    "This school is unbelievable . My daughter just began her second day of school as a Kindergartner. My daughter was getting ready to get picked up from school. Somehow my daughter was not being watched carefully and she escaped from the school and got locked out with no one outside the school .......... My 5 year old was banging on the door to get back in. When i got to the school and was picking her up, one of the teacher in front of other parents told me that I need to teach her my daughter how to stay still. She also told me that I was lucky that they found her. Then she said she was going to talk to my daughter's teacher like she should be in trouble. Could any of you parents think of what could of happened if no one found her? Someone could have taken my baby away from me or she could have gotten hurt. I just don't understand. We trust these people with the safety of our children, yet when they mess up, they want to blame the parents and the small children? The need to be accountable!"

    "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."
