From Our Community

UPrep has exceeded our expectations. The faculty and staff all know my children and family. The amount of teachers who care about our children's success has been overwhelming. From becoming new members of the community and feeling right at home from the start, to now looking for colleges with a high schooler, our family has utilized every aspect of the school's expertise, compassion, and experience to take our children to the next stage in their lives.” Current UPrep parent
The word include describes the essence of the community that is UPrep. It is a place where you are known and people are interested in helping you grow. That sense of inclusion makes it a powerful place to be and learn. Director of Middle School Susie Wu
