United Day School 2

Very south Texas strict environment, punishments handed out as negative tokens for things like, asking to go to the bathroom during class, forgetting a pencil in your locker. I also think uniforms are outdated, but are very popular here. Many teachers, especially the ones who have been around a while, are not certified. Parents are not encouraged to come to school for lunch. Just really misses the boat, it really about a controlling environment, instead of *learning*, thinking critically, or engendering a love of learning. Really need a head of school and committee committed to best practices, achievement and nurturing academic and whole child growth. Anyone of any consequence graduate from UDS? Probably not. Need new leadership, better quality teachers, lose the uniforms, and realize a great school is not tied to archaic methods of controlling children.

This is not only the best school in the entire city of Laredo, it is one of the very best private schools in the entire state. My two daughters have been going to UDS for five years now, and as a parent I can see that they are getting a first rate education. This school reminds me of the public schools back in the 1940s and 50s. They teach the old fashioned way using new technology. I wouldn't let my daughters go to any other school, period!

United Day (UUS) is located in a city where quality is not the priority. UDS is the top school in Laredo, but it has slowly become less demanding for excellence, and accepting mediocraty. Its teachers used to be top notch, usually having teached in UDS for more than 20 years, but many of them have left, and new mediocre teachers were established. Not that most teachers are excellent, but the few that are not up to par make the school look bad. As a student, I am worried for the school's performance and think this should be known.

The academics only seem exceptional because of the how poor Laredo schools actually are. On a national level, quite frankly, United Day in some aspects can't compete. Sure they make it in their local high schools (bad ones), but it catches up to them later on. The mathematics program has suffered. Struggling students pull back other students causing repetitive explanations of lessons that should have been learned the first. Extracurriculars include basketball, some music, volleyball, and flag football. Not too shabby for a school with less than 400 kids. Overall, United Day needs to step it up to consider itself a top-tier school.

If you are looking for a school that challenges your child in academics look no further. The teacher to child ratio is excellent and the school is constantly upgrading in technology.
