Our Mission Statement: We, the Upper Darby High School faculty, administrators, and staff, are committed to empowering all learners to acquire the knowledge and skills to achieve their full potential in an environment that supports our comprehensive and challenging educational program.

This year, UDHS celebrates 110 years of educating the youth of Upper Darby. Today's comprehensive high school is far different from the high school in 1895. In 2005, over 800 students will graduate; in 1896, only five students graduated. Our current faculty numbers nearly 250, whereas the Class of 1896 had only one faculty member, Miss Elisabeth D. Turner. UDHS is the oldest high school in Delaware County and one rich in tradition and history.

Upper Darby High School shows a commitment to academic excellence and preparation for college, to athletic achievement, to enrichment in the arts, to placement in the work force, and to providing a variety of educational experiences to meet the needs of a diverse student population. There is a program for every student at UDHS, the largest high school in the county.

Academically, Upper Darby High School's rich curriculum features traditional academic courses and a wide variety of elective offerings, including Engineering Drafting, Horticulture, Computers in Art, and Baking and Confections. A wide variety of extra-curricular offerings enrich the students' experiences.
