Congratulations on the new building. Much improvement needed in Academics, but great help for ESL students who go from no English to graduating with scholarships within years of enrollment.

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 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.
