    My son transferred to this school because of its great AP classes(6th grade). He has excelled in UIL (placed 1st in math time and time again) and is very excited about coming back in 2010-2011. Mr. Ortiz and Ms. Mitzui are the best at math and the one person who has motivated him the most academically is his science teacher named Mr. Juarez. If there are any doubts about the faculty and staff at USMS just call Principal Santos and she will clear any doubts you might have. Thank you for your dedication to your students.
