My grandaughter completed her high school diploma today because of the foresight of this school in understanding her needs. The administration sent her to Northlake Community College to do reciprocal courses under their wing. What a difference in attitude and success! Today all 12 University School graduates had finally achieved their high school ambitions, several with college courses also. A big thank you to this school for meeting this need and offering encouragement!
Initially, I was excited for my children to be here. However, learning was often interrupted by commotions or general ruckus. It was promoted as an 'honors academy' but the majority of students appear to have [an] overall lack of respect for authority that is not handled. I will no longer recommend this school to anyone and pray that I have not done my children a disservice by enrolling them here instead of their local middle school.
This is a great school for someone who just wants to get out of high school fast or doesn't want all the extra curricular activities and functions of a normal high school. I myself graduated last year and am currently attending Arizona State Universtiy.
This school is very disorganized. The teachers tell the students one thing and the parents something else. They are suppose to give mid-term grade out, but they don't. Report cards were consistently late. Don't send your kids here!
