We came from a private school where memorization and worksheets were the norm. We are so thankful that we made the transition to UPS! Now my kids get music, art, creative writing, awesome book reports that involve their imagination, poetry, Spanish, science lab, a large playground with tons of fun things to do, hot lunch is available daily; I was worried at first about going from private to public, but now I can see that the best choice was UPS. We are completely happy with the school and the friendly administration. The students are also tested to see what level they are working with; my son was quickly finishing work, so the teacher promptly found more work for him to do that was at a higher level that he needed. So students are not left bored in class!
This school is OK. The office staff is awesome and hard working, the vice principal and principal are not very friendly or personable. I've never seen them once greet the kids at the gate in the mornings. The teachers are OK and they seem to have a good plan for children who are falling behind but there is no plan for children who need a challenge. My son is bored and unchallenged, we are switching schools next year to a school where they can address the needs of all children.
It is our first year at this school and the curriculum is diverse and the teaching techniques are wonderful. My son has learned a lot about different subjects and has grown along with his peers. Overall great school.
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.
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!
