we don't learn much in any class. Every senior that graduates and goes off to college tells me they aren't college ready and that everything is a lot more difficult than they imagined because of how little they were taught in high school. the handful of great teachers we had who cared for us quit because of the injustice in Universal Academy. Recently, 8 teachers were fired all at once and since then we've had substitutes. Overall, it's a horrible learning environment. The materials we learn are things the outgoing students already know from previous years; thus, we get dragged behind along with other students that always slack off. They Fired all the good teachers and kept Mr.Swied. I don't recommend this school. Written By 9B Student 2015-1016.
I go home everyday with almost no homework i hardly ever get homework and if i get homework i just do it the hour before the class or copy someone who did their homework. Written By 9B Student 2015-2016
Over the past year Hammadeh, Anjum, and the administration have been able to completely destroy the learning and safety aspects of this school. Literally nothing is being taught and teachers never seem to last more than a week. I would not recommend placing your children in this school. It will ultimately set them up for complete failure.
Congratulations to Universal Academy and to the HES Family for ranking as the 10th best high school in the state of Michigan according to the Mackinac Center for Public Policy's Michigan Public High School Context and Performance Report Card.

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!!!!
