Bad idea when i send my child to this school the teachers are always complainting about the students they cry more than the children. Every other week i was getting a bad report on my child i dont have these many problems when she was in public school i thought this was a christian base school. If you are even thinking about this school DONT SEND YOUR CHILD THERE!

This is certainly not a wise choice for your child's education. They are about money... not educating your children.

If there was a negative part to this scale, I would use it. UBC is the WORST school I've ever had to deal with. They are all about money not education and if you dont have the money, your child will not get the education. PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS THERE. The worst teacher that I have encountered was Mrs. Charlene and my kid was not a member of her class. She is the complete opposite of PROFESSIONAL.

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY THE WORST SCHOOL I HAVE EVER SEEN. THE TEACHERS WERE WONDERFUL BUT THE PRINCIPAL HAS A HORRIBLE DISPOSITION.THERE WERE NO MATERIALS FOR THE KIDS AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR THE KIDS TO PLAY WITH DURING RECESS. THEY DIDNT EVEN HAVE LEAP TESTING MATERIALS FOR THE 4TH GRADERS....IT WAS A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE FOR ME AND I DONT ADVISE ANYONE TO SEND THEIR CHILDREN TO THIS SCHOOL.

After hearing a few comments about the school, I was on the fence, but decided to try it out. With no introduction for the parents, my daughter has had 4 teachers this year......4! This is unacceptable as I am a teacher and enrolled my daughter for the christian teachings. If you are not a church member, you child will be treated different......PERIOD! If you are a member, you simply deal with it. The school has alot going on that personally I don't agree with. Parents please consider the whole school before you decide on admission. We will not be returning next year. Teachers are great, it's the principal and administration that brings the school down. Tuition increased to balance out the declining enrollment numbers. Simply put, talk to parents who are not members of the church to find out the real.

I am a Christian parent and I like the underlying christian doctrine and discipline used in instructing my children at UBC Academy. This is my third child currently attending the school because of that.

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 student 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.
