You simply cannot find a better school in the area. My child is a Junior and an AP student, though he performs normally academically. He does very well at Upland and after moving to Rancho and later La Verne, we both decided to turn down both Los Osos, and Bonita to stay at Upland. My other son, at Bonita, is on track to transfer to Upland next semester. Upland runs a professional program with competent administration and overall very good teachers. If you don't think so, take a look or drop by other schools. You don't get the polite hellos and smiles that you do at Upland's offices, you get sneers and whatevers. Their sports program is a wonderful example of how a high school athletics program should be ran. Professional but not overbearing. Academically, the school does very well and gets better every year. There tends to be *A* social gap, but it's not as bad here. The new, current principal runs the school very well. At first, I thought Osos and Bonita were better schools, but after dealing with both, Upland continues to shine above the rest. If you disagree, go ahead and head on over to other schools. They don't offer all that Upland does, and UHS does it better!

You get back what you put in. After reading some of these comments, I'm a little dismayed. My daughter is neither Caucasian nor privileged and she had great teachers who encouraged her to reach her full potential. The AP/Honors program is fantastic and I don't see where all these complaints about college prep are coming from. My daughter got into Smith College. Enough said. Upland High School is fantastic.

Great school in my opinion. Just for clarification all of the new laptops, smart boards, and building projects, were paid for by state grants, the school did not pay for these out if its own funds. Paper is not included in any grant.

This school is great. Their marching band is really good too. What I love about this school is that there is good education for kids, or teens. They have good extracurricular activities, but one thing they could improve on is teach more languages.

This school is a ship without a rudder. The principal is gutless and clueless. He would rather sweep problems under the rug than make an honest effort to correct them. The faculty is a mixed bag of very competent and very incompetent teachers. The manner in which some teachers treat students and parents is disgraceful. Bullying is encouraged by some teachers. If you are considering a move to Upland, I would suggest you look elsewhere.Rating this school with two stars is being very generous!

I hate this school. I can't even put it in words. I hate this school so much that I don't even want to give it a star. Some of the teachers there are just incapable. They cannot teach! Then there's that awful green color you see everywhere you look. These people really don't know where to put there money. Their library is inadequate. It literally leaks. And it's so dark and half the computers there are broken. They have also just built themselves an extra gym (god knows why and the year it was in construction, there was this whole budget on paper and tissues! They use all their money on smart boards and laptops, but they have no money to get paper. And the teachers can't even appreciate if they do have paper. It's insane how much they waste. I had some really bad experiences here. The school is just ridiculous to me. It is also very crowded. I am giving them a star because their AP/Honors program is somewhat good, but WASC has sent Upland High a warning. There is too large a gap between the AP/H students and the college prep. Students are mostly snobby, rich Caucasians. I don't like the atmosphere created by Upland High. I am a Junior.

UHS is one of the best High Schools in the area. They Have an exceptional AP & honors program, a wide range of after school activities to keep everybody involved, great athletic teams in almost every sport, good counselors, and you clearly can see the administrators involved in every aspect of the school. Just as everywhere else, they have their quote of bad coaches and negligent teachers, however you have easy access to everybody here, teachers, coaches, counselors, and administrators. Stay involved in your kid's activities and they are going to be all right. UHS is a safe and positive place for them to be.

Adding technology and upgrading our classrooms isn't being done unwisely or to just "look nice". It affords teachers the opportunities to utilize more inclusive and engaging instructional strategies. The modernization is paid for by specific funds that must be utilized for this purpose. We do not "waste" funding on campus. It is specifically targeted for instructional purposes and for student benefit.

Since I'm only finishing up my freshman year, I can't say very much, but so far the teachers I've gotten this year are not very good (especially math and science) but they have an excellent AP/Honors program. We have an amazing history department and I was lucky to get one of the only good English teachers this year. We don't spend money very wisely however but there's not much we can do about it. Since funds have been cut, a lot of activities and clubs are no longer available which is bad for incoming freshmen, but hopefully when our economy is back on track things will get better.

The school offers great programs but spends its money very unwisely as every year they build or renovate a different sector of the school. They seem to aspire to be a school known for its looks but many do not know that for the beauty of the school to exist funds have been cut from many areas that are well needed. This year as well as the last there was a shortage of books for many classes, paper is being used sparingly and many more sectors of the school are being deprived.

good ap/honors program, however some teachers might just be a joke, and certain counselors are just pretty helpless/useless.

Posted July 25, 2009

The school has great classes but recently have installed cameras all over the campus. When they are having issues funding extra programs and firing teachers wit an already lack of math books for classrooms. Yet year after year they either build or fix-up the school's appearance instead of funding what is needed. I am a junior.

As a senior at Upland High I have seen the school's atmosphere really transform. I expect that it'll only get better as the years go by. There are some amazing teacher's, but with good comes bad and, unfortunately, some should have spared both students and parents and never chose the career path to become teachers. It really comes down to the luck of the draw. Besides that, Upland High School's counselor's are truly amazing and are dedicated in the life-time success of the students. With every thing considered I give UHS an Average Rating.

I can honestly say within the two years my son has been attending Upland, that I have become more and more disgruntled at the staff and the shool as a whole. The teachers are far to concerned about themselves and the popular kids to care or even pay attention to the others. We have often had assignments and work get lost or graded incorrectly. Far more than should happen. And there is is a SERIOUS lack of accountability from the teaching staff. I will definitely be looking into transferring my son from this good old boy small town joke of a high school, to somewhere that actually cares for ALL the kids futures and academic well being, not just who the ones whose family were alumni or are the 'in' kids.

My daughter is a sophmore at Upland High and I love it! We drive 60 miles every day just for her to go there. The schools in our area have lower test scores and are not on the same educational level as Upland. We transferred our daughter to Upland Unified when she was going into Jr. High-that way entering High School wouldn't be so overwhelming. She struggled through 7th and 8th grade because her elementary education was far below Uplands. She has maintained a 3.5 GPA so far through 9th and 10th grade. She is extremely involved on campus and the students have wonerful school spirit. My only complaint is the new administration. They hired a new principal and vice principal last school year and they are terrible. The District thought the school would benifit from having two principals but it has actually not been benifical at all.

I really liked Upland High School. I was fortunate enough to be in ASB, on the track and cross country teams, played soccer for a year, and was in the Honors/AP program. This school is great because it offers so many activities for the students to do. How ever one thing i would say is that the school focuses a lot on athletics, I think a little less from athletics and a little more on academics would be just right! Overall Upland is a bunch of networks that all work well together and make Upland a great place to receive a high school education. oH and also I don't know what I think about the new adminstration move to 2 principles. I was very pleased how it was working before and I liked the Assistant Principal that is no longer there.

I am not happy with the school having so many teachers that just give out worksheets and sit down.They should be instructing and checking for understanding. There is a minority of teachers that use technology out of the 150+ teachers and keep lessons relevant. Administrators should be in classes unannounced to see what is happening. The landscaping is nice though - not really important.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
