I couldn't be prouder to be a part of the University Park community and staff. Dana Williams is an amazing, caring, knowledgeable leader and it radiates throughout the building.
I love this school. I learn so much in every subject. Each teacher teaches me so much every day. I love to write and every year I have been here I have learned something spectacular. Each teacher is so marvelous. They teach every subject with passion. Every staff member and teacher have made me fill with glee. The school is so friendly. I moved to this school from a private school with my twin brother. He LOVES gym. I do to. My favorite subject is well every single one!!! The teachers make boring subjects into something great. On my very first day of Upark I made several new friends so did my brother. The principal is SO nice!!!!!! She takes every idea into her heart. If you are thinking about going to this school GO!!! There is a very challenging challenge program and several after school activities. I am in fifth grade and am extremely gloomy that I will be leaving Upark. Yet I hope the other kids will be moving up into the next fabulous years. Upark makes very kid feel special.cthis school is extremely unique, I LOVE IT!!!!
Our family loves the Wellness Program at UPark, We weren't there when it was started, but it is really nice to come to a school where healthy food and exercise is the focus. They have fresh fruits and vegetables for snacks, healthy food at celebrations, teachers don't use candy to reward kids, and birthdays are non-food celebrations. The run program before school in the morning is cool and my kids love it. I think it is once or twice a year for many weeks and the kids can earn tokens that they love. This school is definitely different from other schools and really a special place.
We moved to the U Park neighborhood 2 years ago and we are so happy with the community and the school. We have had excellent teachers and we have met wonderful families. Parent involvement is widespread and heartfelt.
my family and i are looking to relocate back to denver in the next year. we have a 10 year old and a 7 year old so we are looking for an excellant elementary and middle school. thank you
My daughter has moved on to middle school now, an UPark gave her a great foundation.
As a family who choiced in to UPark 4 years ago, our decision is consistently reinforced and confirmed by our son's success as a student, and the wonderful community at this school.
UPark is unique in that it serves to educate for the health of the whole child. It advocates character formation, healthy choices, civility, connection to community, in addition to cultivating academic skills.
I love the community feeling with so many wonderful kids, staff, and parents.
We love Upark - what an amazing community of educators, administrators and families. Not only has my son received a great education, he's loved every minute of it.
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.
