Highly recommended. Strong academic rigor and great preparation for college, compared to other local private schools. Also, many extracurricular activities in both athletics and the arts. Faculty are well-trained and highly motivated.

UMS is a good school with many nice facilities and extra-curriculars, but academically speaking we've been a little disenchanted.

Excellent administration. I feel comfortable calling for any reason as small as a what time is show-and-tell in my son's class. I'm always treated with personal attention. Also, the students are so polite. Once my 2 year old was playing around older children and was accidentally knocked to the ground. ...  Read more
