Open Quote The family atmosphere is a tribute to the requirement of parental volunteering. People who tend to complain about the "clique" environment are usually the ones who do not get involved to level that is expected of all parents of UA. Please note that the negative reviewer did not mention anything about the superior academics, nor the wonderful degree of attention the teachers pay to the students in an effort to tailor their approach to each individual. These teachers do not teach to test, they do so to educate.

If you can win a spot for your child through the lottery, then take full advantage of the opportunity to be a part of something special. No regular public school program will ever be able to offer that which UA does. I'm a fan, and so is my son.

Open Quote I couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewer. I am not wealthy and my children don't play sports, but my family is always welcomed, thanked and included any time we walk on either campus. The uniform and character policy are great. All the teachers my children have had were excellent and open to hearing my concerns. The family atmosphere is genuine, mainly because each family is asked to contribute 60 hours of volunteer time per school year. There is no better way to have a school of active, involved parents than to have such a volunteer policy. The year round school year is excellent, test scores are well above state averages, and the lottery admission process eliminates entry based on race or income. I could go on and on about how much my children, wife and I all LOVE this school! Close Quote

Open Quote This is a clique school. Great teachers get shunned. Lazy students, so long as they have rich parents or can play a sport, are encouraged to continue to be lazy. If you are not an "in crowd" person; whether it be parent, student, or staff member, stay away. While the outside looks great, the "family" atmosphere can turn around and stab you in the back.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
