excellent resources to students academically, it lacks insight into the outside world. As a city, Upper Arlington is a "bubble" and is often referred to as "The Bubble" by residents and students.

Students are not prepared by the school to understand the outside world (sometimes even their neighbors) and are shocked by such when exposure occurs.
Great school for college readiness. I had a great experience in UA. The teachers are wonderful, I never felt unsafe, and there is an abundance of activities to get involved in!
