My daughter came from a few schools that definitely did not seem to have her best interests at heart. She started at UPS after the school year was already underway, and she loves it. It is such a wonderful school, and I know they treat my daughter like she is a person, not student number 148755, or the 32nd one in a class. She is very happy here, and I suggest any parent who takes their child's well being into concern, and not just their education, should look into becoming part of this school.
i love this school. there are sooo many fun,great ,nice theachwers that teach us so many things.
This is an excellent school, I'm sorry that we are moving. The teachers and administrators have been extremely conscientious and involved.
This school is one of the best schools in America and also has good learning. Something that is very exciting is that it has both English and Spanish language learning!
My child is now in 4th grade at UPS and has been there since kindergarten. We have had an amazing experience at this school. The teachers and administrators really take the time to get to know the families and understand our children's needs. The feeling when you walk on campus is warm and welcoming. I remember this from when I came on the tour before my son was enrolled. When I conference with teachers I am amazed at how much they can tell me about my own child. The administration seems to have a very open door policy and I have always felt comfortable approaching them with questions. The office staff is also warm, welcoming, and very informed. Overall amazing place!
Another great first day of school. The administration, teachers and office staff had everything perfect for our children. The best thing is that I know my children are in the best place for thier school experience! We have been here for a few years and appreciate how everyone works together for the students. Thank you UPS!
Both my children attend this school. My daughter is now going into the 2nd grade and has been attending since preschool, my son is now going into kindergarten, after 2 yrs of preschool (birthday falls after deadline). I have been very pleased with the school s efforts and the care they really display. I am a working mom and love that I can communicate with my children s teachers via e-mail. The education of your children really is a team effort and if both parents and teachers work together it makes all the difference in the world and this is what I love about this school and of course my kids now speak better Spanish than I do and I am Latina. Can t say enough!
I have a child in dual-language kindergarten this year, after attending the preschool last year. She has had an amazing year. She is reading, adding, writing creative stories, and loving going to school. Her two teachers (English and Spanish) are supportive, warm, patient, and loving. The enrichment in the arts and stellar physical education programs have also been wonderful. Parents are involved and positive.
Love this school, my daughter has attended this school for the last 3 years and has been academically successful. The teachers are amazing; they take a personal interest in their kids. P.S. Love the dual and language enrichment. my daughter is bi-lingual thanks to UPS.
I am surprised the leadership and teachers are not 5 stars! They should be 10 STARS. They are great and care about each student.
We are very happy w/ the dual language program. I am impressed with the teachers for the Kindergarten classes. The pre-school was great. I've found the right mixture of structure & freedom for my complex five year old. The test scores are not as high as other schools in the area, but what this school lacks in test preparation, it more than makes up for in diversity & cultural embracement.
I have had a combination of experiences with many challenges with staff but also excellence.
I waited 2 school years to get in, and it was worth every day! UPS is the best school I've ever had my kids in. I have one graduating high school this year as well, and this school is by far the best school with the best teachers I've ever been part of! My daughter (3rd grade) is very enthusiastic about school again, and loves UPS!
Very impressed with this school! They are certainly taking education in the right direction. If only more California schools were like this. Their enrichment programs are great!
Since transferring to UPS last September, my son has become more settled, inspired, and happy. I believe the faculty has surpassed my expectations and that each child there is being encouraged.
