The teachers here need to go back and learn how to spell...But overall good school.
All I have to say is that parents should get they're kids to this school. My child has been in this school for about 5 years and this is they're school when they got in the school they didn't even know one word ow they can even teach me !!!!!
I rate this school a five star because it has great and cooperative teachers the programs are great. Also that they're are after school programs to teach student and parents learn English and get them better education. It's the best school ever! The only problem we have is that the school is small we need more space. And UA ALL THE WAY!!!!
First, the staff is very dedicated and genuinely concerned about student success. Second, the lunches are homemade and are excellent. In addition, there is technology implemented throughout the curriculum to keep students current. Each classroom gets computers for the whole class! There are also tablets available and the teachers have many of the classroom materials that they need.
Universal Academy is K-12. It has a safe environment. Multicaltural school with a different programs. Also using technology in all calasses.
Universal Academy is a small school. All teachers try their best to collaborate with one another. Some students careless and not listen to their teachers. As far as the admans, barely there is any communications and you would get lost between what they exactly need or want from you.
Universal Academy is a unique school in the city of Detroit. It is very welcoming to English language learners, especially those who speak Arabic. It is planning to build a brand new facility next year. Universal Academy is a k-12 school, with small class sizes, a large tutorial staff on board, dedicated teachers and administrators, and a commitment to quality education. The students are full of life and bring a wealth of cultural diversity with them. I see that Universal Academy families have much hope for the future and will work towards creating a successful path. High school students get the rare support of counseling and assistance in moving ahead to college, with scholarship opportunities researched and attained for many. Submitted by a teacher
Universal Academy is a wonderful school. Teachers maintain high expectations of all students and work hard to collaborate and do what is best for each individual child.
Universal Academy is a great school, wonderful teachers. I would recommend this to families in the community.
The teaching staff works and collaborates well with one another in their efforts to provide an enriched learning environment for all the students they serve.
It was a very hard adjustment coming to this school. The facility is used to the best use possible, but it was not meant to house a school. Some of the students were very helpful, but there are a majority of the students that could care less and don't listen to anyone, including the admiinistration.
Universal Academy has a very rich and diverse environment. The school is well maintained and organized. They are very detailed when notifying parents on future plans with the students and school projects. Their learning environment is one of the best I have seen. Every child is given a great and equal chance to succeed at the highest level. The working environment at Universal Academy is amazing. Staffs are very committed to their job, administration provides teachers with great mentoring, and the principle is running the school on a student s first point of view, with recognition that teachers are leaders of education.
Universal Academy is a grea school because it has a safe environment that I did not see in other schools. Education is great . Universal Academy offer variety of programs that help all students and special the new comers. Counselors help students getting scholorship, and the keep track of their students until they graduate from the high school. They have good teachers who stay late to help students. Principal keep in touch with the staff to be sure that everything is going right. The school has a good technology which support learning 21 century. It is a clean school, but it is small to fit elementary and secondary at the same time. Their food is wonderful and healthy for students. Administration, and coordinators work together to help teachers processing the reqirements.
PROS: they teach really great, most people are nice, & its a safe environment. CONS: don't have good sports, does not feel like a regular high school, no homecoming, no proms, no type of school dances and No diversity at all ! the school would have been really nice if we were treated like actual high schoolers... people want to graduate and have their high school memories
I wasted all my high school years at Universal Academy. Its a small school that has classes from K-12 grade. I graduated from Universal Academy in 2010, i regret all the time i wasted there. When my friends at college ask me about my high school i don't know what to tell them, because no one knows Universal Academy. The sports system sucks big time, there is only one volley ball team for girls and one soccer team for guys. There is no real coaches and there is no fields to practice on. High School should be one of the most memorable times of my life and i totally regret going to Universal Academy. If you have children my advice is to take them to another "REAL" high school. Unless you want them to have the same regrets i had. P.s NO PROMS NO HOMECOMINGS NOTHING AND NO DIVERSITY.
I love Universal Academy because it caters to every individual student and teach all the way till he/she graduate and with honors and qulified for a scholarship.
Universal Academy is a 'home away from home'. We're a close-knit family and work together as a team to accomplish our goals of continuous school improvement. We've made AYP though may students are Limited English Proficient and almost 100% of our students come from Economically Disadvantaged backgrounds. Our Superintendent/Founder Mrs. Nawal Hamadeh kicked off the year with staff with a theme of 'Dream*Imagine*Re-Imagine*Change' and that we shall do!
Universal Academy fosters an extremely positive learning environment. Everyone is part of a team including students and parents.
A diverse and dynamic school standing proud of its multiculture and multilingual population, aiming for the best and working hard to stay on top.
Great thing about Universal Academy - an amazing multicultural environment where students, parents and teachers interact on international level.
