I love the school and the administration. Dean Williams has a great team. I feel like my children are part of a village where failure is not an option.

University High School Academy is the best school in the area by far. My son has always been smart and at the top of his class until he transferred to this school. His grades did drop a bit, but at least I know he is finally learning! The staff and teachers are wonderful and really care about the ...  Read more

The "U" is an awesome school, and my child is getting a great education. The teachers care and are very dedicated.

This school is terrible. The teachers are terrible & so are the students. The students aren't as smart as they seem. Most people can get in EASILY. I've never met anyone that hasn't got in. I know because I go there now! TRUST ME! Don't send your children there.

Although this school has only been open for 2 years, it has a really good learning environment. The staff is awesome and the Dean is the best.
