    "Bullying is definately problem, all our kids experienced bullying in one form or another. School officials pay no attention. Academic level is ver low. Drug control is minimal ans school officials prefer not to get involved. Overall it is shame to have such low standard middle school in great university tow."

    "If I could give UMS less than a 1, I would. They have a dress code straight out of the 60's where the primary objective is to save the boys from being "enticed" by the girls instead of making the boys responsible for controlling themselves. They do not enforces anti- bullying and are very soft on the bullies. Academic standards are low. Staff do not have any interests in helping a child with any special needs even if it is something as simple as a taller desk."

    "I'm currently attending 6th grade at UMS and at first it was decent but as the year went by, things started to plummet. I feel like the teachers TRY to punish the people who make bad choices but they don't really do much about it. Personally, I've had a good experience here: My grades were good,I have awesome friends and no one ever pushed me around. However, I've witnessed a few fights and that kind of concerns me about the safety and welfare of the students that attend UMS. Hopefully, all of this will be resolved but I highly doubt it will."

    "I have a son who just completed the 6th grade last year, and another son going into the 6th grade this year. I can honestly say, the teachers on the Stellar team are Stellar teachers! My oldest son has attention deficient issues and with much interest and involvement on my part, and that of his teachers, the teachers and I worked "closely" to keep my son on task. He was been on Honor Roll the entire school year. I would NOT want to take my kids out of UMS as they receive the academic support that I've come to expect and appreciate. Special kudos to Ms. Welch, Ms. Frye and Ms. Jackson. Teachers with tough expectations, but they work with students to meet these expectations. You're the greatest!!!"

    "We just moved here from a smaller district in the area, and we were very nervous about such a large school. Our son's seventh grade year just finished, and it was wonderful. We can't imagine being any place else at this point. UMS definitely deserves a better reputation."
