    "I'm currently a senior at this school. As far as academics, this school is perfect for those wanting to challenge themselves. We are a little limited with our AP classes selection and art classes are not available. As far as teachers go, I think most of them were fantastic and genuinely cared about our education, but I have experienced some difficulties with certain math teachers who I find incompetent and though I am naturally good at math, I didn't do the best because of the poor teaching abilities of those math teachers. I find the competitive environment of the school a bit overwhelming. Despite some negatives, I really recommend this school. I came to this school because I was being bullied at my former middle school. When I came here, I was welcomed and never have I felt I was being bullied. Keep in mind that this school does have a bit of a problem with drama on social media, but I find it unavoidable. Overall, I'm generally happy attending this school, but it is stressful."

    "Overall it is a good school. Academically it does enough to prepare you for college as far as work load and giving you an idea on how to manage time and balance school and home life, etc. The biggests problem would probably be that we don't have buses, resulting in traffic in the mornings."

    "While the school is very good and probably the best in the High Desert, it doesn't have a lot of different classes or electives. For example, it doesn't have an art class or cooking class, and it doesn't have some AP classes. The thing I like about this school is that its relatively small so the teachers are able to focus on individuals students but the students should speak up when they need help. The clubs are pretty cool but some clubs need more students. The only thing I know about the sports in the school and dislike is that for the boys their isn't volleyball; and there are some sports that aren't played like football, lacrosse, swimming, etc so if you play any of those sports, don't come to UP because they don't have; but I've heard that you could create a sports team if you have enough players."

    "This is overall a great school. The counselors there should be replaced, they aren't very much help. The AP statistics teacher should also be replaced. The majority of his class is failing, this shows a lack of efficiency on his part. Other than this my daughter has done extremely well and is proud to call this her school."

    "I am a sophomore at University Preparatory. I have attended this school since the seventh grade. It is an outstanding school and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to be pushed academically. It is challenging to compete against others who are as advanced as I am, but the teachers here are excellent and are always willing to help. My experience here has been great. Since my seventh grade school year, I've known that I wanted to attend a university in California. University Preparatory's classes are a challenge but I know they will help me in the future and prepare me for college. For my junior year in high school, I want to challenge myself and get more involved."
