Urban Discovery Academy offers all of the things they are taking out of public shcools these days. In addition to a rigorous academic program they offer P.E. 4x per week, performing arts, art and even Spanish classes at all grade levels. I am over the moon about this school and my son is too!
My kids now love to go to school. That says it all for me! Many thanks to the wonderful Teachers, Staff and Volunteers.
UDA teachers, staff, parents and most of all UDA students are passionate about learning.
Urban Discovery Academy is an outstanding school that focuses on the individual student. The teachers are outstanding, the focus on the arts and bi-monthly field trips is something you will not find in most schools. I highly recommend UDA!
Urban Discovery Academy is a one of a kind school filled with passionate teachers that are determined to provide every child with a rigorous and well-rounded education!
Tremendous, Hard-working staff and parent group!! We are a brand new (2 years old) school full of energetic students. We are project based, field trip, urban-driven and fabulous!
This is a good well rounded school with a complete education. Reading, writing, math, art, Spanish, Performing Arts and PE. Good dedicated core of staff, teachers and parents.
It's wonderful to see a group of people who really love to teach, and the proof is watching these children love to learn. I never seen so many children look so happy to be at school.I am very honered that I got to meet all of them and very proud of my daughter, Cindy Moser!!!!
dedication to the arts, parental involvement, staff is committed to a quality learning experience
The teachers and staff at this school are so dedicated to my children as individual bodies and thinkers and their learning has rocketed as a result - it is such an amazing difference from past experiences - I wish all people could have such positive experiences with their school! And thanks to all the parents for being so supportive!!!
Our school is so committed to its students and families. Teachers are so hard working and talented. The principal is the heart of the school and its biggest advocate. Learning is valued and broaded to span the urban community that surrounds the school. There is a vibrant, alive feeling within the physical building created by design and the energy contained within its walls. My daughters are eager to go to school each day...that is invaluable!
Our school educates the child as a whole. They have PE, Art, Spanish as a foreign language, and a Family Tree which is a group of children from all the grade levels that gets together once a month. This teaches them to interact, learn, and respect each other.
Urban Discovery Academy is an amazing school. The teachers are dedicated and excited every single day! Urban Discovery Academy uses hands - on project based learning to teach students. We also believe in educating the entire child; our students receive Physical Education every day, Art, Singing, Acting, Dancing, Spanish, Library and Computer Lab. We went from 97 students are first year to 197 students our second year with an API score of 835!!
The educators are dedicated to your child and they are receptive to what you have to say good or bad. The principal is wise beyond her years and her leadership demonstrates that. I feel comfortable entrusting my child to this school and all it has to offer. I look forward to a successful year. My child scored outstanding on the Star Exam and that is not only a reflection of the home but the classroom and the assistance that was provided.
My daughter loves her teacher, friends, and even her homework. And as a parent, I ve never been this proud. Thanks UDA!
It is rare to find a school that emphasizes the 'whole child' and regards the child as a unique individual rather than a one-size-fits all approach. I love that there is P.E everyday, art, performing arts, a library and a great computer lab. My son LOVES his teachers and his class!
UDA cares about the whole child and EVERY child; it just feels like family. As a diverse urban school they set high academic expectations but also value PE, Art, Drama and Technology. The teachers are so passionate and creative!
Academically, it has all been said. The school's reputation its and quality of educators speak for themselves. But what I appreciate even more are the details--for example, the principal knows the name of every student and parent, as well as what car they drive. Every child is educated, safe, and genuinely cared for.
