This school is phenomenal. My child started 2 years ago and just finished her first year of middle school. Not only does Unity offer robust academics, but it provides just about every program that the choice schools offer....from fine art, to music, video production, theater, an amazing sports program,
... Read more computers, Spanish and speech and debate. The students get to experience it ALL. The leadership is very strong and couldn't be more fair. We hardly donated (we really only gave a token amount that we could afford) and our child is treated with the utmost respect. Every teacher is kind and respectful. The children are happy, full of life, and treat each other much better than I've seen at other schools. Unity has a "Lessons in Living" program that is comparable to none other, teaching empathy and the value of community. If you want a school that has it all, Unity is the one. Read less

Elementary is OK. Middle school is very weak, curriculum and methods of teaching are behind the times. Claim to have ipads for every student in middle, but the teachers don't use them in class, no books are available on them, big PR stunt.... Some middle school teachers are just plain mean. Overall school
... Read more leadership is very, very weak, totally focused on money and getting donations, any parent giving in addition to the $16K+ per year, is idolized, their kids are given preferential treatment. No understanding of difference between boys and girls in terms of energy levels, boys are expected to behave like girls. Plenty of money in the school but they seem to scrip on every item, one wonders where the money goes from the constant fund raising. Read less

Unity School is completely biased to the children who's parents have donated the most money. All teachers will treat kids differently if they know the child is popular with parents and other students. If you donate money to the school, you will not be punished WHAT-SO-EVER. I have been at Unity School

Our experience at Unity has been an exceptional one.

Unity School has changed. The text books are out dated. The school is extremely clicky and if the parent or the child does not make the cut into the click then the rest of the year will be very difficult. The school is run by the parents not the administration. They have lost site about what is important
... Read more for your child. Everything about Unity is how much money you will give to the school. HOW YOUR CHILD IS TREATED DEPENDS ON THE PARENT'S FINANCIAL DONATIONS TO THE SCHOOL. Unity school has a big problem with Bully situations of which they address only after the situation has gotten so bad...your child does not want to go to school. Unity does not have the proper guidelines and procedures set in place. When a parent pays $16,0000 + dollars for their child to go to school, they expect a sence of excellence. You will not find it at this private school. Read less

We started Unity at the pre-K level for the Montessori teaching and unique family environment. Our son is now in 1st grade and is excelling beyond our belief in all aspects of academics, participating in violin, chess, arts, sports, and reading at a 3rd grade level. The lessons in living programs places

The school has Green qualifications, a healthy food policy and a tree-to-table program complete with on-site gardening to educate the children on a full range of nutrition. Above all, the warmth and exceptional display of parental involvement says it all, and is what makes this school so special. There is a sponsor family in place for every new family, as well as an ambassador child for every new student. We are quite fortunate to be a part of Unity School and the culture it creates and reinforces for our child and for our family. Read less
