This is the second year that my daughter has attended UGMS. She is a good student (A/B Honor roll) but I feel the curriculum is definitely geared toward the standardized testing.

I can not say enough good things about this school. Both of my children went through and were challanged academically.

My kids were in private school since they were 3 years old and started UGMG last year (7th grade). I am very happy with the curriculum and the elective course they offer. I feel my kids are challenged academically.
