    "This school is not a safe environment for children to learn. My children will not be returning next year. The regular public schools are safer. I would strongly advise against sending your child here. I strongly recommend that the State Department of Education, or the group with jurisdiction over this institution, conduct a thorough investigation of this school. This school is not at all what it pretends to be. They will have to answer for the many children who have been negatively impacted because of attendance here while they have turned a blind eye. I am truly disheartened because I sent my children here thinking it was a good school and instead they have been bullied and have learned many negative behaviors which I will have to work at undoing over the summer. Send your children elsewhere!"

    "I find it disheartening that individuals feel the need to come this site to make a public complaint with very inaccurate information. The community needs to realize what Charter Schools are up against and truly understand that there is always a way to resolve a matter. Become apart of the solution as opposed to undermining and demeaning the work of educators who spend countless hours working to ensure that students receive a quality educaiton. For every complaint listed here, there are certainly 10 parents who can offer positive feedback. My experience has been wonderful. Every school has its ups and downs, but I can certainly say that every teacher and staff member in this school has a heart for kids. They arrive early, stay late and work on Saturdays. Administration is available and return phone calls and emails immediately. Attend a meeting, come to an event, see the good in what is done instead of working to tear apart an institution that upholds student safety has a priority. Visit the school for a day. On May 28th the school is having a Teacher For A Day program, I encourage to walk a day in the shoes of a teacher and I am certain you will have a greater appreciation."

    "My child is in the fourth grade and started in the kindergarten. My child will no longer attend this school. My husband and I are very involved parents and this school just do not live up to what they say they are. Out of the five years my child was there two of the teachers were exceptional! However, they are no longer there. In order to talk to anyone at the school you have to make an appointment even if something serious happend to your child. The things my child learned at this school from other kids that included bad habits are ridiculous. I can control my child but not other kids or what they learn at home. It is not in a safe environment at all. The children do not go outside and play to blow off steam. The staff turns a deaf ear when something happens to a student but when addressed they say they care. NOOOOOOO they do not.........This school is terrible but I tried to give them a chance. Not anymore. The school has progressively worsened thru the years and I only see it getting worse. UC teams really needs to go back to the drawing board and start over."

    "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!!"
