    I have a First Grader who moved here from Evergreen Colorado. The school the teachers and the parents are completely involved and forward thinking preparing the 1st graders on a social intellectual and pariticiipatory level. I am amazed how well they are doing in Mathematics English spelling and reading Science and PE. Thank You!

    Teachers and parental involvement make UP an exceptional elementary school. We have been there for 4 years and we are very happy with the education our child is receiving.

    Great teachers great parental involvement. Good students. Math program is not preparing kids for middle school; principal is not a good leader.

    Great teachers and parental involvement. The principal leaves much to be desired. That is the weak link.

    We have attended U.P. Elementary for 4 years and have found it to be a wonderful and enriching place of learning. The TAG program is superior as well as extracurricular activities.( destination imagination chess yearbook etc.)Parent involvement is extremely high as well and there is a welcome attitude towards parents.
