I love this school because of the advanced curriculum, security, and the individual attention that students receive.

My son has attends Unselds' School for the past five years. From the outside looking in you may be deceived. The shool looks small but drop in and look around and you will be amazed. The education and dedication that he receives from the teachers is outstanding. There are programs in which ALL students participate, this allows public speaking. There are after school activities, chess club, basketball, etc. They even have a gap and gown graduation for 8th graders entering high school. Students may not understand what is going on but they are being prepared for a lifetime of success if they do what they are supposed to do. The Unselds' even go beyond the norm and provide services and rewards that you would not find in a publice or some private schools. Many of the students who graduate from Unseld enter a presitigous High School. i would recommend

My daughter came to the Unseld school in the 4th grade and last year she graduated and went on to one of the best schools in the city. I know that with the dedication of the teachers she would not be as accomplished as she is. I now have a 2 year old and he will start in a month. I love this school!!!!!!!

Sometimes the teachers lack on their responsibility, but Ms. Kim and Ms. Connie will put them in their place. Well I love this school and I hope I finish my 8th grade year.I love this school and I wish them well in the future.I love this school I never want to leave but i have to.Good luck Unselds'.

my son has attented unseld's in 2nd grade and is now in 5th grade. My son is accomplishing more and more each week and pushed to a level of greatness. I expect when he leaves after 8th grade he will not only be ready academically but socially beacause of all the extra activies that are taught there along with his studies. My son will become a well rounded student because of attending unselds'. The teachers are great and Mrs. Connie and Ms. Kim are awesome and love all the kids. proud parent

I am an Unselds' School Student. This is my first year here and I am adapting to the environment perfectly. I never had a cheerleading squad at my previous school, but Unselds' does. The teachers help you on every subject that they teach you. The activities there are astonishing.

I attend McDaniel College in Westminster, Md. This past spring my class made a visit to the Unselds School and it was absolutely amazing. It is such an inspiration to see these children excited about their education. The Unselds School does a fantastic job of motivating their students in a positive direction. When I become a teacher, I hope to be affiliated with such an institution.

I graduated from Unselds' School this past June. I was accepted into four prestigious private high schools and City College. I enjoyed the learning experiences, extra curricula activities, and the help of the teachers and staff. I look at my peers who attend other schools and know that they never had the opportunities that I had at Unselds'. They were jealous that we had a Prom and that we went to Ocean City. I shadowed at many high schools and felt that their classwork in high school was what we had already accomplished in eighth grade.

I take great offense to the student who claims they were not properly prepared. Unselds' has a strong reputation of pushing its scholars along into academically challenging institutions. Most students must maintain that same drive that staff and parents have at Unselds'. Teachers, parents, staff and grandparents at Unselds' demand hard work and that must be consistent in high school! I have a hard time believing that a strong foundation dwindles into 'being behind' if one is working to the potential set! A standard at Unselds' has been set through a network of devoted individuals that foster more that academic excellence. A grammatically challenged review such as this student's claim states the obvious. A foundation was set, the lack of potential could only be the issue of a student lacking drive!

My son will be graduating from the Unselds' School next week, after attending for 3 wonderful years! He has been an honor student for the majority of the time that he was there, and consequently was accepted to 4 fine schools.(Cardinal Gibbons, Mt. St. Joe, Boys' Latin and Poly. In September, he will be a 9th grader at Boys' Latin. When my son entered Unselds', I must say that he was an average student. As he leaves, he has blossomed into a scholar, a gentleman and a polished young man. This is all thanks to the entire Unseld family!! This family lives and breathes these kids! They are devoted to their students and the quality of the education which their students receive. Chief among his influence, was Ms. Kim Unseld who can only be described as an enigma! She is all things, does all things, hopes all things and believes

I attend this school for most of my schooling. I have to say that unselds does have so positive and negative things about it. Postive: It taught me to be proud of my heritage and myself. It gave me a strong foundation. I attend roland park for high school and the this that unselds taught be about being black really helped there. Negative: I was not prepared for my transition into high school. A lot of things that i should have been taught academically in my earlier years i did not have. My first year in Roland Park was tough becasue I was way behing most of the other students. Overall unselds did a poor job in teaching me skills but an excellent in teaching me about my black heritage. I would not recomend you send your child her for middle school but it is an excellent school for elementray.

I student-taught at Unselds' with Miss Kim and I thought she was a fantastic teacher! Miss Connie is a wonderful lady and is very caring and compassionate. Even Mr. Wes helps out! Actually, he does a lot too. This family lives this school, and they know what they're doing.

Our son started Unseld's school in August and he loves it. My son has been on the honor roll since he's been there and I believe they have only brought out the best in him. I love the fact that they have a very well rounded program and even teach the kids manners. The biggest problem I have with the school, is that it seems like it's not well organized. Parents are not very welcomed at any point. It became very frustrating not being able to see my son's teacher after many request. Also, a lack of commication and information given out. These things were very frustrating.Thank goodness we had a school calendar to refer too, because many times you are not reminded.My teacher's son was always present, dispite a finger operation. My husband and I like the school and my son loves the school, but our son won't be returning.

My son is currently enrolled in Unseld school and the drastic change in the way he looks and feel about himself is wonderful. He is not afraid to try new and exiciting challenges. He reads everything he can get his hands on. He wakes up every morning ready to put on his pressed uniform and headed out the door for fear he may be late. More then that is the faculty. They provides such a warm touch to each and every student. Giving the students such a clear sense of knowing what achievement is and how to get it through hard work. My hat goes off to each faculty member at Unseld.

My child attended the Unselds'school for 11 years and I am proud to say that I am a parent of an Usnselds' School alumni. The school provided my child with a powerful sense of moral values and self-confidence. As far as academics, my child maintained an honor roll status and was able to have one on one help with teachers when necessary or requested. This dynamic family oriented institution provides extra-curricular activities for all of the students who attend; these include drama productions, sports, community service projects, and other monthly programs. The success achieved at Unselds' School is not the duty of the teachers but the effort put forth from each individual student.

Unseld's School is not what it used to be years ago. The acedemic side of the school is great. The school lacks professionalism within the staff. The school doesn't offer anything with computers and technology. The summer program, is unorganized, they do not inform the parents of the activities that will be going on in the summer. I had my child there for a period of time and I noticed that his class was getting smaller and smaller. If you choose this school please think about seriously! Or else you will be sorry.
