This school is wonderfully diverse, and has a student lead learning model rich with project based learning. I highly recommend it!

Administration is not accountable yet they expect the kids to be held accountable. They do not treat each child the same and there are instances of bias when it comes to race and ethnicity. Children are not given the chance to improve and are not given the help that they may need in order to succeed. This school does not provide enough supervision for the children, and this seems to be a result of adding so many students to the facility within one year.

This is an amazing school where students feel valued and are encouraged to succeed through problem solving and individualization. We waited years to get in, and are so thrilled to have our children here. The teachers are wonderful and caring, and each day my child can't wait to see what is next at school. His 3rd/4th grade teacher, Ms. B. is the best we've seen, and we are sad she won't be his teacher next year. I hope with the expansion the school retains its commitment to the children, rather than simply a test score.

This is the best school I have ever been to. The teachers are amazing and they are willing to work with kids to help them out. The school has challenged me but I am able to excel. I am so glad I came to this school!

Our family is new to University (high school), and we've got nothing but positive comments to make about all the teachers, administrators and coaches we've met. We're impressed with the available curriculum and academic performance, but most important of all, our son is excited about attending University.

I love University Schools because they have great teachers who are very dedicated to the children and their job. I also love this school because they teach children how to be independent learners. Three times a year the children have to prepare a PLP, a personalized learning plan. It means that the children choose a subject, study this subject in depth, and then do an oral presentation about it in front of their class. It is wonderful because it teaches children public speaking. It also gets them ready for college and interview situations later in life. My children love University Schools and are happy to go there every day. They are excited to learn and go to school every day!

A great multi-age community that fosters self-directed and motivated learning.

The elementary curriculum is well balanced with a focus on literacy and content areas. I particularly like that the school offers Spanish as a second language, art, P.E., and music. My child's teacher is very creative and effectively integrates technology in many content areas. The principal is very attentive to parental concerns and is well-liked by the children.

University is a wonderful school. Its mission, to me, seems to be focussed more on fostering a learning and growing environment; on creating a love for learning and an expectation that you will learn, rather than just pushing studnets along or teaching to the CSAP. The teachers are truly gifted and dedicated, and if they don't make the cut, they are not invited back. Parental involvement is also a key, as it should be. Parents are not only welcome on campus, there is also an expectation they are part of the learning experience. I could not recommend this school more highly.

I am currently in 9th grade and i really enjoy this school. I have been here since 4th grade. I enjoy going to this school because I've known all the kids for a long time, and its easier to talk to people. I don't think there is a bullying issue with this school, because it's never happened to me and I rarely ever see it.

I really love my school. I am in 6th grade and i have been there since kindergaten. I really love this school. but I think I will move out in high school, just so i can explore new things and make new friends. But if there is any parents lookin gfo ra good middle school, I think that UMS is great because there is alot of welcoming kids here, including me. But one thing I dont really like is the teachers. some of them are really weird. but we really have good electives and I am having fun.

i't an ok school, i have liked it. But you are with the same kids from k-12 which is good, but you also have all the same kids picking on you. The teacher are good, but there isn't much extra curriculum. It is a very small school which is good and bad. but i want to go to a different school for the rest of my school years.

This school has been exceptional for my son. He has been there since 1st grade and loves and excels at school, enjoys his friends and teachers and aspires to be a doctor. The school has gone through transition but the committement to excellence and student centered teaching is present at all levels.

This is by far the best all around school in town. Great emphasis on academics, but also a comprehensive extracurricular program. Great administration, and high quality teachers. The advisor/advisee program gives a real sense of community and makes sure the no child gets lost in the shuffle. The smaller size of the classes is a huge plus. This is a K-12 school, and the staff takes advantage of all the opportunities this offers. Highly recommended, but tough to get into there s at least twice as many applications as openings I guess that says a lot right there!

We have been pleased with the school and have had our kids in the school since kindergarten. If your child is self directed, and a good to above average student this school is great and I would give it a 4 or 5 star. There are lots of activities and the parents are very involved. If you child is not motivated or struggles a little, this is probable not the school for your child. The school does not have much interest in kids that are not self- directed and will happily let your child flounder without any intervention. I have kids on both ends of the spectrum so the best I can give it is a 3 star.

I am strongly considering removing my child from this school. Half way through her first grade year, my child cannot tell me what 2+1 is on a flash card. No discipline, little structure and a very weak grade school curriculum.

I am a parent of a student and ex-student. My daughter started this school in kindergarten and is now a senior in high school, and my son kicked out of school the end of his third grade year. The leadership at the school is substandard at most. This school is not equipt to handle anything but the average student. I can honestly say that my third grader (now in 6th at another school) did have behavior problems. The school handled this by excluding him from other students thus bring more negative attention to him by other students and faculty. Needless to say this made him feel alienated socially and academically. The school psychologist went so far as to diagnose him as bi-polar whereas a professional dismissed this thought. My son now gets near straight A's and loves school.

Mrs. Martin (2nd/3rd) we enjoyed. Mrs. Hunter (3rd/4th) has been wonderful for my child and takes the time to work with him. He has special needs, and made, on her own time, a workbook that is @ his level.

I am a parent of an elementary student and high school student. The school is very good for middle school and high school students but lacks in the elementary program. The older children in the comb classes get left waitng for the younger students and my child is bored with this every year she is the older child. I feel this is holding back kids in the 2nd and 4th grades. Our csap's show this loud and clear!

Aside from extremely poor leadership, my child has had great teachers at UH. There are a lot of electives, and I feel that the teachers push the students to learn about the world beyond the classroom.

We have been very pleased with University High School. The school has a strong AP program and several excellent teachers. The school supports independent study where that is appropriate and this makes the high school experience rewarding for even the strongest students. The school also has a strong arts program and good extracurricular activities. The student community is one I am pleased that my children are part of.
