Absolutely loved our time at UES. We miss the North Hanover School District terribly. Unfortunately, we had to move out of state.
Our military family moved to the area with a 5th and 6th grader that had been homeschooled until the move. They both transitioned beautifully into the school with tremendous support from the principal, faculty and the teachers. The school is absolutely gorgeous with so many activities for the students to choose from, ranging from band and chorus to a wonderful drama club. The teachers and staff are friendly and truly care about the children and their success in academics as well as in life. My children participated in several of these activities and loved every minute. Whether your child is "on-level" , gifted & talented or may need additional help, this school will meet them and help them excel. Mr. Alvarez, the principal, is one of the kids greatest supporters and it is evident he loves his job, the school and all who comes in the door. It is obvious the students respect and like him. If given the choice and chance again there would be no questions to attend this school and encourage my children to take full advantage of all they have to offer. Great school and so happy we chose it!
We are a military family formerly stationed at JBMDL. We utilized “school choice” and chose North Hanover Township Schools. We loved Upper Elementary School. The principal, Mr. Alvarez, is a caring and energetic leader. He is committed to creating a safe, vibrant environment. He is also supportive of the military; understanding military-specific hardships. Our son attended UES for two years. The “pull-out” Gifted & Talented experiences were engaging allowing for creativity and higher level problem solving. The school also offered G&T Band and G&T Art programs. The Spring Musicals are amazing! Our son participated in both Beauty and the Beast and Shrek Jr: The Musical. The casts were large and were inclusive of special needs students. The staff involved give hundreds of hours coaching performances, teaching dance steps, inspiring the actors and patiently remembering they are pre-teens. The UES auditorium is a beautiful, comfortable setting. For that matter, the entire school is gorgeous. Additionally, our son learned to read and play music taking part in twice-yearly band performances as well as small group ensembles during the band concerts and the Open Houses. The art program at UES is amazing! The children are exposed to and work with many different mediums and styles. Academically, our son was challenged and scored very well on both the English/Language Arts and Math PARCC tests. And last but not least, the school nurse is wonderful. We have since moved and found our son is more than prepared to succeed in Junior High. We loved UES.
Good solid academic offerings. Lots of services for struggling learners. Lacks structured enrichment programs for high achieving students. Individual classroom teachers are left to challenge students who are above grade level; some teachers do this very well, especially 6th grade teacher Mrs. Planterich!
