    Health & Safety: Bullying is prevalent at Upland High I think because there are so many students at our school and it's hard to control all of them. The proctors are very available for help and try to keep all students in line. The nurse is very available and she has called home to my mom many times for me.

    Overall Experience: It hard to say if I had to do it over again if I would go to Upland High. It's a large student body which makes it difficult at times to get around the campus and meet with teachers. My favorite experiences have been playing baseball and hanging out with my friends. What makes Upland unique is the AP program that I wish I could've been a part of. I just didn't have high enough grades to be a part of it. Overall, Upland is very diverse and has been a good place for me to go to High School.

    Food: The food could use some help at Upland High. They need to offer healthier items as well as take into consideration those that have peanut allergies. Also our lunch times are really early and not long enough to eat. I would like to see more of a healthier variety at Upland High.

    Administration & Policies: Upland high's principal is very involved and holds classes for students and parents on parenting skills, discipline, cyber bullying and college information. The staff has zero tolerance for drugs and fighting. I have seen first hand our principal and proctors get involved in situations where they have dealt with students who received consequences for their behavior for fighting or drugs

    Sports & Fitness: Upland High school is supported by all the community in Upland. The football team is one of the best in the area and that makes for very fun Friday night games. Which is one of the reasons we have great school spirit. Not too mention the soccer teams and the baseball teams. Upland has had 26 signing scholarships this year for sports! That's one of the highest numbers we have had. I'm proud to say I'm going to be an alumni of Upland high!
