UA Coppell has an ACE's program, that allows students to receive a well rounded educational experience. It allows students to participate in subjects that interest them. This program is in addition to the rigorous academic program offered at the school.

UA has met six distinction last academic school year: Academic Achievement in Reading/ELA; Academic Achievement in Mathematics; Academic Achievement in Science; Academic Achievement in Social Studies; Top 25 Percent Closing Performance Gaps; and Postsecondary Readiness. I applaud the new principal in her efforts in achieving this level of excellence.

My child gave the G/T test in June and we are still waiting for the results.Now they have different teachers to teach a subject and a group of 4 classes follow the same pattern.School says that the students of all these 4 classes are at same level.I am shocked since my child is much advanced than the kids in other 3 classes.I am not under estimating any kid and I do believe each kid has his own pace to learn but then why do they claim they have advanced classes for bright kids.My child was in a advance class last year too.If they do not depend on the test results for grouping kids why do they take test at the first place?I loved the school last year but cannot say the same this year.If the same continues I might pull my kid out before the end of the year.

Teachers and students move from one class to another.No organized pattern for the students in the class.It's a mess particularly with the change in school's principal.The school lacks proper communication with parents.School is downgrading for sure.

COMING FROM A TEACHER: I would NEVER send my child here. Unsatisfactory "gym" and "cafeteria," there is no kitchen you must send your child with lunch or have it delivered. Staff members loose children or put them on the wrong bus, and switch the teachers and students around regularly, one day they may have this teacher and take this class and the next day is totally different. Your first grader could end up in a class with fifth graders. Emotionally challenging for the students. School is always is a state of disarray and confusion.

The administration hires the majority of its teachers from alternative teaching certification programs, so most of the teachers at UA Coppell have absolutely no classroom experience; and the administration places many expectations upon teachers that cannot realistically be met with the poor training that new teachers receive (teacher turnover rate over the past several years has been about 50%). At teacher training, the teachers were instructed to lie to parents about this being their first year teaching. The school offers a "Gifted and Talented" program called ACES in which P.E. teachers, fine arts teachers are required to teach subjects to children in which they have no certified expertise. Last year, the administration had teaching aides (who are not certified teachers) teaching kindergarteners for as long as four months. Today, the school moved several Coppell teachers to UA Irving (and for elementary children, it is traumatic to suddenly lose a teacher). Teachers were not supposed to tell their students that they are leaving. Also, I see that the "parents" who are posting glowing reviews of UA use a lot of terms that the administrators have used to market the school.

Universal is unlike any other school in the area!!! Accelerated learning, Gifted and Talented program, Golf, Young Inventors programs and much more. This school received the States highest academic award in both 2012-2013 and 2013-2014. The school has expanded it's facility and it's student base. Universal Academy has a proven record of academic success and truly focuses on the belief that "All Children are Gifted and Talented". As a parent I know my child is being prepared to achieve Global educational success.

Beginning of a new year and with just 3 days into the school year , UA has already started to back track on its words and promises to be fair to all children . They gave the kids a GT test end of last yr and parents of children who did not get in went complaining and crying and now they are told that there kids will also be tested . If the school admin and rules change every minute to please/carter to certain parents then its really sad . We parents need to understand that the children who got in need to see the value in their achievement and not that lets fail and get our parents to clean up the mess ... SAD ON THE MANAGEMENT TO SHOW FAVORITISM ONCE AGAIN

MY son will be in 5th grade fall 2014 and wanted to be on the swim team which is sad because I had to tell him he can not be a part of it since there is no swimming pool at this campus so the pack kids on a bus everyday for swim practice with no assigned seats so my 10 yr soon could be sitting next to a 15 or 16 yr old 9th grader. There is a huge difference between a 10 yr old boy and a 16 yr old boy or girl for that matter. This is not set up age appropriate and these facts were not given to me until I asked. Patents ask the questions because this Academy does not volunteer information.

This school is more like a daycare then a school. Education is very important to our family, so this was just not a good fit for our family. Also, not all the kids get to go on field trips, it's like a lottery so if your child gets lucky enough to get picked they are so excited but if they don't get picked they are devastated!

This UA is in Coppell, not Flower Mound, so don't be confused. We like UA. We moved our two children to UA in the fall of 2013 because they were not being challenged at their CISD elementary school (hardly any homework at all), and their school focused less on the basics (reading, writing and arithmetic) and more on technology. We love technology - we have computers at home on which the kids can practice typing, but when their spelling and writing is terrible (corrections not necessary), there is a problem. Our 5th grade daughter has A LOT of homework every night which is a challenge, but that year is the transition year. Our son in 4th grade has much less homework but is aware that next year will be different and recess. We also chose to move our daughter before talk of middle school since she won't be going there. We researched and verified with our counselor that middle school has problems with drugs, sex and girl drama (cliches, bullying, etc.) so we chose UA. We like the uniforms (removing competitiveness, clothing disagreements and they learn to dress professionally) and no makeup (she's too young) as well as UA's higher expectations and less distractions from learning.

The school is excellent for PRE K amazing Satori learning . Once we hit higher grade, we have had cancellation of PTA meeting , no replies to the email or letters . heard that kids were made to stand in class for 8 hrs due to no chairs ,missed PAID LUNCH , no experiment equipment so kids have to wait to get their turn among other admin issues . Also heard in some classes that if you go complaining the kids get the brunt of it as the kids are now scared to take a note to class as it will get them in trouble . Lot of favoritism been done to help preferred children go to field trips and then a letter goes to parents explaining it was a lottery but the kids who were selected they get a letter saying it was due to their dedication and peer approval . Right a 5 /6 yr old is able to appreciate their peer.Hopefully the school check these reviews and wake up else they will have a massive shock during re enrollment . Its the KIDS and parents who work hard with the kids at school to deliver the results it s joint effort and its not all school or teachers .. its teachers , Parents and kids in this TOGETHER. , the loser in this is the kids if they are removed which is sad .

The worst office staff I have experienced in my life....one of them stands out, if you visit the desk even once....you will know what I mean. They are rude and talk down to you, really wondering if this is healthy for a school trying to build its reputation.

I have heard pros and cons about all the charter and public schools here. Again, its all about the teachers who are responsible for the school rating. Please do not rate bad if you find some not so good teachers in the school. My daughter is in 2nd grade and just loves her teachers and friends at this school. It is very good when you compare public schools here.

I love this school. My kids have benefited immensely from its well structured academic program. This school caters to the individual needs of all students and promotes healthy competition. My kids are brilliant and operate at a higher level of reasoning and analytical thinking, thanks to all the hard work put in by the teachers and the parents. Yes, there is homework, but that is life and there's always going to be "home" work! Better start early to set some good habits in motion!

There is nothing wrong with the school for fifth grade up. These grades are a stage during which children go through some pretty serious changes. Starting around this age children's brains actually prune their neurons, resulting in behaviors that didn't occur before. Parents assume any change in their child that appears negative must be the fault of the school. At the same time that parents are easing up off that their kids, assuming they are responsible enough to do things like reach into a backpack to retrieve completed homework to turn in, the expectations at school are increasing. So you have a perfect storm of reduced parental involvement, increased responsibilities, and dramatic changes in behavior that results in missing assignments, behavior problems, etc. Blaming the teachers and the school, parents withdraw their children at the natural transition after 5th grade. This results in a small middle school which cannot support the electives and special programs that a large one could, so new students are rare after 5th grade ends. Small classes are unappealing to adolescents, and student withdrawals increase through middle school as a result. It's a vicious cycle.

My daughter studied here back in 2011 (till 2nd grade) and it was good then for those grades. I'm looking to have her join back only for 5th grade (due to various reasons). I saw a previous comment about being awful for 5th grade. Can anyone share some light on what i need to look into that may be of concern?

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
