I think the UCW is a wonderful school, my daughter is a 2018 grad! They were very helpful to her and I know she will be successful in her future.
My four years experience at this charter school was challenging . During this period of my academic years, I received outstanding support from every angle of all subjects. I did like having a counselor and an adviser through out my four year term. My opinion on improvement in the charter schools would be to include music and art to academics courses. I felt some what incomplete during my high school years. There was no option or offer of selecting one or both as a class. Now I've decided to major in photography at Columbia College. I feel this would be my opportunity to embrace music and art as a courses during my college years. . I would like to end this closing with a positive vibe. This credit is due to my junior and senior adviser, principal and office staff. They were my mentors after my parents of course. I am grateful to them for being involved with my education. I could not have completed this task without them.
