Founded in the late 1880's as a teaching school for the University of Denver, University Park has served its community as a fabulous learning environment for both neighborhood students and now students from across the city. University of Denver students still stay involved with the school, offering an award winning after school tutoring program. I currently have two children attending University Park and could not be happier with the community or the school staff....they are amazing!
Greatest staff, parents, kids and phenomenal parental involvment and support!!
An unrecognized treasure that is getting more known every year. The community is great! Our family loves this school!
I really appreciate the enviornment that challenges and encourages not just my granson but his classmates as well. It is a diverse and friendly school.
I love U Park because of the parent envolvement. We have a laid back, efficient PTA. Our teachers work hard and our front office is professional and courteous. Because of all our involvement in this school our enrollment is up and the students scores just get better.
UPark is a wonderful school with a great new principal, dedicated and talented teachers, and a warm and welcoming staff.
One of the reasons I love University Park so much is the support I have received for the physical education program. The parents and staff care about wellness for the whole child: physically through the belief in nutrition education and physical education, mentally throughhigh academic expectations and emotionally through bullyproofing and the use of the 'Brainwise' curriculum.
University Park Elementary is a wonderful school full of very dedicated staff, parents and great students. We have a very diverse population that we all embrace our different cultures. I am proud to be a part of this great school community.
I love University Park because of the parent support and all the great teachers!
It is the best school because of our Wellness Program. Healthy body, healthy mind!
We live within the Slavens neighborhood boundaries, but we've been 'choicing in' to UPark for 5 years now. From the very first interaction we had with the front office staff to becoming more involved in the PTA, it's been exactly the right decision.
University Park is the best school because of the everyone that works there. I have never met nicer people than at U. Park.
Great teachers, strong parental involvement in support of the goals of our principal and teachers, wonderful and diverse student population, great values (academic, personal and social) are taught to our kids .
We have a fantastic principal, Dana Williams, who works endlessly to make our school a great school. We also have devoted teachers and parents who ensure that everyday is a good day for the children; ranging from making sure they get out of the car safely through our Kiss N' Go program to devoting extra time for those kids in class who may need academic guidance in the classroom. One person may make a difference but working together, the parents, teachers and staff give the children the motivation to move mountains.
U-park is a disversified neighborhood school with educators that strive to excel students considering their individual learning mechanism and personalities.
UPark has a great sense of community, wonderful teachers and an awesome principal - Dana Williams. UPark values diversity and works to promote a high quality education for all it's students
UPark is the type of neighborhood school that gives the children not only a great education but a sense of community that seems to be lacking in many of the other schools.
University Park is a wonderful school! The students learn a great deal thanks to so many offerings (academics, art, music,P.E., after-school programs, nutritious snacks, etc.) ! The atmosphere is inviting because there is so much diversity and the students appreciate all the cultures our school represents. Parents are involved and the teachers have high expectations!
University Park loves its students. We have a diverse, bright, hard-working, talented body of children from all over the world, an extraordinarily experienced and creative faculty, a caring and dedicated staff, and a parent body that is fiercely dedicated to the health and well-being of our kids. We also have the hardest-working and best loved office staff--Allen, Deanne, and Principal Dana--a school could hope for! We have a lot of fun together and take care of each other--body, mind and spirit.
I love my kids school because it is a warm and loving environment from the office staff to the teachers. I love the diversity and the parent involvement. That is what makes U-Park great!!
