My children have attended Unity since 2006; when we relocated from North Carolina. We have been very pleased with our school and the extra help it provides. All three of my children have had reading help at one time or another and they have blossomed with the help of the Unity staff. The teachers really care about their students and they made our move a blessed one.

Both of my children attend Unity they love it and have done very well. I have had few problems and most of them are things my kids could have handled but are to shy to do so. My daughter is in second grade reading at a forth grade level and that says alot about this school and i would highly reccomend Unity to anyone.

Posted March 1, 2008

The academic records speak for themselves.I have several children who currently attend the school ,and at times I have had a few differences in opion with the faculty. However,it has always been handled in the proper manner.Our ultimate goals were the same.All in all Unity has some great teachers,and my children have done very well.Although there are I few changes that I would like to see made, I recommend the school to anyone.Sports at the school ???? Lots of former Unity kids have done well after moving into the higher grade levels.
