Starting our second year with UHE. We love the atmosphere there. It is fun yet structured. So many of the other employees and teachers say hi to my daughter even though I do not know them personally. Very friendly, caring. Strong academic program. Very pleased!

We are new to the Jonesboro area in our hometown my daughter had a wonderful preschool teacher and now that we are at UHE God has blessed us with another wonderful teacher a Kindergarten teacher named Mrs. Doggett to entrust our precious little girl with. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased. The principal is also very involved with the children and I really like it when the principal actually knows what is going on in the school. He actually takes the time to smile and greet each child. Two thumbs up to a Terrific school!!!

This school is wonderful.We visited all of the surrounding schools districts before enrolling our son in this school. We are so thankful and blessed to have him with the most wonderful first grade teacher Ms. Douglas. My son has grown so much. He does not want to miss a day of school, even when he is sick. The principal is approachable and very involved with parents as well as the students. Other City of Jonesboro schools should model this school.

I am a second year parent at the school. I have a 2nd grader that transfered in last year and a kindergartner who was enrolled this year. I am satisfied with the school as a whole. I still have a lot to learn about the school and the teachers. I can say that my children both feel very comfortable with the teachers and staff.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
