Parents of Universal Academy Irving just completed their Parent/Teacher meeting and parents were thrilled to have the opportunity to learn about their child's progress this school year. Many parents were very interested in learning about volunteer opportunities at the campus and different ways they can get involved.

In response to the April 14, 2014 post/review. You must be talking about a different campus. These reviews are for Universal Academy in Coppell Texas. Your review is clearly Not for this campus because it does Not go through High School & they have Not been around 14 years. This next school year 2014/2015 is the 1st year they are going up to 9th grade. So disregard the post from April 14, 2014 as it is obviously Not the same campus.

This school is so rude to the students, our children. My kids will not be attending next year. My daughters self esteem was crushed by a teacher making fun of her and when approached by me it only made the rest of the school year even worse for her. I should have pulled her out of the school right then but I kept thinking it would get better. I was wrong. This school will be shut down soon if the down make some major changes!

In response to the April 8, 2014 comment addressed to two administrators at Universal Academy. I am a proud parent of Universal Academy. My oldest son started at Universal Academy and greaduated from Universal Academy in 2013. My youngest children still attend UA. I have known these two administrators for 14 years and I can say without hesitation or doubt they are most certainly carin, compassionate and respectful to all students. Everyone at UA cares tremendously about the well-being and academic success of every child at this school. I have just as much faith in UA as I had in them when my family first came to the school 14 years ago. To the administrators, faculty, staff, teachers and students continue doing the things that have made you great. Never let anyone deter you, stay the course, keep your eyes on the prize and know that the best is yet to come! To soar to the heights of eagles is to find a place where few go and only the very best can reach! Universal Academy I still believe - Together We Fly! - Y. Brown

This school is very rigorous and structured. If your child is not respectful or disciplined then UA will not be the right school for your child. If you are a parent of very little academic involvement, again this is not YOUR school of choice. Universal Academy is a school of high expectations- academically and behaviorally.

This is the most HORRIBLE mistake I have made by sending my daughter to this school. If you haven't experienced difficulty keep your child there and I promise you will. The staff is disrespectful. They curse and as ignorant as it sounds they have also been known to make fun of the kids!!! My child has told me some of the things that was said to her and other kids that you would not believe a grown up or most important an educator would say to a kid. The so called principal or owners are a nightmare. The teachers are rude because she gives them the ok to do so. Take your kids out now!!! I have filed complaints with BBB and has spoken with TEA and watch the news they will one day be shut down. They have violated several government rules and are under investigation.

Honestly, I have not experienced the issues that the other parents are speaking on. My child has been a A&B student ever since I've enrolled her. Not only that she has received many UIL awards. My child had never made commended on a test until she was also enrolled in Universal Academy. What people fail to realize is that Universal Academy has a low tolerance for disrespect from students, which puts them on top. If the students aren't learning how to respect a teacher at home they are learning it at their school. My child will be at Universal Academy till her senior year.

My greatest regret as a parent! My son was bullied in a way you would never expect in 1st grde. For weeks I tried to talk to Mrs. David (the principal) who refused to address the issue. I pulled my son out the day I picked him up early for a doctor appointment and noticed he had a handprint on his face and neck (yes I took pictures and reported it) the principal closed the door to her office and refused to speak with me. I told them I wouldn't bring him back until they provided a solution. After not hearing from them for two weeks I pulled him out. That was the only day Mrs. Davis spoke to me, and all she said was that she was glad she wouldn't have to deal with me. I was shocked! I have never been so disrespected...not to mention the fact that she never had to "deal" with me because she refused to talk to me! I have 4 friends who've pulled their children out for un-addressed bullying. Basically, if your child isn't Indian, they'll be different and will not be accepted. I had to pay $75 a week for 6 months of therapy and had to homeschool! Do not SEND your children here. I wish there were a way those who have been victims here could start an investigation!

I'm so glad to take my son out of this school this year he didn't learn nothing at all plus the number one reason I'm taking him out is because I got a call from the school that my 7 yr old had urinated his pants when I talked with my son he told me that the teacher didn't let him and she told him to be quiet!! I also witness how the teachers scream at the children infront of their parents so unprofessional that made me so angry! This school is also all about money school supplies you have to buy tons copy paper? Large sanitize bottles? And when my child came home with homework he will never bring a pencil to do his homework after purchasing packs after packs? This school is not like elementary schools that that school pictures he never brought home picture packages to buy? I dnt have no school pictures of my son they also dnt communicate well with you no school notes or nothing. Oh and with the school uniforms what a ripoff $30 bucks a shirt when I can buy regular $5.97 at Walmart for a regular elementary school I'm glad I'ma save much more this year 2013-2014 at another school. This school was so worthless and expensive and my son didn't learn nothing.

I used to teach here and this school is a nightmare! Teachers are threatened with loss of their jobs for things such as not paying and joining the PTO and for unsatisfactory State test scores. (Maybe that's why the scores are higher here than one might expect?) There is nepotism in the administration (sisters, mothers, sons, sister-in-laws) and funds don't seem to be spent on necessities for the students. My friend works at the Coppell campus and things seem to be better there probably because the area is more affluent and parents probably expect and demand more. Adminstration is just plain mean, as someone else said in their review. Horrible place to work. I'm glad I was hired by an ISD and able to get out of there. I can't believe this place hasn't be investigated!

I used to teach here also. It was a horrible expierence. The satff is stressed the administrators are mean and the facilities are very poor. I have to say that I do not belive the children learned and were intimidated. I do not understand how the school hasn't been investigated yet as everyone I talk to says there is a problem. As a former teacher there I would NOT allow my child to attend this school. Just because you have Academy in your name doesn't mean you are an academy. Please parents do your research before you allow your child to go there.

This used to be an excellent school, they changed the principal in the last couple years and the dynamic shifted from encouraging parent involvement to an unfriendly, very restrictive, very 'punitive' environment for the students where the parents have little to no involvement except for monetary donations. This school use to have a nice student body 'mix' now the school is 99% Indian. If you want a military school environment then UA is for you. UA's BEST days are behind them!

My both kids go to Universal Academy. I am very happy with their performance in their academics.I am amazed by the efforts teachers put for their personal growth of a child when it comes to personality & discipline as well.It can only happen when teacher spends appropriate time with each student and that teacher is able to outline the personality and intellectual level of each child.It has helped me allot in their personal grooming.For me, education is not the only thing I look into if I send my kids to particular school, Its a place to learn and that definitely includes all the aspects to child's positive growth. I have seen allot of change in my kids owing to their one year education in UA..Feels great that you get results without stressing out your child to any other sources of education like Kumon or Gideon. One does not require any outside education resource if you are going to this school.It has it all.Their extra curricular activities have improved which I am very happy about. Great School,Supportive Teachers, Clean Environment and very responsive PTO..Love it...

I taught at this school for a short time. I left after I realized they had limited curriculum, few working computers, no soap in the bathrooms (students are expected to use hand sanitizer that is brought with their school supplies, teachers who are uncertified (most) are rarely given the support needed to get certified because the administrators know that once teachers are certified they will leave, the library is a joke, teachers have almost no time to plan their lessons, and teachers have been paid weeks late because the school lacked funding (also heath insurance has been canceled for non-payment). Do not believe the hype. This is not better than the public education your student could receive down the street. Blocks away, your student could have access to experienced and educated teachers, working computers, a real library, supplies available for science projects and field trips, professional administrators, and quality music, art, physical education, computer classes, and extracurricular activities. Please visit your local school and compare the difference.

UA is horrible. Teachers & Administration is unqualified (check TEA to see if they are certified). They run this school as a business, profiting off the students by charging uniform violations & outrageous fees. "DieHard" students are leaving to go to ISDs. Your child deserves better than UA.

Both Principals at the Coppell campus are not well qualified. They do not seem to have any leadership experience. There is no transparency. Where exactly is all the money parents are donating going?? I know they receive less funds than a public school, but there is never enough money. Be careful. I went to a great public school here in the DFW area. The children here do not have adequate resources--computers, projectors, desks, microscopes, gym lockers, enough bathrooms etc.

My child is a kindergartner at the Coppell campus. I have 2 older children in MS East and know what elementary schools are suppose to be like. This school falls short in every way except academics. I am impressed they give the kids homework daily in kindergarten w/ nightly reading journals-first grade level reading/math. However this is not a warm school. My father attempted to pick up my child and was verbally berated for not using the crosswalk. I have been screamed/whistled at to get out of the school at a parent night when I hadn't gotten to talk to my son's teacher yet...you'd think there was a fire in the school. I as a parent was talked to like a child...no love - more drill sargeant type attitude, which comes across rude to me. I have asked to volunteer multiple times at this school and have yet to be called.

Initially so much promise was held for Universal Academy of Coppell, however dealing with the adminsitration has been tremendously frustrating and unorganized. How extremely disappointing that a school which held so much potential has fallen short in execution. Bless Ms. Brown for her efforts to make things 'work' in the front office. Communication and organization between the Parents and Administration has been lacking. In the end the children are disadvantaged. Parents beware...

Universal Academy, Irving. This 'school' is a business. Though UA recieves Federal and State monies, there is still the need to charge the students for activities that are free at public schools; failure to pay for these activies results in non-participation. Fines for uniform violations are also considered a form of revenue generation. The number of certified teachers is alarmingly low and the 'cohorts' generally lack administrative certification. Curriculium is inconsistent as is any tpye of unified approach to implementation of scope and sequence. Teachers, especially in the elementary, do not appear to use diversification and rely heavily on yelling and threatening for classroom management. Communication, between UA and parents is poor; communication between staff and teachers is poor.

Universal Academy-Coppell is a great school to attend and work at. The staff are very close and always willing to give helping hands to each other. The test scores from this past school year allowed this school to achieve an Exemplary Rating from the state. The teachers work hard and do the best that they can with little parental involvement in school activities. I would like to see the parents become involved in their child's academic success, but I do not want the parents to be overbearing and unreasonable. I would recommend this school for its academics, but we still need to work on the athletic program.

My son has been going to UA- coppell since 1st grade. The school is awesome and teachers are doing the best. Talking of communication problem, the parents fail to understand that their is something called volunteer or participating in your kids school. Parents who complaint need to ask themselves how much or how many times they have participated in their kids school. Teachers sure could use some extra help. Teachers have more than 20 kids and parents to deal with that is lot of work.

I would not recommend this school to anyone. My son attends this school and the communication is horrible, the respect to parents is lacking and the CEO and the individual over the PK program are so unprofessional. After reviewing their rank, which is only a 5, my child will not return to UA next year. UA had a Tuesday meeting once a month and that is so unorganized I have yet to learn something. I recommend parents to review the test scores at this school of the past three year before putting your child here. The teachers are great, they work with what they have. Kudos to the teachers for putting up with the directors.

I have two children that attend UA-Irving; the only complaint I have is that parents have not taught their children how to behave and respect adults. Teachers are underpaid for what they have to deal with on a daily basis. Then you have parents that want to question what the teacher is doing in the class to their child; the question should be what is their child doing to the teachers. Universal has high expectations of the teachers and the students. Some of the students that attend UA would not last one day in an ISD school, they would get kicked out for disrupting the class. Parents are not allowed in the classroom because they are unprofessional which in return causes the unruly misbehaved student to act out. My children are excelling and exceeding expectations.

My child has attended this school since age 3. The experience was great...in the beginning. Now in 3rd grade I've grown less impressed with the school. Academic program is good but communication with teachers has diminished. Administrative side is horrible. I noticed field trip permission slips noted: Funds for field trips are non-refundable. So when trips are cancelled, what happens to the money? The children earn jean day privileges through good behavior but also have to pay $1. The uniform policy now fines the children for missing uniform items ie., ties, belts, wrong shoes. I bought 3 ties and my daughter lost all of them. She's been fined $2 for a missing tie & belt. We will not return for 2008-09, I've located a public school with an excellent curriculum and results to support.

Universal Academy is a top-notched school! Our daughter has attended this school since pre-K and she continues to excel. This school nurtures an environment of exellence. In addition to having great teachers this school strives in self discipline. What I find the problem to be with most parents is that they allow the children to run them at home and when they come to school they aren't allowed to run-over these teachers at this school. This school demands discipline! Discipline is simply being willing and obedient to do what you are told to do! We love this school (Which includes the staff here and the curriculum.)

This school is going down. The high school courses are taught highly below standards. The kids rode the buses on extreme high temperature days far from school with no air conditioning. Pre-K and K-5 must be perfect kids before attending a field trip. I have been told that the Irving Campus will be remodeled, yet half of the building has no air conditioning. I have been told that since it is chartered, there are no funds. However, according to the school's federal tax return, this school receives more funding than most charter schools in the DFW area. The school has a board but the CEO and administrator (sisters) control everything. They are very unprofessional. This school appears to operate as a business, however it may soon fail.

Universal Academy is an outstanding educational experience for children as well as the families. The academics are accelerated, and include homework as well as supplemental activities that require parental involvement in their child's education. It's exciting to see the music program improving and expanding, and the children's artwork becoming more and more refined as they grow. The main extracurricular activity which I'm most pleased with is their chess club. The children work very hard and compete in chess tournaments. Because of the strong academics, parental involvement is a necessity, which is a strong point of the school. The parents are very tight-knit and know each other. This will be my fourth year at Universal Academy, and I am still excited and thriled that our children have the opportunity to have such an outstanding education. I can highly recomment Universal Academy as a great educational institution.

This is our son's first year at Universal Academy and we plan to keep him there for the next school year. We tell everyone we know about the school. We also love the uniforms, and our son enjoy wearing his tie every day. I encourage any parents looking for a school to check out Universal Academy.

I was raised were color of skin didnt raise any issues. But I soon found out that I wasnt the only one who was being shoved aside. When you did give feed back in which that asked us to do. The (whites) were shoved to the side. I only found this out by talking to another mother who said she was treated very harshly too. She took her son out before I did. I really wished I had sooner.

This is my daughter's first year at UA. I transferred her from public school because I have heard nothing but good things about the curriculum and the teachers. During the first few weeks of school, I had a few problems with her behavior, but that was quickly resolved with the help of the teachers, principals, councelors, and directors. We all joined forces to take care of the problems and that within itself says a lot about the staff at UA. I often find myself dropping in on her classes and her teachers invite me in with open arms. If the Lord says the same, my daughter will continue to go to UA until she graduates. Keep up the good work.

My daughter attended pre-k at this school for a month. I withdrew her because the work given to her wasn't challenging her. I addressed my concerns with the principal who was courteous but no help in solving the problem. He referred me to the director over the pre-k program. The director was rude, disrespectful, and uncaring toward me. Also this school's disciplinary procedure is corporal punishment. I find this type of discplinary action unacceptable. I teach my children violence is not answer and attitude is very important. Universal Academy has the wrong attitude and doesn't accept any constructive feedback from parents. The overall experience was horrible for my daughter and me, the parent. I would never recommend this school to any parent.

I am sad,I am forced to put my daugh. back into IISD.I was fed up with IISD for my son and daugh.(10yr between both.)I prayed looking for a school that offered a high academic level.IISD had no books,rude teachers and was teaching from films and would not let the students take notes. When my son was in IISD I was told there were not enough books, 10 yrs later, the books were out of date. At UA.Academics are awsome, I am a teacher in Children's Church for 3-6 yrs, I can tell which child attends UA and the one that does not. UA children can write,spell,read and behave at church. I have enrolled my child because of down sizing, all of her credits transfered. I had not doubt,when my daughter attended her games, she was well taken care of. UA grew fast because another chrter school closing, growing pains are visual. Good Luck UA! We will miss you!

My child attends Universal Academy and I am very pleased with the academic success that she has received since being at the school. At this time, my child is above reading level and its due to the thanks of the teachers, reading coordinators, after school staff, and the librarian of the school that has made this possible. True, there are some problems that should be worked out but with every good plan come problems but you should not focus on the problem but the solution. Through all of the U.A. problems that have occurred within the years, it still has not effected the education that the teachers have given to those children. But let's just be real, is there any perfect school anywhere? No there is not. If you can not be apart of the solution then you are apart of the problem. As a parent, I am apart of the solution.

My daughter has been in UA since the 4th grade. In recent times the school has seemed to have 'dropped the ball'. They have financial problems with keeping things together, which in consequence has certain members of the staff selling junk food to the kids to slowly straw away from the red zone in debt. Recently the school has chosen to drop grades ten through twelve three weeks before scholl starts again in a mandatory meeting held july 27th 2004. The kids have worked hard to graduate early with honors and extra credits, but with no gurantee that there transcripts will be accepted at new schools if they can find one in time for school to start.

My child attended UA for the first year this year. I am pleased with the teachers and the level of education my child received. My child came from public school with so-called behavior problems. Through a counselor I changed schools and was pleased. My child did not have one behavior problem beside the normal talking and giggling when you're not supposed to be. But if you don't get those giggles out sometimes I would be concerned. The school overall doesn't look great, but I volunteered as much as possible to see exactly what was really going on. I will admit I did see some questionable behavior sometimes here and there, but no one school is perfect. During TAKS time, I was very well pleased with the level of education the kids were getting. My son wil be returning this year and is looking foward to returning also.

They will tell you that parent involvement is required however as long as you do not share you own opinion on something, you are fine but if you have a problem or an issue (like no soap or toilet paper in bathroom) you are quickly pushed aside. Most of the times the water fountains do not work. If you child graduates from this school, be prepared to hear 'school not qualified' on your scholarship reject letters.

The teachers at Universal Academy are highly intelligent, friendly and truly teach children how to succeed! As long I am in DFW my son will attend Universal Academy.

My Daughter has completed 3 years at Universal Academy. She is approaching her forth year. I love the school. I Volunteer almost everyday. The open door policy procedure to sit in on classes when deemed necessary. They expect and require parent involvement.
