    "Don't recommend it lack of respect , knowledge , some of the teachers are good but most of them are bad , the stars in that school are the kids so sad that they have to learn their subjects through google or YouTube math it's a big problem because their teachers don't teach good, kids get bully a lot and no consequence at all just a sad parent trying to raise my kids in a good environment and the big bullies are the teachers."

    "I am a senior at U.P & have been here since 7th grade.As a middle schooler you hate the uniforms,the staff,and all the h.w they give you.Honestly,being there 6 years has really helped me academically.Prep has helped me break out of my awkward and shy shell. U.P basically prepares you for college and the future.The staff is so friendly and willing to help you with anything & when the time comes to apply for college they help you step by step . The reason they're so strict on having good grades is because they want you to succeed.Colleges require high gpas and good grades from 9-12th.U.P offers a lot of AP and honors classes which are challenging but benefit you when it comes to college apps. All of the things they require you to do is for your benefit.The school is very diverse,EVERYONE knows each other,and its easy to make friends.I have never seen someone get bullied because of the way they look or dress,the students are very accepting of one another.The reason there is no honor roll recognition is because everyone has a high gpa , so practically everyone is on honor roll . U.P is a great school,no matter what grade level you enter in,or how you look you will fit in just fine ."

    "University Prep is the best middle school/ high school in the High Desert. They hold their students to a high standard and if they don't make it they are assigned back to the District Middle School they belong to. The Academic Program is rigorous and exacting. As their motto says, "Excellence is expected!" Besides that, the school is a safe haven. Nobody is marginalized or ostracized because of their ideas, opinions, or thoughts. They can be themselves without fear of judgement. It is an ideal school to nurture individuality in the children. I am so happy that my daughter goes to this school - she is thriving and everyday she looks forward to going. I highly recommend this school for those who transfer to the High Desert. The only drawback is acceptance is done by lottery and then the kids are evaluated based on their conduct and discipline track record as well as their grades. Really, really tough school to get into."

    "I think that if you are looking for a high quality education that challenges you greatly, you should attend this school. I am a former student of seventh grade and some of eighth grade, and I can say that the teachers really do care about you and the classes are challenging. With all the skills you developed from the hard work of the academic challenges here, you practice those skills even more and you will use all of those skills in the future for college. It may seem that from a student's point of view, the teacjers can be cruel and embarass you in front of the class, but if you would attend an ordinary middle or high school, most teachers are just waiting for their paychecks to arrive. It appears that at this school, teachers are waiting for their students' college acceptance letters to arrive when they are in the twelfth grade at this school. I think the classes and academics here are great. The athletic programs here challenge you just as much as the academics. This is a great school! If you are looking for something challenging that will lead you to success and a bright future, you should come to University Preparatory School."
