    "I moved to PA to provide a better living and education for my children. when I realized my house sat on the boarder (right across the street)of the Salisbury Township school district. I was so upset I had already my down payment down and my dreams had been crushed in minutes. My children attended this school for two years But I was determined to move them an i did to a charter school in Bethlehem. It was the biggest mistake I have made. They where not challenged. My very gifted child failed a section in the PSSA her second year there for the first time in her life she has always had the highest score in her grade or the ranked in the top 3 . she was very upset and my son who started the charter school in kindergarten was not being challenged at all. I waited two years later I moved them right back to Allentown district and i am completely happy and very satisfied with my sons second grade teacher Mrs, Edwards. She keeps me informed, and does not let him slack at all she also challenges him. She reminds me of the teacher I had growing up. The Office staff can be a bite abrasive but I think its for the kids safety. security is great with kids and so is principal."

    "Union Terrace Elementary in my opinion is the best in the Allentown School District. My Daughter has attended for four years now. She really has a very postive attitude about school. And has had amazing teachers she and i both loved! I have gone on field trips and participated in classroom activities. And have been very impressed with the school through out these years."

    "When my daughter and I first moved here i heard HORRIBLE things about UT and was in the process of trying to get authorized to send my baby to another school due to the low test scores UT had. I went to the school and met with the Principle and Vice Principle, they took us on a tour of the school (not very impressive but not bad), they asked for the opportunity to have my daughter as a student and prove that UT was NOT as bad as reports were claiming, I then told them my expectations for my daughters educational stimulation and safety, they said they could deliver both. This is her second year at UT and WE absolutely LOVE IT! The 2 teachers she has had thus far (2nd & 3rd grades) are AMAZING I could not have asked for better teachers for my baby, the Principle is very nice, the front office can be a slight bit abrasive but very efficient, the kids....some foul language and questionable behavior but it has never effected my baby, all in all I will say this, even though the time has come for us to leave Allentown, I will not leave until she graduates from UT because of the teachers and the way they have taught and inspired my baby. Miss Strobel & Mrs. McElroy are AWESOME"

    "Absolutely awful! This school is completely worthless. The staff and administrators do not care and will not invest time in the children that go to school here. They don't care whether or not they learn, they just pass them through to the next grade to make them someone else's problem next year. My daughter started at this school 2 years ago with straight A's for the two year prior to UT. In the two years she has been at UT, not only is she no longer a straight A student, but she is failing. We have tried to contact the school and work with them to help her get caught back up, but they just don't care. They get frustrated and annoyed when we try to get involved. They tell us she is lazy. How then was she pulling straight A's for two consecutive years? She's not lazy, they are. We have talked with several people working at the school, the principal, some teachers, and some office staff. Not a single one of them sends their children to this school or any in the ASD. All school their children outside of the district. That says a lot for what they think of the education they are providing and their confidence in their co-workers' abilities."
