5/18/2011parentUrban day has engaged in systemic transformation changes under the leadership of their new principal, Ms. H-W. She has a "no nonsense" disposition and is adamant about ensuring that the students are prepared for college and beyond, not high school. The classrooms are identified by the year students will graduate from a 4 year university, the names of an institute of higher education as well as the college mascot. Teachers are held accountable for student learning by using data from the quarterly exams to make decisions about what they are teeaching. The students respect Ms. H-W and know that she will not tolerate misbehavior. Some families are upset becasue their children who chronically disrupted teaching have been expelled so that teachers can teach and students can learn. This principal is always out of her office visiting classrooms and making sure teachers are doing their jobs. Last year half the teachers were fired and Ms. H-W chose a new staff. Her goal is to make Urban day a high performing school. She is a New Leader for New Schools fellow and will not sto until Urban Day is a 90/90/90 school. You may not like her but you have to respect her and what she is doing
4/23/2011parentThe school leadership is disgraceful. They truly do not care about the students. It sickens me to have family friends who have attended this school.
3/16/2011otherMy first grandchild entered this school 5 years ago. Currently I have three grandchildren enrolled here. I must say the staff teachers and administrators have been outstanding! I have worked with teachers who are genuinely there teaching because they love TEACHING! Some I even feel deserved to be acknowleged Nationally because of their dedication. If someone can direct me on how to nominate them please do let me know. Urban Day keep up the good work! If there was more schools like Urban Day, less children would be left behind.
11/18/2009otherAs a alumni student of class of 2007, I think urban day has perpared me a lot for the future. The have many selective activites from basketball to African dancing, and the teachers there are outstanding.
