Upper Merion High School Reviews
I was a graduate of 2013 and I enjoyed my experience in that high school. Yes there were a few fights and of course there was discrepancies between students and the faculty, but that is typical of a high school. Nothing seemed to be out of hand. Bullying did occur but not to the extent that it could have gone compared to other high schools. The faulty seemed to have a good knowledge of how to handle things and helping the students that really liked challenging themselves. i enjoyed the art department the most. Mrs. Burns is the best!
Upper Merion is like home to me. I really loved all the people - students, teachers, and administrators. If there are students who don't love it, I just don't understand why. The classes can be tough. AP classes ask for too much time after school, on weekends, and in the SUMMER! I had to drop back to CP level in several courses but besides that I think the academic classes are great.
In terms of racial/ethnic/cultural/religious diversity, perhaps 5-stars would be a more accurate review. My school houses seemingly every religion from Islam to Buddhism, every ethnicity from Nepalese to Liberian, every race from white to Latino. Walking down a hallway, you might hear Arabic, Spanish, or Mandarin. In all honesty, ethnic groups did tend to stick together; although there were obviously exceptions, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, and Dominicans generally hung out together, East Asians hung out together, African Americans hung out together. Similarly, sexual orientation was never really a problem, even though similar individuals mostly stuck together. My school is very liberal and accepting, even though it is not particularly large.
