I'm a student at UPA and this ins my second year and I'm in the 7th grade and I think is school is great because they understand your strengths and weaknesses in subjects. I like how they get you ready for college and I appreciate how they have after school tutoring in all subjects.

Teachers are large motivators, but teachers also disagree with the student code of conduct and cant seem to stand up for it.

Amount of homework: Too much

Some teachers give out assignments with 30-65+ questions, and expect the student to finish it all in one night and if a student does the teacher tells the student that they are given another day to finish it and keep doing the same thing until its actually the due date to turn it in.

Students push each other to do better. And achieve their goals in the process of learning. Students are very intelligent and are willing to learn.

Most staff members are very strict, and some staff members talk to the students as if they were their very own children. Which that can be very overboard and uncomfortable for the student.

Students are treated like slaves, they work very hard on test scores and at through out the school year students barely go on field trips. However they may go for walks around downtown but they can never be taken somewhere farther.

This school does NOT develop honesty and fairness within the students. Students are treated in such a bad way. Students are stranded from doing anything. This school is so called supposed to be a Expeditionary Learning school when students are supposed to go "outside the school building and learn new things" This school isn't for everyone but if you child have bad behavior I recommend sending them to this school.

Students do not receive much freedom. Students are not given enough field trips. The Academic core values are pointless. The uniform policy is very strict and frustrating. Certain staff members are very disrespectful to the students. The school is a very depressing place. I do not recommend anyone enrolling their child into this school. Students have to tuck their shirts in regardless of sex. Students have to wear all black shoes. Students can only wear a fleece with a Uprep logo on it. Its really a lot going on with this school don't believe the hype.
