Chief Umtuch is an amazing school. The principal and teachers are wonderful and really care about the students. There are many after school activities for students to participate in throughout the year. The Aspire program is extremely challenging and we are fortunate to be a part of it. Aspire students aren't spoiled or treated any different from other students. This school is one of the greatest benefits of living in the area.
Great aspire program. Very challenging. Also great drama and band and jazz band which my son is in. Some teachers are better then others but you will find that at any school. We live outside the school area but a bus comes to pick up my son everyday so he can attend with other gifted students.
This school is not academically rigorous at all. My child is in the aspire program and thats just to make the distict look good because the classes are not at all challenging for my child. Also the school has no sports teams, and really not much of anything extracurricular wise.The teachers don't push the kids at all. We are moving out of the district to find better schools.
the teachers here are fine, but it seems that this school will just treat those spoiled students in the aspire program better than the other children. it is sad and disappointing. my daughter feels insulted as well.
