Such a jewel in a neighborhood that needs this kind of example for our future, to instill in our children if you believe it you can achieve it.

The school is close in the neighborhood. Need to work on test scores the kids worked very poorly according to the 2005 scores than they did in 2004 which reflects on the teachers.

My daughter attended Umphrey Lee for two years (K and 1st grade). We have since moved into another district. We miss the experienced teachers at Umphrey Lee and the compassion that this particular school showed for their students.
