I'm a sophomore and it's my second year at Uniontown High school. I couldn't love it more! The people are great, the teachers are extremely helpful, and the school is on it's way to looking beautiful. No matter who you are, you can fit in somewhere! After reading some of the harsher reviews, i can tell you that yes, this school will have it's fair share of bullies, preps, and jerks, but thats EVERY school people, not just UHS. No, it's not perfect but name one school that is? After one year of taking honors and academic classes I realized that I had a world of information in the palm of my hand and i could do something great with it! Because of the support from teachers and all the extra curricula's that are offered to us, I now know that I can make my dreams a reality along with everyone els who attends and applies themselves. In my opinion, if you aren't achieving at this school, it's your own fault. Don't try to blame anyone or anything els.

I'm now a senior at UHS and i love it!! I would rather go here then any where around, LH and AG u get judged as soon as u walk through the door, at uniontown u don't u can befriend anyone u want as long as u are nice. And not once since ive been there has someone gotten jumped or anything, yes a few fights here and there, but there are fights at every school!! and i love those teachers they teach u like grown ups so when u leave this high school you are not out there acting like u have no idea wht u are doing they prepare u for everything!! Yes they will be your friend but they get the respect they deserve and its better than yellin at the students teaching them like they are still in junior high!!

I Love UHS, im a freshmen coming from Ben Franklin and Menallen. There are so many great/fun classes to take at UHS. Plus there is all kinds of people from different states, countries...all over the world. You get to interact with kids with different beliefs and religions. The teachers are great minus a few. There so many classes to choose from. Plus theres alot to go to the Vo-Tech for if you dont want to go to college or arent college bound. I wouldnt go to another school district ever. The sports are great, theres so much school spirit! Apart from the school needing remodeled some I think is 100% great.

Uniontown high school is not really a bad place if you have frinends and fit in. There are kids here that get seriously picked on and their lives made miserable. But as a student I believe that poeple need to stop worring about a new school and NEED to start worring about students and how they are treated and for teachers to help those kids and not to just ignore it like they do now.

this school is sad, i don't think us teens should have to go, aren't teachers supposed to be strict? their not supposed to be our best friends...we're supposed to get yelled at if we disrupt class, or disrespect a teacher, no you jus get the 'box' ISS or you jus get yelled at. in ISS all you do is sleep, and getting yelled at does NOTHING. this school, needs to take control, before the students take control, its scarey going to school, when you don't know if someone if going to jump you. or if they are going to start a nasty rumor about you. why are kids violent and mean?

This school is literally falling apart. This is a sorry school, and no child should have to be tortured by going to this school.

As a recent graduate from the Uniontown Area School District, I found myself ill prepared for college and have had to relearn nearly everything taught over high school. The school promotes under achievement and consistently has low scores in average SAT's and PSSA's. The athletics programs are its only redemption. But most people go to school for an education. The school district needs more language(only offers Spanish, German, and French), and art programs. UASD desperately needs to improve its history and social sciences departments. In many courses (history, english, social studies, physical sciences) from 1st grade through senior year, I was consistently taught the same material each year. To any parents looking to choose a school in the county please look at Frazier, Southmoreland, and Laurel Highlands. Elementary schools have been using books that my parents used in the 70's while the football field is brand new. Focus priorities please!

This assessment is not only written as a parent but as a former student of this district. The qualtiy of education obtained here is to say the least, inadequate. It's time to fight for our children. Don't allow this situation to continue.

I am a parent of three former students of Uniontown Area High School who received an exceptional education for a small middle class community. All three went on to complete their higher educations and are now extremely successful. Exceptional areas of education at UAHS are advanced languages, math and sciences and the vocational tech school.
