Voices from our School Community

Lisandro Velazquez, Class of 2020

“At first, I was hesitant about going to UP because I didn't know anyone there.  But I didn't feel alone for long.  I met unforgettable teachers and made lifelong friends.  They helped me so much and I learned so much from them.  It felt like a home away from home."

Madison Howard, Class of 2027

“The community here at UP is unlike no other. Aside from the amazing teachers that see your potential and push you to the best of your ability, you would love the trips because you get to spend time with your friends outside of school and inside of school too. This school is perfect and I really love it here!”

Madison Howard


Mr. Henry, Living Environment Teacher

"I am one of the pioneers of UP!  The staff is very supportive of each other, always willing to share new and effective instructional practices. In addition, having worked with so many students at UPREP over the years, I must say that students develop bonds with us as educators that last for years even after they have graduated from UPREP."

Mr. Henry

Britney Anderson, Class of 2019

“Coach always shouted, 'Finish strong!"  Those words miraculously pop into my head whenever I need them most.  Whether on the court or in academic setting, the rules of the game remain the same: Give it your all because it is all you can really do."

Britney Anderson

Fortune Akinsiku, Class of 2026

"The things I love about Uprep and much more than I can mention.  The staff and teachers are the best!  They all they put so much time and energy into teaching us for making sure we understand."
