Each year, teachers give HEF Awards to students in a variety of categories, including outstanding academics, most improved, and outstanding citizenship. These awards, sponsored by HEF, allow the teachers to recongize their students’ outstanding abilities.



The National Honors Society is a community service club both on and off campus which allows students to take leadership positions throughout the school. NHS participates in many activites off campus including the Autism Awareness Fair, Scary-A-Fair, Operation Chirstmas Fund and they host a ball for the local senior citizen’s home.


National History Day

National History Day makes history come alive for our students by engaging them in the discovery of the historic, cultural and social experiences of the past. Through hands-on experiences and presentations, students are able to inform the present and shape the future. NHD inspires students through exciting competitions and transforms teaching through project-based curriculum.


Science Fair

Each year, the Upland High School Science Department holds a science fair. The science fair is an opportunity for students to choose a topic in science that interests them. Many teachers assign science fair projects, and the best of these projects continue to compete in county, state, and national competitions.
