This school is amazing! The teacher truly care about the kids who attend. here. I have 2 children who attend and will soon have another joining them.. i wouldn't even think about my kids going to any other private or public school other than UECA.

If you are looking for a supportive learning environment, than you have found it! I had two children at United Educational (one graduated 3 years ago, and my youngest is going into the 5th grade). I love this school, and so do my children.

I love this school. I would gladly pay the tuition to send my kids here again. The public schools in my area have lots of issues on a daily basis. My kids experienced many opportunities for growth with their challenging curriculum while in a safe environment.

I love this school! I'm a single mother of 5. My children ages are 6 months, 2yrs, 4yrs, 7yrs and 9yrs old. This school provides nurturing, developmental, and educational services for them all. Being a single mother, this school is truly a blessing! My 4yrs old is learning Cursive Handwriting and she's reading. My 9yrs old is in a classroom of 8 students and is able to receive individual teaching due to the small classroom size coupled with his awesome teacher. This school is Chicago's Southside "best kept secret"!

This school is awesome! Fostering cultural diversity, empowering youth, encouraging moral values, coupled with an extensive education, are just a few of the benefits my children are exposed to at this school. Also, they provide students with an outstanding educational leverage, thanks to the specialized cirriculum and small teacher-student ratio. Their family-like environment promotes and encourages unity among the students and staff, interchangeably. Very reasonable tuition rates and they offer and accept assistance programs. I could go on and on. Check it out, they give free tours!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
