The Urban School is the most wonderful, constructive, supportive environment I've ever found. The community is open-minded and the students work hard, diving into academics as well as clubs, sports, and art. There are so many opportunities for growth. I love it here, I'm so grateful for my time at Urban!

Beautiful campus, beautiful students. Great student body if you can figure out how to navigate the social scene, which can be a bit cutthroat at times. Clear social hierarchy, but lots of really cool people. Truly wonderful and supportive teachers/staff for the most part. However, academics are extremely challenging for those with a learning difference and for kids who didn't attend a prestigious private middle school. What's more, the top-level academic administration can be borderline cruel. Their academic standards are ridiculously high and kids who aren't able to meet those standards receive more punishment than support.
The academics are rigorous, challenging and fair. The students are engaged in the work and the collaboration with teachers is amazing. Wonderful educational place!
