Upland High School Reviews

By a Current Student on

Upland is a FANTASTIC school, and let's start there.  It's classes are strong and there are enough good and truly brilliant teachers that want nothing more than student success.  The AP program is rock-solid and consistently scores better than any other regional school, and the catalog is quite large, considering.  For those that disagree, let's take a look at why.

Upland is very much so a "split school" as is the city, in a sense.  There's the wealthier white upper middle class north of Baseline and then there's the minorities in South Upland, a still safe and affluent community just a bit more rough around the edges.  In the end, it comes down to students not putting in enough to get out of this fantastic school.

The school is definitely reaching capacity and that is often considered (a new school isn't a new idea) but this large student body leads to great diversity and many clubs and extra-curricular activities.  Sports are strong in most aspects and typically lead to better performance academically.
These students in the AP/Honors and sports and club and Regiment programs at the school truly are getting the most amazing high school experience.  They also TEND to be those of North Upland.

Those that only go to class, then leave, are missing out.  Plain and simple.  In the same sense that college is best for those that interact with the world around them, Upland walks that same line.

In the end, this school is definitely a strong school and really has great academics, it just ends up being that half are the excelling, Yale, Harvard, Stanford-bound, and the other half are those that go to class, go the lunch, take a test, then go off who knows where.
