My two oldest children went to UPP for the past two years and I am very pleased with the progress they both have made. I'm not sure how they got a 6 out of 10 but my children both excel academically. I am very saddened that I had to move out of the area.

My daughter has attended this school since she was 3 years old and began in developmental preschool. They have been fantastic to work with in terms of her educational and special needs. I know that my daughter would not be at the academic level she is now without the attentiveness of the school staff and personnel. They really care about their kids. The ladies in the front office are fabulous!

This Is a great School, we have had all four children in this school, they love attending.They adore their teachers "we hear their word of wisdom" quite often at home...the entire staff is very attentive,they all know the children very well, most by name. The children are always attended by staff from entry to leaving. That is important to us we feel they are fairly safe and not left to wonder about. The after school programs have proved great for our children, we love attending the children are always excited. Communication is great with the teacher's usually the same day response.The staff expects parent involvement, which I think is a plus for the children,They serve our family well. If you are looking for a negative...okay parking.

My family and I love this school and the teachers we have met so far that work here. I recomend this school to every parent in the U.P. area. My daughter excels due to the support she recieves. I cant thank them enough for everything they have done for her. We cant wait for the first day of school this year.

My daughters love this school. We are a military family and I am a very involved parent. My children have been to many schools all over the country and this is the best so far. We love it here so much that my husband and I have decided to make this place our home. The teachers and staff are very supportive of their students. The patience they have is so un real. I love UPP and we are here to stay.

I would not recommend this school at all. The staff does not communicate well. The principal doesn't address issues and always sides with staff even when it is clear the staff is at error. The school is very unorganized and the school after hours programs and events are very unorganized.

We love this school and can't say enough about the whole staff. We enjoyed a great working relationship with our daughter's teacher. The personal attention and genuine interest in our daughter shows through in how far she has come during her kindergarten year. We're so thankful.

Fantastic school! All of my children began their academic career at UPP. The faculty is highly competent, and provides our children with far more than the 'basics' in the foundation of their academic excellence. Personal attention to each student and a genuine desire for their success, each and every year.

The new principal is so willing to make the school better no matter the cost and no matter the amount of work she needs to put in, she makes the atmosphere better for hard work on the part of the students and parents

The new principal in a breath of fresh air and really works to get things done, a firecracker. My sons have thrived in this school. One son had Mrs. Allen, who won the entire District's Teacher of the Year away last year. She is SO fantastic and a great reading specialist. My sons LOVE this school, and who can ask for a better review than that? This school is better than the private Catholic school that I had them in. They have lots of staff, reading specialists. The PE coach is great. The new music teacher is really good. Even the menu got better. The only downside is the PTA.
