UMS prepares each child. Their are chances to be involved and experience new activities. The atmosphere is great and welcoming to anyone who wants to be involved with the bulldog spirit. Helps your child understand the basics for college and concepts of the real world. Well worth the experience!

As an alumnus of Wright School for Girls I can applaud the conjunction of UMS with us and the quality of education and general learning is the very best I have encountered in my years as a caring parent.

Only school in town that will give your children the education and the opportunity to send your children to IVY leaque type schools

Excellent school. Very good group of teachers, parents and kids. Very good sports programs too. The school was founded in 1898 and has a very strong alumni involvement in community leadership. A good investment.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
