Elementary school is great, Middle school program needs work, not well organized. Teachers are under paid & unwilling to spend time with students after school
This is a great Charter school and my daughter loves it. I love the fact that their is respect for each person involved from the teachers, parents and especially the kids!
My daughter started Kindergarten this year at UDA and we all absolutely love it! They have a wonderful teaching staff. Everyday my daughter tells me how much she loves her teacher and she is genuinely excited about school. She is learning so much and enjoying all of it. I can't say enough good things about this school!
I love UDA because they are a diverse and caring group of individuals working collectively to see the children succeed and have fun doing it! It makes me happy to hear my son say how much HE loves going to school there!
My daughter just started 1st grade at U.D.A, coming from a Montessori Preschool and Kinder program. She has transitioned so smoothly into 'public school'. But believe us, this is no 'ordinary school'! The project-based, small group (cluster) learning is fantastic and engaging. My daughter comes home excited and full of creativity, energized and truly joyful about learning. The school curriculum has P.E. , drama, Spanish, art as all part of the school day!
The pedagogy of this wonderful little school believes in the whole child. I am thrilled my 2nd grader attends UDA!!
I love this school. There are many oppurtunities for my children to use their creativity. I love picking up my children in the afternoon to hear, 'Mom I had the best day today!' It's a joy and a priveledge.
Urban Discovery Academy is a brand new school - 2 years old - but has the heart of a school with a long rich history. Teachers readily use technology to communicate with parents - email and newsletters almost daily. I know everyday what my child learned that day and ways that I can help support that learning at home. The school is organized and filled with caring parents and staff alike. The curriculum is creative and engaging. Our family feels so fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of The Urban Discovery Academy.
They are what a school should be....what I remember as a child ~ enjoying going to school with all the extra's ~ they are about the kids and focus on what is best for them in each and every way they can ~ they tap into who they are as individuals.....and help them grow!!!
the whole child approach to education is the perfect fit for my nephew!
I love this school and the whole child approach. They are the happiest kids around. Happy and confident kids make excellent students.
They have a great program where the kids are happy and learning lots.
I love the fact that my children have more opportunities offered to them at UDA than they ever had at their last public school. The teachers and other faculty members truly care about the children. Best of all, my children are excited about attending school everyday. Thanks UDA.
Urban Discovery Academy employs a thoughtful pedagogy that provides a balanced education and fosters pro-social behavior in all the students.
Each child receives a lot of individual attention. The staff are all very pleasant, helpful and enthusiastic and really want each child to be successful. I also apprecaite the fact that they offer art, musis, dance etc. An Amazing school!!
We love the whole child approach to education, and they do a great job there! They don't teaching to the test, they give the children a whole education. They nurture and inspire. Our son comes home everyday with a breath of knowlegde that includes more than English and Math. In 2nd grade, he can at least tell you who the 1st president of the United States was. He has a good sense of geography, music, art and science. He takes physical education daily, and visits museums on a weekly basis. He gets a well rounded, inspiring education!
