    Overall Experience: I received harassment from students as well as one teacher and had multiple speak poorly about my religion/religion in general to the class. Students would always ask to cheat off my assignments. Students were very rowdy and rude. All four years, dress code has not been consistently enforced; Dress code was very much needed. We had a great music program; choir and band students were very talented. Marching band did not receive funding from the school. We were one of the very few bands to have a Pipe Band; We had a few very talented bagpipers. Due to the overall environment, I would not want to attend this school again if i could do it over. (Besides the 'politics') my favorite experiences occurred while I was in band, but outside of band, I hated school.

    Overall Experience: The food not good. There are too many people who are immature. Besides those bad remarks, the school has friendly counselors who are determined to help all students to pursue the path towards college.

    Food: For what it costs the food program at Upland is very good. They offer the basics and a small variety of available food for the students.

    Administration & Policies: Staff is always available to talk with for any situation. There are always as helpful as they can be and want the best for their students. They are prideful of how their students achieve later on in college.
