University is an incredible school! Our daughter has attended since kindergarten and we are constantly impressed by the professionalism by teachers and staff.

Unfortunately, I am not impressed with this school. Having come from out of state and this being a small town in the Midwest, we had high hopes for a more open minded and genuine teaching staff, because of the diversity that comes with being so close to the university. Our child came in surpassing ...  Read more

I am sadly disappointed in UES. Our son has attended since K, now grade 3, and we are trying to get a transfer. If you don't mind the NO TALKING rule in the cafeteria (yes, the little kids actually have to READ the WHOLE time, no socialization, just robots) then you're nuts. Worse still was the lack ...  Read more
