Authorized by Bay Mills Community College, ULA offers an outstanding elementary education based on Michigan s core curriculum and the study of international cultures, including a language, culture, and history different from one s own. We encourage students to express and share their wealth of ethnic traditions, values, and experiences, thus enriching and nurturing one another. ULA s certified, experienced teachers hold degrees from nationally and internationally renowned colleges and universities. With uncommon dedication, our staff work closely with students and parents, sharing information and providing the personal attention necessary to help each child excel. Universal Learning Academy s professional and paraprofessional staff and support personnel work as a cohesive team with one common purpose: a superior education for our students, the decision-makers and leaders of tomorrow.
ULA's student body is now more diverse than ever so why is there so much emphasis on only certain cultures? Why are the children offered only the Arabic language? Why aren't children learning the U.S. National anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance? There is obviously not much interest in teaching pride AND diversity but rather addressing the importance of limited cultures. As long as they follow the school dress code, the children should not be admonished because they do not adhere to the Muslim dress code.
Universal Learning Academy is an average school. The education is fine but the teachers are terrible except for Mrs.Strecker and Mrs.Holdman. They are very kind and actually do their job. The principle, Mr.Bazzi, is very strict and not very respectable. He does not value his student's opinion. Some teachers are very selfish and don't do do their job. They don't offer real middle school or high school opportunities or clubs. The students judge each other and bully. But that is only a 35%. At other times the students are very nice. I am speaking form experience.
ULA has improved quite a bit in the last two years. The admin team is wonderful! They are enthusiastic and genuinely care about improving the school. My kids have always attending ULA, and I do not see them going anywhere else. I look forward to watching them grow here! Thank you!
I am a proud parent of a 2nd grader at Universal Learning Academy. This is my third year at the sschool. Iam very pleased with the elementary teachers, they are great, they explain everything with the kids ans help. They take there time and very patient. My son has improved thru out the 3 years of being there. I am very happy with Ms. Copaica she has made my son to be more dependent and reliable. The staff and and administration team are awesome. Mr. Bazzi has done a wonderful job At the school, kids love him. I am looking forward for the next school year at Universal Learning Academy.
This is an amazing school! The teachers are very caring, and supportive of the students. My daughter has greatly improved from the beginning of the year, and Illook forward to her going 2014-2015 and my son starting Kindergarten. Mr. Bazzi is amazing, sweet, charismatic, but tough when he needs to be. You can feel the genuine interest the teachers, and staff have. The only complaint is some of the office staff have a bad attitude everyday, and I dislike dealing with them, and would love for Arabic class to be extended 2 hours a day Monday-Friday other than that I could not wish for a better school- it feels more like home!! Will eventually have 5 total at the school if it all works out!!
This school is great. The staff are awesome very friendly. I have four kids there. 2-8th grades. My oldest is an A student teachers care, one on one help if needed after or before school. Been there for 8 years and not thinking of leaving. This is my second home. I give it five stars
ULA is a great school--- my son absolutely loves it! We just moved from another state not too long ago and I can see the difference right away. The teachers are experienced and very helpful. The principal and staff are all amazing! Keep up the great job!
This year they got lots of new teachers that do not know what to do and they are not organized.Am talking here about the sixth grade teachers except for the Math teacher Ms "Strecker" she is the only one that cares about teaching the subject.
This is by far one of the worst schools I've ever been to. My child completely, and utterly hates the school. I don't blame them. The teachers are horrible. They can't teach very well, and I know that because my child is up all night doing homework, always struggling. The science teacher is not a very good teacher with a dull personality, as well as the other staff. The teachers want nothing but the money. That's why they are there. The school's MEAP scores were not all that high either. I am definitely transferring my child to another school. They deserve better than this "school".
I am a parent at this school. I loved this year so much where I felt very welcomed from all staff, principal, paraprofessional,etc.
I have volunteered in one of the Arabic classes (4th grade ). I was surprised with the way that Mrs. Elromh teaches her class. She was dressed up as a scientist and asking the students to talk using the Arabic language. I was stunned with the way that all students were quiet and trying to particpate.She also brought different old items to show the students about different inventions and how we improved.
Universal Learning Academy is a school which allows students to be exactly who they are on the inside. The leadership team at the school push very hard for us to be our best.
Universal Learning Academy is a great school to send your children to. The staff and administration push the kids to be their best and to work hard. The staff is incredibly friendly and always available to help parents. Many of them offer their services after school to help students that need extra help. The environment is friendly and welcoming. The principal of the school is incredibly accomodating and always available if needed. They serve free breakfast and lunch to all the students and offer a wide variety of afterschool programs.
I am the parent of a kindergarten student in Ms. Hedke's class. I have been very happy with my childs education and the level he is progressing. The teacher takes her time to speak with the parents everyday and is never to busy for us. I have observed her in the class room with the students, and was blown away. The amount of care and love she provides to our children was incredible. I am very happy I selected this school for my child. Everyone in the school that I have encountered is very kind and helpful. They also offer free breakfast and lunch for all students and encourage health eating habbits. There is no disgusting mystery meals here, just real food.
The teachers really care about their students. Teachers go above and beyond for their students, so that they will be successful not only during elementary school but in life as well.
Universal Learning Academy is a great place to learn! We look forward to our MEAPsters and SCANTRONians leading our school to victory with another year of meeting AYP requirements and meeting our goals of continuous school improvement. Our Superintendent/Founder Mrs. Nawal Hamadeh is leading the way this year and has empowered all to 'Transform & Discover the Wonders of your Wisdom, Strength & Powers'. With that we are able to get out of our 'Comfort Zone' and 'Keep on Going'. We will not Quit on our 2009-10 Theme of 'Dream*Imagine*Re-Imagine*Change'!
It is the best place you can work at, all the staff over here are like one big family, our staff give their best and push beyond the limit to help students achieve their goals in education and life. we also provide the best and most healthy food, mostly home made to make sure our beloved students get all the nutrition they need to stay focused.
Universal Learning Academy is an establishment where everyone from the principal to the Parent Teacher Committee is dedicated to the success of the students both in and out of the classroom. Students are learning to be independent thinkers, questioners, and risk takers in their academics. They are also encouraged to be caring toward others and their communities.
