    "I disagree with the parent that said the school is a poor example of public education. The school has a wonderful approach as to how children shoulde be best educated, the problem lies in administation. The administrator is NOT knowledgeable about what the teachers should be teaching or even if some of the teachers are teaching.The second grade teacher is a wonderful example of a good teacher, and there's an assisistant that's equally as good. The other teachers have the potential of being good teachers with the right training. overall my experience at the school has been as good as one would expect from any other public school. There are some changes that need to happen without questions, but let's not throw the baby out with the bath water! Parents who appreciate this kind of approach to teaching should support the school and get somebody who can make decisions about the school to listen to them about their complaints about the administrator."

    "I agree with the parent who said that this school is a poor example of public education. The administrator is poor and likes to listen to herself talk. She ignores parents suggestions and just continues "business as usual." She should be replaced. Also, Math is not taught until the children are in 2nd grade, yet they expect them to take a Math test at the end of first grade. This school is a joke. Stay away!!"

    "UH Charter is part of the University of Houston Main Campus and it is also surrounded by the Third Ward. Many students are there because their parents work for the University so despite its location, the school is very diverse. UH Charter consist of K-5th grade with one class for every grade and two teachers for every class. The school is relatively small and could really use an expansion. It looks cluttered and unorganized but somehow, the staff there make it work. The meals are catered because there is no kitchen on site. There are no computer labs, no art labs, and no traditional library. The older kids are given assigned laptops to learn on in the classrooms. The art and music classes are taught in the cafeteria seating area. Kids can check out books from a small selection of books located in the middle of the main room. There is a lack of communication at the school. Notices are usually posted on walls where parents don't normally look at when they're rushing to drop off their kids. With all the resources out there to communicate with parents, such as twitter, facebook, text, emails, the school rarely utilizes these."

    "I can't say enough about our experience with UH Charter School. One thing I absolutely LOVE about the lottery system is that it creates a classroom of very diverse kids... With at least one commonality that their parents are definitely focused on education to seek out enrollment at a charter school. So it's the best environment I can think of, really. All the quality of a private school education, but free. And exposure to all different kinds of kids, but even the lower SES kids come from homes with active parents where education is valued. It's been almost a magical combination in our case. I feel so lucky that my kids got in. The teachers, curriculum and social skill building are phenomenal at this school... Reading through other reviews, some people just don't realize where the true value lies here. Unfortunate."

    "This is school has helped my child greatly with self esteem and advancement. The is great teacher/parent involvement and makes everyone very excited to attend school. They have an excellent after school program that the college students interact with the kids as well so I think this is a great diverse environment. They have cooking class on Fridays and Spanish and many extra great activities that really involve the children. This is a free charter school. We are an innovative elementary school (kindergarten through fifth grade) focusing on the constructivist approach to education. We aim to promote reasoning, autonomy, and community throughout the child's day and life at UHCS. We have 6 multiage classes guided by lead and assistant teachers. I call this Houston's Best Kept secret in education!"
