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".
Universal Learing Academy. I am a parent of a first grader at ULA. This is my second year at ULA. I have seen excellent progress within the past year. Administration and staff are wonderful. My son is in 1D and he has Ms. Scher. She is an amazing teacher who has taught my son lots of things. I've noticed great change in my sons behavior because of her. She teachs from the heart and cares for her students, he pushes them to succeed and doesn't want them to give up. I am really pleased with the elementary team at ULA They are all awesome. My son always has great things to say about his teacher. The best thing about Ms. Scher is that she always has a smile on her face for her students. I would like to say thank you Ms. Scher for making my son become more dependent and more looking forward into learning.
I am a parent at this school. I loved this year so much where I felt very welcomed from all staff, principal, paraprofessional,etc.
Universal learning academy. I am a parent of 3 students at ULA. The new administration team this year is amazing. They really will do anything for the students. Since they are new here, there are still a few things that need to be worked on, and organization is one of them. But I must say this has been the best year by far! Keep up the good work, and everything will work itself out.
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.
It's a great school to work for! We have a great staff, that is very friendly and supportive!
We met AYP, we have the most conducive environmeny. We fully utalize technology.We all have computers and an electronic means of tracking our daily activities, monitoring school improvement implementation, tracking student progress, communicating with all key stakeholders (staff, parents, students, community members). Every department utilizes technology and it is integrated throughout our curriculum. The changes for strategic planning this year have made our jobs easier in using outlook to track our activities, meetings and tasks and sharing and exporting as a means for reporting; using PowerSchool for tracking/monitoring/reporting; having support staff (parapro s/support providers) setup to have their own electronic gradebooks. Our parnets are deeply involved in the education of their kids. The entire community supports us.
We are one big family. Students, staff, parents, and all interested parties intertwine to form a community focused at educating the whole child!
We always have the students' best interests at heart and we are more determined than ever to make sure that we are meeting all of our students' diverse needs.
My 9 year old has really excellently progressed since enrolling 3 years ago
I love the after scholl A.C.E. It is helping my daughter a great deal and to my surprise and after much complaining about starting, she actually enjoys the the extra time in school.
