Upper Darby Senior High School Reviews
Review Upper Darby Senior High School
Teachers at my school are fairly nice and some genuinely care about the subjects that they are teaching. I have never really meet a teacher at Upper Darby who isn't willing to stay after school and help a group of students or an individual who is struggling. Yes, there are some teachers who don't really want to be there or care for what they are teaching, but at the same time a majority of the teachers are fantastic!
As a student at Upper Darby High School, I hear a lot of unsavory comments from the public who have never stepped foot into the school. Many simply place students, faculty, academics, extracurriculars, and more under the general term of Upper Darby High School, as if the phrase carries a negative connotation. I want to get rid of the bad reputation we have. While I agree that some students at school act in an uncultured manner, I believe every school cannot deny having those types of students whether they know it or not. One concern the public has includes safety, but in the four years I have attended Upper Darby High School, no student has suffered any type of wounds aside from sport injuries. Furthermore, I feel Upper Darby High School prepares you more for the real world than any high school due to its diversity. Even colleges do not have the great diversity we have.
I have had wonderful experiences at Upper Darby High. I do many sports and clubs that have contributed to the moral. I mainly do track and field hockey, and both sports have become like family to me. This school has a high rate of diversity, every class will have a mix of different people whether it comes from religion, skin color, ethnicity, you will see diversity everywhere in this school. Music is a great program to be a part of. Choir has taught me so much about life, responsibility, and respect. The music department has won many awards and trophies contributing to the schools reputation and respect. Upper Darby High get a lot of jugement because of fights and rumors, but other schools are just like us. Sometimes even worse. But we have so much to offer. I am glad that I had the opportunity to go to this school. There is truly no other school that upholds the respect and diversity like Upper Darby does.
