Open Quote I am a 10th grader and this is my first year in UP. Although I have just been there for a month, I really want to say, I love my UP!---All the people in UP are really really nice and friendly. And almost all the students are motivated to study!--I like my classes, my friends, and my teachers. I also like our principal and our vice principal, who really care about us and help us a lot. Anyway, I will exert myself and do my best! I won't let you down, my UP! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
