I attend underwood high school and the principal at the middle school was very incompetent. there were many problems with bullying as explained in a review before me and when a child told a teacher it was very rarely delt with. My friends and I also had problems with the P.E. teacher who made the girls work hard during class while he let the boys sit around in class and talk while doing nothing. at one point he even pulled them into a room by themselves and stated that us girls looked up to them and they were our role models. when we went to the principal about the problem he simply stated that is was a problem to be solved between the teacher and ourselves and he couldnt do anything about it. i believe that the school has potential it just needs a new principal.

My son currently attends this school and bullying and harrassment are common place. When contacting the principal about this issue, he does little to counter-act it even though they have 'zero-tolerance' policy against bullying in the school.

Tough and challenging curriculum helps prepare our students for the future. Great leadership is provided.

I've been to UMS before..I love the school. The staff is really great at giving you the most help you can get..from one subject to the next. The music program is great, and growing. The sports are wonderful, but best of all the educational success has been great. I recently graduated from Underwood Middle School and almost all kids were on the honor rolls. The education is great, as well as the extra curricular activities. Underwood Midde School is a great school for your child to atttend.
