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.
My nephew really loves his school and is sooo excited to share his daily events.
My nephew loves his school and learns a great deal every day. He enjoys his daily experiences.
It is said that we can know a person by the fruit that they bear..this can be applied also by the company they keep, as well as the enviroment in which they learn. My family has excelled from the accademics and staff of this academy. Let it continue to grow.
A small school with a big heart that continually exceeds expectations in raising money, in providing weekly classes in arts, music, dance; in building computer labs, providing spanish, making PE an integral part of the day, and in the unique enrichment programs like fencing or sewing...most of all in hiring stellar teachers. I would not have my child anywhere else.
UDA offers a wide variety of educational opportunities to every student. Our daughter is extremely happy at this school! We are grateful she is able to attend one of the most awesome schools in San Diego Ca.
