Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree
Submitted by a community member · October 23, 2016
teachers are amazing and have a perfect balance of being hard and encouraging.

Amount of homework: Agree
Submitted by a community member · October 23, 2016
Kids are challenged through rigerous academics including heavy homework. They show the children how to maximize their time management for homework and studying. I wish I had this training in my youth.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree
Submitted by a community member · October 23, 2016
Bullying behavior happens everywhere but our experience at upland, it's handled quickly and swiftly. In addition all students are given strategies to minimize this behavior and situations are quickly resolved.

About this school

Why Upland? Because of the unique elements of our curriculum Because of our full participation philosophy, and our “Four A’s” Because of our commitment to finding the spark in each child and to helping every child learn how he/she learns best Because of our beautiful country campus Because of our small classes and dedicated faculty who care deeply about children. But mostly because of the spirit and values that we live every day in our classrooms, our athletic fields and our art studios Because we educate the whole child with the belief that a bright future cannot rest on an incomplete foundation And because we believe that our students never leave Upland; it is always a part of them, and they are always a part of us. Welcoming Setting When people first drive onto Upland’s campus, they often tell us their first impression is sense of belonging. Surrounded by our beautiful 23 acres of green fields and woods, a nurturing faculty works with students, and a lifetime of learning begins. Full Participation At Upland we structure each day around the “Four A’s,” the concept defining our program. Our first “A,” Attitude, is about positive relationships and consideration of others and is based on our motto “Understanding, Trust and Responsibility.” Attitude informs the other three “A’s,” which are Academics, Arts, and Athletics. The second “A,” the academic program, provides a strong foundation for further education. The final two “A’s,” the arts and athletic programs, are designed to provide opportunities for students to explore and develop their talents. Young people at Upland learn about themselves through the work they do in and out of the classroom. By requiring participation in all aspects of school life, students gain experiences that can awaken in them passions that were previously unacknowledged.
