Upland Hills School

  • Upland Hills School, founded in 1971, is an independent school community whose purpose is to educate pre high school children.
  • Our aim is to discover and respect the uniqueness of every child.
  • Upland Hills School is a place where community comes first.
  • Our work is centered on the idea that every child is born a genius and that the true function of education is to draw out that genius.
  • We have worked to create an environment where childhood is protected, nurtured, and defended.
  • A place where children can be inspired and where learning to understand is at the heart of all instruction.
  • We strive to create a sense of belonging, a sense of responsibility, and a sense of self-knowing.
