I love UMS. It is unfortunate that some people who have had a less than positive experience at the school feel the need to voice their frustrations publicly. I suspect their children are part of the problem. My son and his friends have had a great experience for 2.5 years now. Nearly all of the teachers ...  Read more

We are so unhappy with this school. If at all possible don't move into this district with students older than elementary school age. Don't believe what the school board and administrators tell you about how much this school has improved. It deserves the poor reputation it has enjoyed with locals for ...  Read more
