    "I have had 5 kids attend the Upper Darby Schools and they did very well. Like all school districts right now there are challenges, but this is a very good school, teachers are outstanding and the arts education is really excellent."

    "This is one ofthe worst schools. It is over crowded. The special needs program is horrible. They do not teach these children or include them in anything. The special needs teachers are horrible and most of them are set in the old school mind frame that these children cannot do anything. This school security is also horrible. As the UD police dept said before if this was a bar it would of been closed down a lone time ago. Tax dollars waisted!!!! JUST HORRIBLE and SAD."

    "I believe Upper Darby high school is not the best school for your child especially if they come from a different ethical group. Students judge other students very crucially. If a student is an honors students then this school isn't that bad, but the math teachers here make it very hard for the students forcing them to put they're entire focus in it. I have a child that goes to this school who was struggling in math but he was unable to receive any help. But my daughter was doing great but because she couldn't fit a few classes in her scheduled she decided to move down in one subject. It was only an accelerated class but she was surrounded by student that just didn't care while she had a 99 throughout the class the others had 40s. The students that are motivated do great but there are too many students that just don't care."

    "Upper Darby High School is actually a great school. The thing that makes it a failing school is the students lack of motivation. The overcrowded school results in the larger percentage of students who dont care or cant speak English which brings down the academic scoring drastically. The truth is that if your in AP or Honors classes you learn more advanced material than many other schools. Sadly, the majority of the students in UDHS are in Academic and have the worst teachers and are stuck in the largest classes. I am currently a Fresheman in Upper Darby and as far as i can see, most of the staff enjoy their jobs and teach the students. But of course, as in every school, there are teachers that don't really teach the students. The music programs are exceptional, with every musical group winning high honors and awards every year. The musicals are done at an almost professional level and are extremely well perfomed. The students at UDHS are either very proud of their school or hate it. Every student admires Tina Fey (who went to UD) and love the movie Mean Girls because it was based off of our school. Overall, Upper Darby High School is a crowded, huge but an amazing school."

    "I love the education here. Most of the classes actually make you think, which means tests are not based on memorized material. There are so so so so so many classes you can take here. Even the introductory classes have so much valuable information. This school's only flaw it is so overcrowded and large, that between classes you have 5 minutes to get to class, yet it takes more time than that because of traffic and going to our lockers. Otherwise, a 3 rating is extremely low. It should be a 6 or 7."
