This is my childrens first year at Univ. Park and I have found that the school work (in comparison to other elementry schools we have experienced) is more challenging and at a higher level of actual assignments,(larger) than that we have known. I like that the expectations and challenges are progressed. It gives them reason to keep moving towards a greater knowledge and excellance in the work witch will roll over into their actual living experiences. On the other end of the spectrum, I have never experienced and have seen and heard such need for immediate, urgent education and resorces in school bullying and safety. I have witnessed on a daily basis, hitting , teasing,name calling, intimidations, sexual references from children 1st to 5th grade. I have heard a friend of my sons talk about running away secreatly and have passed it on yet he continues to speek of actual event.
We have been University Park Elementary School for 6 years (between our two kids, so far) and it has been an amazing academic and social experience for our children. The teachers truly love what they do, as eveidenced by how they run the classroom. My kids are challenged academically and have high self esteem. This school truly supports the successes of all children. I am always touched when I see 5th graders helping the younger kids. I see that kind of display daily. This school is a safe, nurturing, warm place to be. It is a place where kids really get to be kids without compromising strong academics. Kids leave this school extremely prepared for middle school and with a love for learning. We couldn't ask for more.
