Everyone wishes and hopes to have the best experience in school because this is where your life begins. I have been attending UME for the past Eight years and have had an extremely positive school experience. The teachers care about the wellbeing of their students and the kind of environment they are in. The majority of the students strive to be the best they can be to achieve high academic goals. UME has kept it’s culture and continues to in the midst of increasing student enrollment. Whenever a new student comes to the school, they always say how UME is unlike any other school because of our culture. UME is very trustable and works hard to keep it as safe as possible. The homework load is nothing unreasonable. At times it can seem overwhelming but that can go for any school. I am very thankful and blessed for the opportunity of being able to attend UME and could not have asked for a better school environment with great academics, students, teachers, and administration. I’m

I have gone to UME for 7 semesters of high school. I love UME. The school community is very strong, and everyone knows each other. Students and staff alike are very friendly. One downfall is the lack of variety when it comes to available classes. They have a good athletics program, but their music department does lack some because it's such a small school. There is no band or orchestra, but only a choir class that is not very active. The theater department is strong, but doesn't have a lot of funding. We have pretty good teachers all around. Overall, I would recommend UME to anyone looking for a small, tight-knit community with a good foundation for college. I am a senior, graduating in a couple of months, and I will be graduating with 27 college credits under my belt. Great school!
It a very good School, very respectful teachers and students. I've been going here every since it started in 2013. I think it needs to be more biracial, and many stable teachers. I have friends who graduated from other schools who will talk about their old teachers to people who go to the same school they went to. Many times they talk about their old teachers and how they acted then and the enrolled student student can relate. “Mrs. Regina is still the 7th grade English teacher! I can’t believe you had her 13 years ago when you were in 7th grade!” I’d like teachers to feel comfortable enough to stay more years, so they can see their former students graduate, showing how proud they are.
