My children have been attending this school for over 5 years. It actually has classes from PreK to 5th grade. Not many people know about the school and I think it is one of the best kept secrets of Champaign-Urbana. Anyone can schedule a visit either in person on online via Skype to really know more about the school and its philosophy. Wonderful and caring teachers. The real feedback comes from my kids who never ever say that they do not want to go to school - they love it too much!
This school meets my gifted child's needs socially, emotionally, and academically using a whole- child approach to early childhood education. The teaching staff is caring and committed, and the school has many resources within the community and the University of Illinois.
The University Primary School takes a 'project approach' to connect knowledge in all disciplines together. Example project themes I heard of are 'bread', 'machine', and 'hotel'. The children have fun in learning.
