Upperman High School Reviews
Most of the faculty (teachers, guidance counselors, etc.) are very helpful and want students to succeed. My only complaints about the school are an overemphasis on sports, and severely limited STEM opportunities. For example, there are no technology-related classes or clubs, the only sciences regularly offered are the required chemistry and biology, and there are no opportunities to participate in science competitions through the school. A miscellaneous high point of UHS is that the students are super kind to students with special needs.
Upperman High School is a very personal school. The size of the enrolled students is never to much for the amazing staff that is hired there. They make sure each and every student gets the academic attention needed to see them prosper. The students are very respectful and kind to one another. The only thing I would change is the unnecessary attention put into the celebration of the basketball team. This is a very sports driven school which is defiantly not a negative, however, there does seem to be an unneeded habit of substituting other students academic time for the sake of celebrating sports at unneeded time. Other than that this is a very wonderful school where anyone could fit in.
Certain teachers were a great asset to the high school. What I would like to see change: my guidance counselors did not help students get scholarships or information about scholarships, did not evaluate college readiness, did not make themselves available to help any students concerning furthering their education into college. Diversity was not encouraged at school, in fact it was disapproved of, which led to a very poor school culture and negative environment.
