    Health & Safety: They do have a police offer who is there just about every day. The school nurse shouldn't be so quick to send people back to class if they do not feel well and have no way of getting picked up.

    Overall Experience: People like to say upland is boring and at times it was. But the rallies were pretty fun and their are some great teacher here. The counselors are very helpful as well. Overall upland had relaxed vibe to it and I would attend again.

    Health & Safety: I believe that it is alright, you feel safe here but you wish you could feel even more safe . Sometimes I would feel like there wasn't enough security.

    Extracurriculars: There are a lot of extracurricular activities in this school. Some fun options would be dance or band both are fun because you get to travel to other schools and compete, especially band since they get to travel to Fresno every year for finals in competition. I was in band all 4 years and I have to say, it was a wonderful experience.
