    "I think the state needs to come in and close the doors on that terrible school! IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILD TO GET A GOOD EDUCATION, DON'T SEND THEM TO UC TEAMS!!!!!!! YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN MORE AND PERFORM BETTER ON THE STATE TEST BY ATTENDING PLAINFIELD PUBLIC SCHOOLS! UC TEAMS IS DEFINITELY OVERRATED!!!!"

    "UC TEAMS is a top ranked school and well-deserving of its ranking! My son is currently a student in the K-2 program and he has grown tremendously in character education and academics. Although there are a few new teachers they are mentored and consistently perform professional development and training almost daily. I have personally and professionally seen the growth in the administration and teachers and I am so proud of their First Graduating Class!! Every student earned COLLEGE CREDITS while at UC TEAMS for 2 years at UCC and 100% went on to colleges (some 4-year and some 2-year institutions). I want my children to be there for high school and participate in this REAL college-prep program. No other high school around can compare to this college program only offered at UC TEAMS!!! Keep up the good work!!"

    "I strongly think that parents should think seriously before putting their child in this school. It is a big joke. Look at their first graduation rate! How many of their students have been accepted into prestigious colleges? Parents, I warn you, think before sending your child to this school. They should be investigated!"

    "It took me awhile to decide if I wanted to leave a comment espically after reading some of these replies. I didn't want to be the parent bashing any teacher because I understand that teaching has to be an enormous, thankless job. I truly appreciate the efforts of every teacher, including those at UC TEAMS. I think the bottom line is prents send their child/children to a charter school for the hope of something better. A better circulum, a better atmosphere, a better environment for their child. I mean isn't that why the waiting list is so long.....bc of the hope for something "better". I know that's why I choose this school, and I have been very disappointed. I don't feel like this school lives up to the portrait it tries to display. I'm not pointing fingers but I'm choosing not to send my child back. I don't think he received a quality education last year and I don't think he was in a safe environment. My son told me of countless times of him being unsupervised and fights happening. How he felt nothing was offered to him and that teachers didn't care. I don't think his educational needs were met....if ur child needs any extra help please DO NOT SEND THEM TO UC TEAMS."

    "I am a teacher at this school and I am deeply disturbed by the comments I see on here. Every place of employment has its issues, particularly at the administrative level, particularly in a community where parents are socioeconomically disadvantaged. I come to work everyday positive and determined to help my students learn not only about content, but about life, love, and happiness. I have spent weekends developing creative and engaging lessons for my students, and gaining their respect and trust so I can carry out those lessons in a compassionate learning environment. I speak with the utmost confidence that I achieve this, despite whatever issues or chastisements over dress or blah blah blah, I receive from the administration. I do my job proudly. As for the educator who thinks their collegues come for a paycheck-- your severe misjudgement reflects upon a severe misunderstanding of the teaching profession. If I wanted a paycheck, I would get a job at a real business, a real corporation, and be paid twice as much for half the stress. As for the parents, learning starts at home. It's easy to place blame where one's own lack of endeavors falls, fittingly, short."
