I love Urban. The community, especially the teachers, are so supportive and understanding. The classes are also incredible, taught at a great pace, but also flexible - to a point - based on the students' understanding and ability. I particularly enjoy the sports. I play basketball and have since freshman year. The team is a really great group of girls. The clubs are so diverse and unique because anyone can start a club with few requirements. In fact, this year a mahjong club was started by two sophomores. I really love Urban and couldn't picture being anywhere else, nor do I want to be.
Urban teachers and administration walk the talk they give at the Admissions Open Houses. My two kids have loved going to school each day, feel challenged academically, accepted socially, love their teachers for the most part, and have made lovely friends. The school encourages kids to be thoughtful, engaged citizens. My daughter felt very prepared for her Ivy League college. It has been a home run!
