Upper St. Clair High School Reviews
I am very grateful for the opportunities Upper St. Clair has given me. The school goes above and beyond to ensure students are prepared for college and their future. I also love how many programs we are able to get involved with, personally, I am involved in Girls United Globally, Kids Helping Kids, and Stage crew. All of these have allowed me to expand my horizons and global views and meet new people and find new opportunities. One thing I would like to see more of at USC is diversity. Our school has slowly started encourage diversity by creating “Diversity Week”. Diversity Week is a week at our school where all the clubs come together to talk about their diverse aspects. I am happy we are starting to step closer to embracing diversity at our school!
Lots of great clubs/activities and supportive teachers. Good opportunities to learn a variety of subjects. Very rigorous curriculum, especially if you do the IB path. Great sporting programs and an excellent Athletic director. The school itself if very old and tired and could use a remodel. It is not as diverse as it could be but of course we are in the suburbs of Pittsburgh so difficulty with diversity. Strong PTSO that is inclusive and supportive of the children/staff. Excellent STEM programs and resources, and good communication with families on schoolwork with the canvas program.
I think that Upper St. Clair High School provides amazing opportunities to their students, while teachers are also always there to support students in their journey to discover the next steps of their lives. Unfortunately, the competitive atmosphere of the school district seems to increase the existence of depression and anxiety in some of its students, but the school sets up many helpful programs to aid those students throughout their four years in high school.
