    "Academically this school seems great. We're new this year but the kids seem to be happy and thriving. I wanted a small school and a strong sense of community like our previous school. It is a small school but unless you're "in" the community you're definitely an outsider and made to feel incredibly unwelcome. The teachers and staff are wonderful and have been great and incredibly approachable. The parents on the other hand are not friendly or approachable at all. Forget welcoming small talk, they don't even smile at new parents. My husband and I have both tried making friends and had no luck at all. It's too bad too because we have a lot to offer and are more than willing to help both in volunteering and financially but after this first six months we certainly won't be volunteering or donating. At least the kids are happy."

    "18 reasons to choose UDA 1. Good teachers 2. Sound curriculum 3. Relatively high test scores 4. Small classroom size 5. Small school (2 classrooms for every grade) 6. It is a K through 8 school, which means one drop-off and one pick-up if you have more than one kid 7. Lots of opportunities to volunteer 8. Lots of cool field trips with parent chaperones and parent drivers (more opportunities to volunteer) 9. Centrally located 10. Very diverse student body (economic, racial, ethnic, linguistic, religious, and political diversity). The school has multiracial families, LGBT families, military families, and families with adopted children. Parents come from all walks of life: lawyers, nurses, plumbers, artists, university professors, social workers, teachers, bartenders, students, etc. 11. Cool uniforms 12. Usually only one half-day a month (usually the last Friday of each month) 13. The schedule is 8 am to 3 pm for K-3rd, and 8 am to 3:30 pm for grades 4th-8th. If you have younger and older kids, you can pick them all up at 3:30. 14. Decent (but pricey) aftercare program (with discount for lower income families) 15. Decent (but pricey) lunches (no discounts)"

    "Where to begin...this is a great little school, I'm so thrilled to have my child in a school that values the arts, performing and visual, that believes in physical education and delivers quality every day. I've seen first hand what a difference there is through having kids engage in the act of performing, speaking in public, it's amazing. There is such a good "vibe" at this school, it's palatable upon entering! I couldn't be anymore pleased! Looking forward to the next Performing Arts Night!"

    "As a parent at UDA, I find the 11/13/13 posting dismaying. There is certainly discord at UDA right now regarding recent changes at the school, and everyone is entitled to their opinions. Reasonable people should be able to have a mature debate about their differences of opinion. Accusing parents of making their kids suffer, or suggesting they should leave UDA, is neither helpful or beneficial."
