Unity Point Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
We recently moved to the area and my two children started at Unity Point last month. It has been a total adjustment for them, but in the best possible way. While they are apparently pretty far behind the kids who have been here a while, particularly in math, the teachers are wonderful with communication and are very, very good about holding the students accountable while maintaining a fair and friendly atmosphere. Their progress in a short time in terms of not just school subjects but responsibility and maturity in general is astounding. What a difference! We'll have some catching up to do over the summer, but it will be worth it.
GREAT school. So glad we moved to the best school district around. The principal left to further her education and we'll miss her but they have a great superintendent and acting principal. the ladies in the office are great. the school is organized. the education is fabulous. your children are lucky if they go to this school, it would stand up against any large area school in any state. your kids will be well-prepared for highschool and beyond
I attended Unity Point School K-8, and received a fantastic education. I never felt lost in the shuffle of other students. The teachers were strict, yet fair. The school did well incorporating fun into a learning environment. I have recently graduated college and started a career, and basically all of my achievements, I can attribute to the education from UPS!
we have been at UP for three years and loved the school until this year...a first grade teacher resigned two days before school and theschool board elected to notreplace this teacher even though they had the funding -- this resulted in class room sizes of 30 (yes THIRTY) for each first grade class. The school board then ignored the concerns of both teachers and parents at school board meetings and declined to hire another teacher even though the had the funds stating "our teachers are veterans, they can handle it." Makes me wish I hadn't worked so hard to stay in the school district and with this kind of attitude I expect that my kids will be moving to a new school...a 1:30 ratio for teacher to student is RIDICULOUS.
I am a parent of children who have attended Unity Point for the last 12 years. During that time they have had the best, most compassionate teachers to learn from. These teachers are very dedicated and knowledgeable, putting in long hours to keep up on technology training so that the students could have the use of computers and tablets from grants to help them. Administrators from the last several years have been a source of tension in the school but the historic Unity Point pride has prevailed and the staff continues to offer the large school activities in a small school atmosphere where every child is valued.
