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!
Respectful students. Wonderful teachers who really WANT to be there teaching our kids. A principal and administrative staff that care enough to know ever child, BY NAME. Well-rounded curriculum = well-rounded kids.
I love Urban Discovery because of it's teachers and the hard work they put into each individual student. They are personable and professional at all times and truly love their jobs.
I love that they utilize the community resources to the max. They enjoy Balboa Park every day like no other school!
I love Urban Discovery because they still believe in the arts and P.E. and because my son says it's 'the best school in the world'.
The teachers and parents are GREAT!!!! Innovative and open teachers - obvious that they love what they do! Ms. Dolores and the Principal are hands on - they know everyone's name and greet them 100% with warm smiles! The school model - learning clusters, is more about empowering students and enabling them to continue from where they are, rather than a cookie cutter structure that leaves many kids on either side disabled.
The kids love it - they talk about dance class, math games, art class, science and they even learn a little Spanish and Sign Language.
My grandson is thrilled to go to school every day and is learning a big variety of skills including dancing, sign language, art, Spanish. He's a quick learner and enjoys the challenges.
Because we have a staff and parents doing an amazing job for the kids.
We love Urban Discovery Academy because our kids are getting a great education that is not limited to the grade they are in. Best of all, the kids love school!
My son just started first grade at UDA with Miss Teeple and he loves it! I am happy with all the extra programs they offer. So far, we are very happy with Miss Teeple and this school.
Small, cozy, artistic, and has a terrific group of super motivated parents, teachers, and administrators
I love that my Son is EXCITED about learning, and he is excited to tell me about it. I couldn't ask for a better teacher, she is so open with the parents and truly cares about the children. Thank you UDA!!!!
That principal is getting things done, and her new hires, like Miss Teeple are a real shot in the arm of education.
