Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Most of the teachers have become complacent and are use to following the same old routine that's "seemingly" worked for 30 years. The world has changed and many of them have refused to change with it.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Compared to the rest of the country, the homework is a joke. Many students are so involved in sports that the teachers don't give much homework.


Develops character: Agree

Sure, honesty and integrity were fine. The teacher student to ratio was good, which means the students were well-behaved. But, that doesn't mean the curriculum was competitive.

I had my child in 1st grade at Ulm and I was briefly a substitute teacher. The 1st and 2nd grade curriculum is well behind the national standards. At the end of the year I transferred my child to a school in Great Schools and the difference was night and day. Ulm does not meet the academic standards of the rest of the country.

This school has a very good student to teacher ratio. My daughter had between 6 and 13 students in each year. The school was very open to parental involvement: I started an after-school French club for the kindergarteners and first-graders, started and was the coach for MathCounts during 6-8th grades, was welcomed to attend days of classes every year with my daughter, and participated in the parent-school organization. My suggestions were listened to and usually acted upon. My concerns were addressed. This was a fabulous school!
