University Park is a very good school to send your child. It has been a while since I have attended there, but I know this community very well and I am certain that it hasn't changed too much. The childern are very nice on the whole and the teachers are exceptional. The education is fine but your child will also profit from some intangibles this school has. The location in very nice. Don't think this school is like other public schools--this is more like a private school.
