We are new to the school and while there is a lot to learn I have been happy. I appreciate the time and attention given to the students. I am interested in seeing how the year progresses but at this point I am very please.

The school's administrators and staff have shown a lack of ability to discipline on an individual basis and therefore cause all students to suffer intense consequences for the bad behavior of a few. Typically the consequenses are related to the administration's fear of a bad appearance when prospective parents and students come to camput to visit. The students that are already enrolled are not considered in decisions to the extent that prospective students and parents are considered. The tuition has increased for 3 years in a row, the same number of years the newest Principal has been in charge. The Principal is also the President so there is no separation of duties or thought processes. This is an overall disappointing experience for many of the girls as many of the social events are dictated to them rather than decided democratically through the student body.

My daughter graduated in May 2007, and we were very pleased at the education she recieved. She is very prepared for college and is doing very well (Pre-Med). The sports programs are wonderful and the staff, from the teachers to the coaches to the principal are top notch and genuinely care about the girls. Parent participation is required and fun.

I have two daughters that graduated from UHS. The oldest is getting a second degree in nursing and the other is graduating in June from UC Santa Cruz and will be going to Medical School. I cannot say enough great things about this school! I had my doubts about an all girl school but if I had it to do all over again I would. Both my girls cannot thank us enough for sending them there! I also volunteered there for 8 years and made some very good friends.

I have a freshman attending this school. She contually explains that she is bored. I get the impression that she is not engaged in most of her classes. She is a straight A student in the hardest classes offerred for her grade. I also do not see that much homework coming home. One other issue I have with the school is that confidentiality seems to be lacking. I would talk to an adult about a complaint or concern and it would inevitably get back to my daughter compromising the communication that we have as mother and daughter. Lastly, it should be noted that financial aid is minimal and does not come close to meeting a family's need. Yet this school is constantly fund raising and asking for money!

Both of my daughters went to this school. It provided both an excellent education and a great high school experience. When speaking to kids who had been at Ursuline and at a local public high school, they uniformly reported that they found the public school much easier and received better grades at the public school with less work. My daughters were very prepared for college and have been successful in their college eductation. One of them received significant scholastic scholarships. Ursuline also provided top status in a number of sports, such as soccer and basketball. It offered a wide range of extracurricular activities which helped make the students, who came from a relatively wide geographic area, cohesive. The school requires parent involvement.

Ursuline is a very caring, personable school. They have a very challenging curriculum and their sports are top notch. The arts are an area of some growth need but they have made a commitment to advance there. The administration is friendly and approachable.

Our daughter is a Freshman at UHS. We couldn't ask for a better environment, academically and spiritually. We have watched her blossom into a confident young lady this year. The faculty truly cares about each girl at their school. Our reason for sending our daughter to Ursuline was not just for the academics but equally important is her overall safety and well being and at Ursuline she feels completely safe and respected among her peers and teachers. The teachers at Ursuline and the administration have been nurturing and supportive of every girl on campus. They are teaching the girls to look beyond their own community and branch out into the broader community and get involved by providing service to those less fortunate, the elder community and with younger students.
