    "This is my 3rd year at UICS. It's not perfect but they are getting there. Each year new and wonderful ideas are being added to UICS' program. This year I am so excited and I look forward to welcoming in a new bunch of students. We have and exciting year planned for the students. However, I am going to need the help of all my parents for this to work. Turn off the TV, put the video/hand games away until the weekend. Read to your child, have your child read to you, then read together. Don't have time to read to your child, download books from the Free Library of Philadelphia - it's FREE! I downloaded books this summer and listened to them while I was working around in my house and in my garden. It's great!"

    "This is my sons first and last year at this school. i have had nothing but bad experiences at this school from the very first day. Ms Dixon does not know how to care for your child. She leaves them on field trips, doesnt call in case of emergencies,leaves the children in a class by themselves, calls out of work all too often and talks to parents like she doesnt have a clue in the world. Now on to the school, this is the most unorganized school place i have ever been involved in. Half of the time when you come to pick ur kid up they do not know where they are. the phones are never picked up and lets not even talk about the unprofessionalism between secretary and parents. Principals are ot responsive to your requests. the only person in that school that has any sense is Ms.Saaba"

    "I think its not a good school because they critacise they students too much.If you not smart or good they frown on you. Also half the staff is Muslim and they show favotism to their own poeple."

    "As a former employee of the school, I can honestly say that the administration could care less about the children. The teachers try their hardest to push the children to succeed, while administration worries about padding their wallets and their resumes. The school district of Philadelphia is making a HUGE mistake if they allow Universal to take over any of the renaissance schools."
