It's sad that this was a great and successful school just a few years ago but has since fallen apart. Before you enroll your child here ask their teachers how many of them send their own children to schools within the U Prep School District. If you find that the numbers are very low then ask yourself, "If the school isn't good enough for their children is it good enough for mine?"
This was a great school until the new management took over, it s sad how they came and dismantled a perfectly good school. Mrs. Margaret Trimer Hartleys brought people in under Faust promises. How do you fire a person that brought in 900,000 in scholarships for our students? Within the last three months Mark Ornstein has come into the school and disregards the parents and students wishes to keep the programs and the functionality of the school. Bring him on has been the worst mistake the school could have made. With the choices they have made it is best that we take our children someplace else where education and parent involvement is a priority, because here it s all about his pockets.
This school has students in grades 9-12 for this year (2013-2014). With all the extra-curricular activities, clubs and athletic teams, this is the first year when UPSM HS feels like a real high school. I've been with this District for 6 years; my son went to the middle school first, and I love the care and attention we receive here. This, plus the academic excellence, makes UPSM HS one of the greatest schools in Detroit.
All the parents of U Prep Science and Math HS support the school's model and appreciate the hard work and dedication of all staff. Parents are really involved here and care about what happens at the school. Principal is very fair - every time I needed to see her, she made time to meet with me. The Emperor is very helpful. They really take care of you and your child here.
