I am fortunate to go to a beautiful, relatively new high school. It makes me feel good to walk through the hallways seeing my classmates and the other students taking care of my school. I have had many wonderful teachers that have both inspired me and made me grow into the young woman I am today. I am thankful that I can soon call Upper Dublin High School my alma mater!
Review Upper Dublin High School
Upper Dublin provides a great learning environment with updated facilities. The teachers I have come across want me to succeed and are usually available after school for any help. The school offers a wide variety of AP and Honors classes. I believe the guidance counselors can do a better job by calling for more one on one time with a student to inform them of the college process and help with personal college fits. I also wish that the counselors offered students ideas about resume building non typical teen activities or activities that can prove helpful based on a students career aspirations. Having access to the township library (across the street) as well as school library is great when you need help with research. There is an indoor pool, two gyms, and three football sized turf grounds which feed into the sports culture at Upper Dublin.
I have had multiple teachers that provide me with that feeling that they basically do not want their students to succeed. Such as not creating a solid teacher-student relationship, not providing extra help wen needed, and not acting very lenient in certain situations that impacted my grades in a major way. On the other hand, I have had a select group of a few teachers that were phenomenal when considering how they want their students to perform and the pride they take in their students. These teachers typically have established great relationships with me, and go the extra mile to make sure I posses a great understanding of what is being taught. Overall, I would say that these teachers are more on the uncommon side of teachers in Upper Dublin. I would definitely like to see a majority of teachers change their approach. The grading system was recently changed which now makes it harder to earn an A, thus weakening GPA's across the board. This also weakens a student's ability to succeed.
