    "I graduated from UGHS in '05. I have moved on to earn a B.S. I didn't receive much attention at this school. I taught myself nearly everything. I don't know if the teachers that I had are still working at this school, but the ones I had really didn't show any attention nor did they try to help. I received more help from professors at the University I attended. I really hope that it has changed."

    "I think this school is very overrated. It's superficial. I came from a disadvantaged school towards the end of the year knowing the good status and high standards expected of me and was ready to be pushed to better my GPA. However, when I arrived nobody gave me any information. I never met any of the staff, never got a rule book or agenda, and was constantly scolded for things I knew nothing about. It was a complete shock and nobody made me feel welcome. The students looked down on me, or just blatantly ignored me. My grades plummeted and thanks to no help from the teacher, even when sought out. I was made to feel stupid and inferior to everyone. Disgusting and disrespectful."

    "As a parent I have a few issues with this school, granted it has been years since I have been to high school, but when does it become acceptable to lock bathroom doors or suggest to a child that if he/she does not use a pass to the bathroom, locker, etc there lowest grade can be dropped. According to history using the restroom to relieve bodily functions is natural and normal and should not be discouraged. Also, what is going on with online classes? My child was homeschooled for 3 years, I made the decision to matriculate her into a public school to interact with TEACHERS and students, not online classes with no assistance. How was it possible for the school to have French last year with a teacher and this year no french teacher?? If a child wants to take 4 years of this language should it be acceptable that the child has to do online for 3 years. My child was referred for Honors French, surely that implied with a teacher, she is not in Honors French though. I don't even want to talk about the PE class, I can't mention how many times I was told, oh we didn't do anything today. And my child receives little assistance from counselor."

    "Pretty great school. Graduated from there in 2011. Sports teams are pretty up and down. Football team was not great while I was there. However, the Naval Junior Reserves Officer Training Corps is one of the best in the entire nation. Consistently competing in all areas in national competitions. Also, academic are pretty good. Constantly getting pushed to achieve more and take AP classes."
