Upperman High School proudly opened on August 22, 1959, as a tribute and living educational memorial to Dr. Harry Lee Upperman and Baxter Seminary. Dr. Upperman's philosophy of education is still alive and well at Upperman High School today.
The trophy case in the front hall is filled with trophies and memories of the school's past academic achievements and success in athletic competitions. However, the most important mementos of the past in this trophy case are the four inspirational words above it, the Upperman Motto: "Truth, Honor, Loyalty, Service." These unforgetable words, and all that they have meant throughout our school's history, are a large part of what we are and what we hope to become in the future.
On January 6, 2003, the new Upperman High School opened it's doors for the first time. The former UHS campus is now home to a new 5-8 middle school named Cornerstone Middle.
