    "University is an incredible school! Our daughter has attended since kindergarten and we are constantly impressed by the professionalism by teachers and staff. It is clear that they care deeply for each child. It has been amazing to see our daughter become inspired by her teachers. She is a very smart child, yet she is always challenged to dig deeper, think critically, and to problem solve. We have never felt, nor witnessed anything that would make us believe that this school "teaches to the test." There are plenty of state-mandated tests, yes. However, the teachers and staff do a great job helping the kids stay relaxed. We truly believe University is one if the best schools in the state. We are grateful for all they have invested in our child."

    "Unfortunately, I am not impressed with this school. Having come from out of state and this being a small town in the Midwest, we had high hopes for a more open minded and genuine teaching staff, because of the diversity that comes with being so close to the university. Our child came in surpassing the end of year benchmarks but we have to press them for more challenging work and have only received negative feedback from the primary teacher (although other teachers give only positive) and principal who suggested that although high achieving, that doesn't mean that my child is necessarily gifted (who even says that, without testing no less). Don't be an out of the box kinda parent because the school is a very conventional, by the book, teach to the test kind of school. It's difficult to find a non religious affiliated private school in this area and the one charter has a mile long waiting list even for siblings. I've heard that there is a new charter coming in the next year with a much more challenging curriculum. Overall, it will due for now but we are certainly on the hunt for an alternative."

    "I love University Elementary School. This is a fabulous school with dedicated, respectful, and professional teachers and staff. We have a new Principal since last year(2012-2013) and she is wonderful, very approachable. The diversity is wonderful with kids from all around the world. We have an International Potluck and Talent Show each school year that celebrates our amazing population of students and families. As a parent of three kids who have and currently attend UES, I couldn't ask for a better school to help my children thrive and grow."

    "Our son started going to here in 3rd grade and is now in 5th grade. Even though there is a lot of diversity and opportunities there IS still bullying and he endured this in both 3rd and 4th grade because of his weight, he wears glasses, his hair color, just about anything the other kids could think of they did it. Teachers both years were contacted about it and said it was taken care of but nothing really was ever done about it because it continued to happen. As far as his education, he has always been a bright student and always excels past his current standards for his age so that hasn't changed. I think they need to implement new punishment rules for bullying and actually do something to students that continue to do the bullying."

    "I can't say I like this school, because I don't like the principal very much, but the teachers are mostly very good."
