My daughter has attended UPA for the past 3 years. She has had the pleasure of being taught by several quality teachers, that really care! Unfortunately, administration lacks compassion and often hurl insult the children.

High teacher turnover, inconsistencies in instruction, and numerous safety concerns. Ammunition found in school and student brought a gun on campus February 2015. Officials became aware of weapon March 9, 2015, one month later. Students/Parents are often treated as insignificant. School officials tout on schools success 10 years ago. No textbooks for STEM courses.

The staff are some of the best I've seen , the problem lays with when a teacher is absent. The pool of replacement teachers is wanting. One use's very profane language to the students and the school wishes to keep her on.

This school has excellent organization and leadership. Doug Ross works hard to offer the best middle school experience. The entire staff keeps the student first. Students acheive in a welcoming and supportive environment. Parents are treated with respect and are encouraged to get involved. The children have classes in art, music, foreign language and life skills. After school clubs and tutoring are availabe. I would recommend this school because they consider the whole child. I have had two grandaughters there. One is now in high school and the other is in the eighth grade.

I love this school. The best school I've ever been to. It doesn't let you off easy because thats what they do in college. I really do think this school will help me later on in college. I look forward to going to UPA for the next 6 years.
