    University Lake School is a small school, and to me, this enhances the experience. Everybody knows everybody, and this creates an incredible family atmosphere. Students can receive help from teachers almost whenever, and teachers can provide catered help to each student. ULS is also academically demanding, and this sets ULS apart from many other schools. I believe that without the academic rigor and expectations set by University Lake School, I would not have been able to learn quickly and progress into higher learning. ULS brings out student's strengths and allows them to achieve their dreams, no matter what those may be.

    My 7th grade son was in a public school where it became uncool to be smart. His grades were dropping, he missed assignments, and had some experiences with bullying. At ULS he is in a small class where he gets more attention from teachers to help him with organization and staying on task. The other students are kind and care about their grades, so it is a good environment for him to excel. The school has a welcoming community and strong, hands-on approach to learning. It's been great for our son!
    ULS is academically rigorous and prepared our children for success at top liberal arts colleges and public universities. They considered their peers and teachers a part of their ULS family. That "team culture" encouraged my kids to take academic risks and try unfamiliar activities and sports. Overall, students are open-minded, respectful, and inclusive. Travel opportunities and exchange programs exposed them to diverse cultures; however, the beautiful, rural, natural environment limited accessibility to a more diverse student body. A shuttle service might make the school more accessible.
