My kids love the teachers and the families that are part of University Park. It is a diverse community of people who are committed to providing the best for our kids. The high level of parent involvement makes a huge difference and has enabled us to provide on-going 'extras' like full time gym, music and art. We also have an excellent band program and programs for kids with special needs.
My grandchildren attend University Park and both they and their parents have found a caring, supportive atmosphere. One of the grandchildren has a disability, and because of the climate of acceptance and understanding, she has never had a bullying or harrassment incident. High praise in this day and age!
Great academics with real-world diversity. Teachers, staff, students, parents are dedicated to academic learning in a caring environment. As a result, my two sons are better citizens and leaders, skilled in taking on challenges in their schools and on their sports teams.
It provides a truly well-rounded curriculum for the appropriate age level of its students.
Outstanding faculty, parent support, special programs. It has been an enjoyable and positive experience for my two grandchildren!
Amazing, committed teachers, wonderful parent and community support. Kids love going to school there.
U Park is a terrific community of teachers and parents. I love the diversity and the staff's committment to our students!
I love UPark because my children love going to school there. The teachers and staff are loving and caring. The parents get involved. I feel so lucky to have a place like this right in my own neighborhood. UPark gives me hope for my children's future. I feel as if I'm doing right by them, and that makes me feel secure as a parent.
I went to school there, as did all my siblings and many nieces and nephews. Now I'm sending my kids there, so that should be a pretty powerful indication of what I think of the school. It has great parent involvement, which is also a great sign of a great school.
Good community of people and parents helping the future generation to get a head start on education and to make life long friends.
everyone makes me feel welcome. It is a great place for students to learn, teachers to teach, and other staff members to work. Everyone from student to principal is treated with respect!
UP has the most amazing families and staff! Everyone is so supportive, and caring! There are many programs at Upark that just would not happen if we didn't have all the support.
I love University Park Elementary School because of the caring community in which it supports. From healthy eating, to a world view on education, and life long learning University Park promotes a spectrum positive life and academic lessons on a daily basis.
As a parent, I have made the choice to send both of my kids to UPark. The academics go above and beyond what is required of a public school, and the teachers, staff, families and community are all committed to seeing that UPark is a great place for our kids to learn and grow!
Diversity of all kinds: colors, creeds, sizes, SES and the teachers are wonderful!
The atmosphere at U-Park is dynamic, supportive, and fun. There are so many opportunities for learning beyond the standard classroom setting--such as the band. The PTA is very active and involved and the staff and teachers are wonderful! [I am a paraprofessional, in my 2nd year here.] The school is also very focused on healthy living and healthy eating, and on U-Park being a very safe place to be.
My son loves the school. He is doing very well academically, and the community is great
I have 3 children that have attended University Park Elementary School and my youngest is in 4th grade at U - park. What I absolutely love about University Park is that they have helped instill a true love of learning into my children - beyond my wildest dreams. I also love the diversity and welcoming warm atmosphere to all families
The Principal is amazing. The teachers are the best. U-Park offers Band, Music, Art Science Full time PE and Library. AMy daughter loves it
