I don't have much experience with elementary schools since this is my first child enrolling in the kindergarten center but I will say that this school is not very accommodating to that fact. Everything that I learned about the school was found on their website or in a letter from them at the last minute.
... Read more I was sent a letter early on in the year about enrolling my son for extended care but I was told that you needed to know which session he was in to enroll him in there. When I call to find out what session he is in, I am told my a rude staff member that I will receive a letter that will explain all of that and the bus schedules in August when school starts in September. When I get the letter for the bus schedule, it just has the times for his kindergarten center session so I call to ask about registering for the daycare program. I am told that people were registering since March and that if I register him now he still wouldn't start until about two weeks later after school began. Even the school supplies and uniform information had to be found online because I received nothing from the school. This school is just highly unorganized and I wish there was another option for my child. Read less

I love the K-Center. My son was having trouble and they were calm with him and helped him along the process. This year they are having more back to school nights so we can have a better understanding of what our children are doing on a daliy basis. I have constant communication with my sons teacher.

My son started the kindergarten center and I'm about to take him out asap!!! I cant personally interact with his teachers b/c of the "drop off" and pick up" Practices. I have to communicate with the teachers via a yellow folder that my son brings home everyday! On top of that he only learns for 3hrs
... Read more in the day b/c its a half day kindergarten! My sons daycare facility taught him better and all day so kindergarten for him has been a break. I expected a more structured enviroment and lesson plan. Oh but lastly the school happily accomodates the fact that both my husband and I are full time employees by having a daycare that runs me over $300 to watch my child from 740-1230(before his kindergarten begins) Its an obvious $ making operation all the while depriving my child of a REAL education.

My daughter just finished up her Kindergarten year in June. I speak for both of us when I say that we will truly miss the UDKC. Like other reviewers have said, Kindergarten in one building is ideal! My daughter had Mrs. McGonigle and she is nothing short of wonderful! They will be tough shoes to

I entered my son into this school heavily based on the feedback I received from this site. If I had known that I should have requested a specific teacher, I'm sure I would have not been dissappointed. I was extremely dissappointed in my son's teacher. This young teacher spent most of his time disciplining

It's unfortunate, but this teacher needs lessons on practicing patience with children. He should be mentored by the more experience teachers that are mentioned in the feedback. I couldn't wait til this school year was over! Read less

My daughter goes to the kindergarten center and she absolutely loves it. Most of all she really likes her teacher. I think having just kindergarten in one building was an excellent idea and makes it so much easier for the children to adapt. I wish she could stay there but they do grow up. Now she have
