Both of my children went through this school. It is where their interests blossomed. The teachers were understanding and very approachable. Both have grown up and are enjoying successful careers. Don't know what all the sour grapes is about in these other reviews.

This school has an excellent curriculum, and as a student I felt the teachers were very thorough and explanitory in my subjects. However, when I was a student at this school, there were several bomb threats in a semi-consecutive time frame. Though they were just 'pranks', for lack of a better word, pulled by unruly students, I found them disrupting to my education and very frightening. There were also several fights over the year, which was unnerving as well. Overall a good school.

I am a 9th grader who just passed the 8th grade from Upper Perk middle school and I loved how the teachers were and are great. This is a great school I loved it so much the teachers are nice and they are very good at their jobs. They make sure school is fun and helpful of the childs learning.

Our special needs child was never completely evaluated, if an evaluation had 10 subtests, only half or less were given. A complete evaluation was not done until the end of 4th grade, after much prompting from us. When we found out our child's primary disability fell under the autistic umbrella, the IEP, although wonderful on paper, could not be carried out, not only for lack of qualified staff, but also denial of the problems existence. This school lacks qualified teachers, accreditation, and desire to become proactive in education, not only in special education, but also regular education. Tenure allows for non-accountability, and hostility towards parents.

I am unhappy about the way this schools handles disapline. Oh they were bad let's give them an in school or detention. Most kids enjoy that stuff.I am also unhappy about the teachers. They choose sides. When another teacher walks in the room they go to the back and whisper about some kid. We get way to much homework and we are being taught what i was taught in 2nd grade. We have at least 3 or 4 tests a week. These teachers discust me how they like to pick on other kids who are working hard to boost up their grades. If it was up to me I wouldn't be at this school!

Ive been at UP for 4 years and you parents dont know anything about what goes on in the classroom. Its all a show when principals/parents actually observed the classes! the teachers are ridiculous! you ask for help and they say that they already went over it and if you dont understand it then its ur problem. Every single year all of my teacher have been like that. Upper Perk Middle School is just a joke.

A great school. My three kids are enrolled in the 3rd, 6th and 8th grades, respectively and I have so far been impressed with their performance: grades have steadily improved as well as discipline. I give the Principal and staff a lot of credit.

As a parent of a special needs child, I have found the staff at UPMS most willing to make accomodations for those needs. Teachers, non-teaching staff, administrators and counselors have been working with us to make certain that our child is able to thrive and excel in middle school while laying a firm groundwork for high school and college.

Yhe lack of responsible care is alarming. I cannot rely on the staff to consistently ensure my child gets on the bus to come home. The administration is unable and unwilling to provide the proper assistance to special needs children. The cheapest and easiest alternative is as far as they are willing to go to help students that do not fit their 'normal child' profile. Their solution is to transfer the 'problem' child out of their Blue Ribbon School. The teachers are not held accountable for lack of student performance in their classrooms.

The UP Middle school provided awesome experiences for my children. The teachers and staff were wonderful, experienced, professional, and truly cared about each and every student. Thank you UPMS!
