I am quite saddened by the outcome of UCA. My child started the first year it opened (3 years ago). At that time there was lots of excitement about a charter school coming to the community with a rigorous curriculum and a technology program that would give our kids the 'edge' they needed to succeed in the future. Unfortunately, the standards that were included in the proposal that was submitted and approved have not been met. UCA has failed our children in more ways than one. The teachers are just 'ok.' They are not motivated; therefore, they cannot provide continuous motivation and encouragement to our kids. My son will not be returning next year, but I truly hope that the necessary improvements will be made for the kids that won't be as fortunate to leave.
This school needs new leaders (Teachers) who are dedicated to their craft and care about their students' progress. The park grounds the children play on are often times inhabited by vagrants and other people of the streets.
This school needs lots of improvement. There is no music, very little art, no sports and little, if any, extracurricular activities. The school is located in a three-story building, the only girls bathroom is on the third floor...which is usually very unhygienic. This school needs teachers who have positive attitudes, a new building and some technology (as in a few computers for students and the lunchroom). My child will not be returning next year.
