- Teacher for 8th Grade Science - UAS is overall a decent school.. what are the cons you may ask? Well its VERY depressing in the halls unlike other public and private schools. Also Its very disorganized. Teachers from my prospective are rude, so as many other employees here. And there was this one staff member that I ABSOLUTELY HATED. She screamed for no reason complains about student behavior even though she's in the wrong most of the time. She pulls people by the shirt and.. I cant mention more information I will not be saying her name due to respect. Thank you for reading this review.

The schools education is excellent. It truly prepares your kids for college and simplifies the first couple of years for your kids.
