    "It's been great getting to know the staff, parents, and of course students at UDA this year. At this school we finally feel like we're part of a strong and diversified community that cares for the arts just as much as they care for the sciences. I'm glad my children will be receiving a well rounded education."

    "My child still attends here ONLY because of the friends developed over the years and am very much looking forward to this year being over. After graduation thank goodness we will no longer have to put up with the lies, deception and bullying from administration and mainly Board of Directors. I really hope for the families that will continue on after this year things get better. For any new parents proceed with caution.Try not to be blinded or fooled by all the pretty colors to come. There are plenty of negative reviews on this school for a reason just scroll thru."

    "The facts: -High Test Scores -High Quality/Caliber Teachers -Fiscally Sound, Well Managed -Very Strong, Solid New Director -Really Happy, Dedicated Parent Group -394 Happy, Focused, Students -Now State-of-the-art Brand New School Facility for 2015 -Current Site has fantastic grounds, plenty of PE and recess playground space, large classrooms, charming outdoor lunch area I truly believe that the few negative comments posted about this school below are in fact representative of a few people who are choosing to use this forum as a way to air their own agenda, which has little or nothing to do with the quality of the education being delivered and the way the school operates. For anyone using this site to seriously evaluate the school, just come and see it in action, see the 99.999% of happy engaged parents onsite volunteering, see for yourself."

    "i can not believe my daughter came home today talking about she has to use a porter potty for a bathroom. This school is horrible. Why. Really. What is going on. They claim it it wonderful but why does my middle school child have to use such bad bathrooms. The board needs to get it together. I want to believe in this school but when my daughter comes home and says she almost threw up because of the unsanitary conditions it is not good. Im taking her out of this school ASAP!"

    "Well, we're off to a new year at UDA. Let me lay out the facts. The school currently provides a very good educational opportunity in an inviting and accepting community for your children. Actually it is quite exceptional in the latter regard and you would be hard pressed to find a better educational/experiential/social environment for your kids in a school. The new Director is very capable and motivated, both in expertise and attitude, based on my many interactions with her and I expect her to take off and excel from where the last one left off. That may be enough for you. However, you can't ignore the state of the parent community today. There are distinct groups of parents, some critical, some supportive, and many that are just either not interested or motivated to worry about those interactions. Setting aside anyone being right or wrong, it is simply a part of the community at this point that is a reality. Whether it matters to you or not is a matter of your interests. But we shall see how the Board chooses to proceed in creating a place where all parents can feel comfortable and secure contributing."
