I graduated 2 years ago, and I found the teachers and learning environment very inspiring. I loved the small community, extracurricular activities, and everything the school had to offer! It's quaint and comfy. The academics were good, too.

I have a son who just graduated from UPHS, with grades in the top 10% of his class. He also has Asperger's syndrome. I really can NOT say enough good about this school. They treated my son with respect and great caring. He went from being a boy that was withdrawn and shy to becoming a young man who made friends and many accomplishments - even going on to college. I myself graduated from this school and I absolutely love the school, teachers, & staff. You will be hard-pressed to find a school as great as Upper Perk!

Overall Upper Perk is a great school- however the ratio of academic students to those that don't really care is frightening. The school has no honors track, and only weights AP courses, which provides no motivation for students to challenge themselves in the 'A' classes meant to be accelerated. A safe learning environment- funding distribution is sometimes questionable. The top students 'run' the school in that they are the active and heads of nearly every program and organization which gives the school's programs a solid foundation. Overall a good school - I'll be proud to call UP my alma mater.

We are very fortunate to have the funding we do, so we have new books, computers, sports equipment and just a clean and structurely safe school. Most of the teachers are very helpful and are willing to work more with you if you don't understand something. The only problem I've ever had is with some of the assistant principals and their dicipline stragedys. Sometimes you just have to wonder how safe us as students and as your children really are. Overal, upper perk is a great school and for the most part it is safe.

I recently moved into the area, I have 2 daughters that attend Upper Perk HS, So far it has been a wonderful experience for my daughters and myself. The interaction with the teachers and parents is impeccable. We moved from Phila. Knowing that my daughters are safe now when they go to school, and not fearing violence, is an unexplainable feeling. I feel very lucky to have been able to escape Phila with everyone in 1 piece.. Thank You to the wonderful staff at Upper Perk.. You made my daughters transfermation very easy..
