    "I have a feeling that students who made a bad comment on this site were people who got kicked out because they were not able to achieve the GPA requirement. Few days ago, I spoke to one of the parents whose kid is still there. She said that half of her kid's class were kicked out because they couldn't handle the rigorous training. My kid just got accepted and 'am looking forward bringing my kid in there everyday! :)"

    "The teachers are great, so are most of the administration. But the school has a lot of discrimination, and it s not racial or sexist. The school is run by the popular kids, I know that sounds really stupid, but its true. I attend U.P. since 7th grade, and if your popular you ll get away with a lot, but if you re not good luck. There is also the lack of extracurricular classes. To get into a good college you need to be more than grades, and at U.P. thats all you ll be is grades. There also might not be fights,but kids get bullied verbally and nothing usually gets done about it. The school is great from the outside, but from a students point of view I hated it, being at U.P. sucked, and I am a great student. I loved the teachers and most of the students, but this school gets put last with funding and the staff has to work with basically nothing. U.P. is no better than Victor High or Apple High, its a normal high school, but the kids hide the bad things they do so much better. U.P. is not exempt from sex in the bathrooms, or getting high there either. U.P. has bad kids too, none of them get caught though. So don t send your kid here just because its safer, because it s really not."

    "The worst thing about this school is the location...and the fact that the VVUHSD refuses to put any $ into improving the site because they don't have to. The kids at UP are, for the most part, self motivated, bright kids who are planning on attending college after high school. I LOVE the uniforms and fact that rules are enforced. There is no gang banger slackers because that garbage is not tolerated. Two thumbs up for UP students, staff and leadership. I would highly recommend this school as an alternative for those who want their kids to learn in an environment that encourages kids to strive for more than mediocrity."

    "The best thing about UP are the teachers. Everything else is mediocre, even the students."
