My daughter attended University Cooperative school for 6 years, and it was a profoundly positive experience for everyone in our family. The teachers are excellent: highly motivated, creative and inspiring. The parents became our community (with its wonders, bumps, bruises, laughter and joy). Our daughter left the school with confidence, great writing skills and great public speaking skills; she is a strong advocate for herself, and better at teaming than most of the adults I know. It was a wonderful six years.
The University Cooperative Ultimate Frisbee team competed in Spring Reign, in Burlington Washington this past weekend. (Spring Reign is the largest youth ultimate tournament in the country -- there was even an elementary school team from Los Angeles present!) It came as no surprise to most of us who are familiar with the school that the U-Coop team won the highly coveted Spirit Award . It is yet another example of the way in which this school instills the most important values in their students. Values that will enable them to be gracious team players and make positive and lasting impressions on the world. Congratulations!
This is an extraordinary school. Talented, caring teachers. There is a strong focus on social and emotional learning as well as academics. Kids are treated with respect and treat each other with respect and kindness. A very supportive environment where learning is fun
Small, supportive environment with dedicated teachers, engaging community of students and parents. Excellent ratios for learning and play matters! It's also a bargain for a private school.
University Cooperative is an amazing school and a supportive community. By recognizing and responding to the needs of children where they are at, respecting and encouraging their questions, allowing for the limits of their developing capacities, and having the courage to build a school around this well this is how U. Coop provides the conditions, the safe haven, where children learn how to learn their way and in their time. University Cooperative School might not be the right school for everyone but it is definitely the place for generous parents who have the desire and ability to be actively engaged in their children's education and to preserve the best things in childhood for them while they are developing skills and friendships for life.
Excellent school. Great place to raise a child. Hands on learning. Just wish it went past 5th grade!
Caring, child centered program with mixed age classroom centering on problem solving, age appropriate leadership, music, language and arts. Very committed parents and teachers.
The accademic programs are excellent. It has music, art, and movement specialists, as well as spanish instruction. Parent involvement is high.
