I think it's a great school, my son attended 6th grade and is now in 7th he hasn't had any problems getting along with his peers, the teachers their are encouraging, office staff is warm except for the attendance clerk Sheryl she seems to exude an energy that she's either not happy with life or her job. I have no plans to change his school and hope he will go to Enoch for high school. One concernin matter is that I just found out today that in April of this year a student mother had jumped on one of the students and there wasn't a phone call or letter sent out. Google Ustach fight and you'll see it.

I am excited that the 2008 school year is about to begin. My son and daughter enjoy Ustach very much and can't wait to see their classes.

Ustach is a fun and great experience for my child. This year (2008, her 6th grade year) has taught her to work, but have fun. She was in the honors classs , taught by Mrs. Roman who is an exceptional teacher.

I work for the district, I am not a teacher but I interact with the students at practically every site on a daily basis. I'm not going to defend the administration at this school, they have issues, no question about it but a signifigant portion of the blame for the behavior of the children must lie with the parents. Ustach does not have just a few bad apples, they have a bunch! They are far and away the worst behaved, most ill mannered, spoiled brats in the entire district.

Our son has attended Ustach since 6th grade. Each year we continue to have nothing but a bad experience. The Principal stays so 'neutral' he is ineffective. Ultimately my son has suffered the consequences. If you want save yourself a lot of grief and frustration do not send your children to Ustach. Sincerely, Unhappy @ Ustach

I just graduated from Ustach in June, and...It was okay, overall, I guess. I didn't like some aspects of the school, but I learned. Some. Also, for two years, I didn't have a stable position filled as a math teacher. It made it harder to learn with different methods.

My daughter went to this school for 3 years and it was a constant struggle to get her the help she needed. There were many discipline problems at the school that administration did not address. While there were some good teachers they lacked the back up from administration. There were no programs in place for students who need extra help.

My 2 kids have really flourished at Ustach, thanks to the teachers there and the many after school programs offered.

My son attends 6th grade here, and I have no respect for his teacher, and the principal. They do not care about the students, they take no responsibility in helping the students, everything is left up to the student to remember. It's definately not a good way to migrate them into 7th-8th grade.

Overall good. PE is pretty good, as is Computers. Social Studies and Science pretty good. For Math, there was a shuffle of substitute teachers, making it hard to learn. Language Arts, teacher had little control over students, making it hard to learn.
