I had 2 children attending uccs, one attended 5 years and the other attended 4 years. in the beginning I thought I had finally found an awesome school for my kids k-2 was great...Great communication, great expectations, and my kids loved it....once all the removing of teahers, removing of principals, and stretching staff too thinly across the board started to happen it went all the way down hill! Now the school is run and taught by staff that are truly afraid of the students.... when students go to the staff and ask for help because there are students using vulgar language, bullying, and threatening them (even when in front of their instructors) the bullied students are told to ignore it or leave the class for a little bit or move their chosen seat to another, or sometimes (speaking from experience) the bullied student is the one pulled into the office and threatened with expelsion or ats.....they would rather try to get the kids that they want to deal with to suck it up and deal with the bullying than punish the bullies or the staff that let this go on......DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILD in grades 3 and up in this school!!!! The BAD KIDS RUN THIS SCHOOL NOT THE ADULTS!

The teachers are great. Hardworking and excellent at communicating with parents. Leadership is lacking and constantly changing. Rules for students are not applied consistently from grade to grade or even class to class at the same grade level.

Staff is wonderful. The Leadership team is a hot mess. They have had 4 principals in the last 4 years. They are constantly having money issues. They don't even bother including or informing parents in any decision making. And there is a huge lack of trust between the staff and the leadership team. There are so many new charters in Rochester now - select another!

My last review was when my son was in Kindergarten. He is now in 3rd grade. I think at the elementary level this is a good school. I am continually impressed at the teachers' willingness to communicate with parents and their engagement with each individual student. When I compare UCCS to the stories of my friends with kids in the outstanding suburban school district, UCCS ranks higher in regard to parent communication and engagement. I do think the kids learn something and I think the teachers have worked very hard in successfully integrating the new Common Core curriculum. My son needs a lot of structure to succeed and behave and he gets that at UCCS. I am not sure whether the middle school has the same qualities as the elementary. I will investigate this further as we get to that time.
