University Place School District Reviews

5 reviews
All Categories
This district allows for social promotion. The administration does not have a formalized set of guidelines from which parents, teachers and students understand what qualifies as a passing grade. Standardized test results are not used to help determine proficiency for promotion and summer school is not mandatory for failing students. One only need look at the districts drop-out rate and reading/math proficiency scores to see the results of these policies. No districts in WA, including UPSD, are in the top 100 districts nationwide. Beware of the hype. Remember that everything is relative.

My experience at the University Place School District was excellent. The district strives to create an ideal environment for the students, and takes pride in the various enrichment programs that make well-rounded students. These programs include music, athletics, and community service. The only thing I would like to see improve is the food production, because I do not believe that the food is healthy; in fact, some foods look unrecognizable and rather unhealthy.
University of Arizona is the 10th best unversity in united state. Although it is old , it has strogly system and programs . There are many facilities for all students. I am studing master of architecture and our programs are complete .
