Upper Dublin High School Reviews

252 reviews

The facilities at the high school were incredible. Complete renovations were finished in 2012, and the arts and sports departments were stellar. Teacher experience varied, as in all schools, but the gap between some teachers expecting very little and others teaching high above the foundational curriculum, to the point of vast confusion and discomfort, was troublesome at times. Also, the district is predominantly white, and as a person of color I had a hard time feeling as if I belonged there. There was a dissapointing minority of teachers of color, as well. Some efforts were made during Black history Month to include cultures which we lacked, but more efforts would have been appreciated. Overall, I felt very blessed to attend such a privileged school.

As a student who is graduating from Upper Dublin this year in 2020, I think that the school has a great campus and the student body is reasonably diverse with the majority of the school being made up of Caucasian students and Asian students while African American students are the minority in the district. The culture at the school is heavily shaped by the students who attend the school and the teachers who teach in it. In Upper Dublin, the culture is often centered around athletics and academics but often times the academics are overemphasized and the teachers are simply going through the motions without true care about any particular student. It is clear in Upper Dublin that while academics are at the forefront of what "we do" it is up to the student to oftentimes teach themselves or drown in the work that is piled on to continuously have you working towards that oh so important standardized test grade.
I have been an Upper Dublin Cardinal since September 2007 when I stepped foot in Jarrettown Elementary School. It's been 13 years, and I still love UD as much as I loved it in kindergarten. Through Upper Dublin, I have been given countless opportunities. Great teachers and staff, interesting classes and advanced technology, among other things. From having a club for kids with divorced parents in elementary school to having the chance to perform in a beautiful auditorium- UD has it all. Specifically, in high school I have been prepared for the next 4 years so well. My teachers and guidance counselors have been some of the best resources in helping me figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life, and the friends I've made have been my biggest supporters. Upper Dublin High School and the rest of the school districts are such quality schools that provide a great education, have great staff, and endless opportunities for success.
