gpa improvements

i for one didn't do too well in my freshman and sophomore years of high school as many personal events distracted me from my academic goals. however, in my junior year i managed to maintain a 4.3 weighted in an attempt to make up for my underperformed years. would colleges, especially ucs, disregard my improvements and look at my overall gpa as a whole, or acknowledge the growth i have shown in my recent years?

They would not disregard your improvement but they'd probably also look at your GPA in a whole.

Typically when its comes to GPA, they look at both depending on how it affects the candidate. For example let's say a student with a 2.8 GPA manages to finish off with a 3.6 GPA within a year they would define take notice at that because with a student like that they'll know that the student worked hard to improve. They'd probably favour that student of a student who went from 4.3 to 3.0 so something like that. But as much as they loom at improving students they also look at overall GPA. Still using the example I gave they would favour a student who managed to maintain a 4.2 GPA over the two other candidates in my example. So you should be alright.
