Everyone says this school so such a great school, and it is to a certain degree. I was bully all through elementary, middle school, and now high school. I love it when students bully you in the hallways or in the classrooms and the teachers don't come out and check on you. I this one girl in my class that would love every 5 minutes to wonder the halls (aka bathroom) The school will not help you at all with situations and if you do not do sports , you may fail a class or two. If you do sports/cheerleader the teachers will MAKE SURE that you get "extra credit" or just give you random points to boost your grade up, so you can still play the sport. I have seen teachers leave the classes for over 20 mins while students are playing with their phones and doing nothing. There is a lot that goes on at this school that is pushed under the rug.

Upper Dublin High School has been completely updated and what a beautiful facility it is.... My nieces and nephews will all be going to Upper Dublin. My Nephew was the first class to graduate since the remodel and it was a wonderful graduation. I look forward to going to their sport activities.

Three of my children are graduates of Upper Dublin High School. All of them have had tremendous success at the college and professional level because of the quality of education that UDHS delivers.

I have seen many different school districts and by far, Upper Dublin is the best. Although the facility is in need of repair, plans are underway for exactly that. After reading an article listing the top schools in the nation, I was extremely surprised that Upper Dublin did not show up. In my opinion, it is most certainly better than some that did make it onto the list. Please, Upper Dublin is the best place to send your child.

UDHS is a terrific school with high academic standards for children who do not have any special needs and have a learning style that fits well in a large classroom and big school environment. However, it is severely lacking in special education. Personal experience has found responsiveness untimely, inappropriate and therefore ineffective. If your child has a special need, I would not recommend this school. Unfortunately, for such a wealthy school district, expertise lies more in knowing how to keep your child from receiving any resources that may cost extra or may require outside services due to the inavailability at the school. As unfair as it is, in the long run, going outside the system will be more beneficial to your child unless you can afford legal counsel.

UD is a fantastic school district. The focus on academics was great, and it was a fun competitive environment. When I left high school there, several local secondary schools such as Temple actually mentioned to me how folks graduating form UDHS were respected. Also, the extracurricular activities were terrific. Two that I was very involved with, music and running (xcountry, indoor & outdoor track) had dynamite instructors/coaches who really helped out students in many ways, and each program had more than it's share of high achievers as measured state wide. Besides the major extracurriculars, there were many academically focused clubs (international club, ecology club) and some activities not necessarily common to every high school available to students (hockey, golf, fencing). I am very happy I attended in that district, and would send my own children through the UD system in a heartbeat.
