Underwood is an excellent school. I have two children currently attending, the oldest has been there for 5 years. The class sizes are good. The only negative about the school is the teacher turnover rate is higher than desired. Still a great place to send your kids.

The nice school with the nice teachers. Kid loves to go to school. I believe he will gain more in the new school year.

Underwood is filled with caring, responsive and amazing teachers who take the time to get to know the needs of each student. Through the use of co-taught classrooms, teaching assistants, and supplemental offerings the School can provide a wide range of services to engage and challenge all the children. The School community is small so the children quickly get to know all the teachers and staff, as well as each other. The parent community is actively engaged in many different activities to support the School. Underwood is an amazing elementary school.
