A Message From Our Principal

Upper Lake High School is a small, rural high school located in Northern California, Lake County. Here at Upper Lake High, we encourage students to be involved and seek out programs of interest.  We have a very dedicated staff that enourages and supports all students in a variety of academic programs that include AP courses in English, history, art and science.  We offer a variety of honors courses and an extensive ROP/Technology program that includes Robotics.  We have the county's top Academic Decathlon team, and our students continuously compete at State events in FFA and compete in county events in music.  We will again offer the Mock Trial program through the County.  Upper Lake High offers programs in music, art and foreign language.  There is something for everyone at ULHS!

In the 2016-2017 school year, ULHS will continue to offer students an opportunity to be involved in AESA, a California Partnership Academy.  This Academy focuses on Alternative Energy Sustainable Agriculture (AESA), and is a four-year program that will provide our students with an opportunity to further their education in this field and prepare them for entry level employment.

We offer a variety of programs for students to get involved outside of the classroom as well.  We compete in athletics, fielding teams in football, soccer, volleyball, cross country, wrestling, basketball, baseball, softball and track.  Our students can also get involved by serving as an officer in ASB (Associated Student Body) or become an active member in a number of clubs on campus.  For a small school, we have a lot to offer!  Please come visit us in beautiful Upper Lake, California.
