    Overall Experience: My high school experience were my best years of my 13 year education. My teachers were my everything. I was a student in the special education program and had an IEP the full time I was a student. When I was in the hospital my Sophomore year, my teachers offered to visit me at the hospital and to give me small lessons while I was there, so I wouldn't fall as far behind.

    Extracurriculars: UAHS allows any time of club to be started, creating a large variety of clubs. If a club you were interested in wasn't offered at the high school, it was super easy to start it yourself with help from a teacher. The teachers were more than willing to help students start clubs.
