I have gone to Upper Perk all my life. While it is not the greatest school in the world, I have been given many amazing opportunities from going there, especially in High School. I was able to attend Film Festivals and Award shows, and even volunteer at the Emmy's! Additionally, I got to go on many fun school trips, like the Musical Arts trip to Disney World this past March/April (2019).

Upper Perkiomen is a small school so the teachers know every one of their students. They take the time to help everyone and they push everyone to the best of their abilities. They are caring and really do love to teach. Since the school is small, everyone has the opportunity to play a sport and helps build lasting friendships. Overall the teachers and athletics make this a great school to attend!
One thing I love about my school is the friendliness and school participation. Whether it be coming together for a sporting event, fundraiser, or another activity, I think my student body is outstanding when it comes to getting together to have fun and support our school. Along with a great student body, our teachers do their best to help us get what we need to succeed, and have taught me so much over the years and have really prepared me for college!
