The staff is incredible! They are knowledgeable and compassionate. They are eager to work with me during my difficult circumstances and have helped my child tremendously! My son LOVES school!!! UCES is very welcoming to parents and works to include families in school activities. This is the best school we've been in, and we are lucky to have this quality of education in such a small town.
