    Overall Experience: My school is an overall great school. There have been some issues with disrespectful teachers and administration but I have been lucky and have gotten some of the best teachers. I wouldn't choose any other school over my school because Upland High School has some of the top honors and A.P. teachers that have really helped me accelerate in my courses and have shown me that I can always push myself to do better. Our school has great school spirit which makes it easier to feel comfortable and it makes you feel like you have a family there. Although some say smaller schools with less students are better I believe Upland High School is one of the top schools regardless of how many kids there are. I liked having a high school with a bigger amount of students because you get to meet more people and have more experiences. If I had to do high school all over again I wouldn't hesitate to choose Upland High School again.

    Overall Experience: During my time at Upland High School I've realized that anything can happen. When I first joined as a freshman I had no idea that I was going to fall in love with my Architecture class. Now I am looking to go into the Architecture field as a career later on. You'll meet tons of great people here and if you keep yourself involved, you'll love this school .

    Overall Experience: I was very involved in sports and classes. I love how the teachers are always there if you are not getting something. The teachers are for the most part very good at teaching. I think the football games is my favorite part about going to Upland. I also think it is cool that we have two mascots. I would definitely come here again if I could do it all over again.

    Overall Experience: I really enjoy my school because there is something for everybody. If you love sports an also want to be in clubs you can. If you have trouble balancing out sports an school the coaches are willing to work with you can undoubtedly understand why school should always come first. What makes my school unique is that we have excellent academics and athletics and we take great pride in balancing out the two.
