US has long been perceived among educators as one of the best in the country. Having worked at four other schools, it is very much the case today. It is a great place to work.

We moved here for the opportunity to go to this school and it was the right choice.

This school is great for the above average intelligent child who is easy to teach to. There are very limited services for children who need additional support - especially in K-4, Excellent school if your child fits the mold.

My son came for seventh grade after a disastorous experience at the public middle school. He is so much happier here. He doesn't even have to ask to go to the bathroom in class, let alone carry a pass. While many of the students are wealthier than our family, he feels right at home. He was a white student at a middle school that was 10% white last year, so it is a relief for him to be with boys who look like him. He saw the real world in elementary school, so we thought he could go to a happy little bubble for a while.

I find University School to thoroughly engage each student to help them go at their own individual pace and to grow and flourish as a student. All grade levels, K-12, produce some of the best students the nation, and possibly the world, can offer. U.S, boasts and outstanding 100% college matriculation rate, and almost every student gets into their first choice college. The curriculum is rigorous and flexible throughout the grades. Teachers are college-level for the most part, and many have come out of very respecable colleges themselves. Some are gradutes of U.S. The school has a great honor code, and each student not only graduates well-educated but well-read and gentlemanly also. Touching again on that note, the students are encouraged to be well-rounded, excelling in studies, athletics, and the fine arts. Led by outstanding leaders from around the globe, U.S. is one of the top school in the U.S.A.

This school is at its best with the K-4 level. A the middle school level, politics are taking a toll on morale and the overall excellence is not what it once was. The current headmaster leaves much to be desired.

The school is awsome at the lower levels, K-4 especially. I can't say enough good thngs. At the middle schoo level, the discipline and skill of the administrations seems to drop off. Middle school stafferrs have misgivings about the current headmaster as do some parents. Quality does seem to have dropped since he arrived. Personnel decisions seem questionable to say the least at times. There is a drastic change in attitude and style between the middle and uppr school that can be a shock to students.

I have a very positive view of this school overall. They are very aware of each student as an individual. They also afford them great opportunities in academic and extra curricular programs. Most of these opportunites are beneficial to the child as a future practical event.
