As long as your child fits into a box, you are fine. Don't expect this school to work with you if you child has special needs. The principal and his teacher just spent time reminding me how much my child is unlike the other children. I'm sure they made him feel this way too, as he suffered major anxiety issues that were only present in school.

Good things about Uintah: location, school building, parent involvement. The test scores are high, but I really think this is largely because it pulls from a more affluent neighborhood with involved parents rather than from anything the school itself is doing "right." The building itself is very nice. Clean, secure, good natural lighting for a school, etc. There are some nice programs and the parents are relatively involved. On the negative side: class size is very large. They really cannot do much for kids outside of the norm (especially if they are very bright or unique thinkers). Also, I am not impressed with the new Principal. She has almost zero communication with the parent and in the little communication she does have it does not feel that she really cares about directly engaging the parents or the community. I was at school quite often and her presence at the school, other than appearing at school-wide meetings for announcements, was minimal. She inherited a great school so it is probably easy to coast, but she could do so much more. The parents are so very eager to be involved, but there doesn't seem to be the responsiveness back from the administration.

The student to teacher ratio is unrealistic. My son was terrified of his tyrannical teacher because he needed more one on one time but was screamed at when he approached her. It's not a good school for any child who needs more time, or has an IEP.

We have been on the private-public fence for a few years now, and continue to choose Uintah for its amazing parent involvement, loving, smart, enthusiastic teachers, and great facilities. I think there is a truism in that you will not get excellence in every teacher experience regardless if you are paying hefty private school tuition or are in a public school. I think that the drawback continues to be that the school must t"each the test" and that takes away from room for more innovation, creativity in teaching, and new learning techniques such as open age learning, so those will same math level all end up in multi-age classroom for math, those needing more attention with reading might all be reading level gathered for that segment, etc. When we had large class sizes in 3rd G. the Principle responded immediately and highered a new teacher! Awesome can do attitude here at Uintah.

My children and I have loved Uintah Elementary. The teachers are kind, attentive, hard-working, and fun. My children have excelled at this school. The parental involvement is great. The only negative is the large class sizes, especially in the higher grades. My son is in 5th grade, and there are 34 students in his class.

Uintah is great because the teachers, administrators, and parents all work together for the kids!

We enjoyed Uintah. Parental involvement was very high. Good teachers made all the difference. The art program was excellent. It was mostly ran by volunteers, PTA and some other moneys. There is a good neighborhood feeling. Kids learn standard-based education in a loving and supporting environment. There are solid options for accelerated learners as well as special needs children. There are other after school-affiliated programs that my son attended: Spanish and Skiing. I loved it.

My daughter is a 1st grader this year and so far LOVES her school! From my perspective she is learning a lot, is having fun, and has made good friends. There seems to be a good balance of creativity and academics. My daughter has made so much progress this year in her reading. I am very happy with Uintah so far.
