Here is the reason we chose UMS: My son is such a fun and happy kid but junior high has been difficult for him. We chose UMS as a fresh start and we also loved the physical and outdoor aspects. We are hoping this switch will help our son return to the happy kid he was in elementary school and that he can find success in a new environment that fosters community.
We chose Utah Mountain School because we love the idea of non-traditional classrooms. Seeing the greenhouse classroom sold us completely! We had also been struggling with whether or not to keep our 7th grader at a charter school or go back to a public school setting, he was feeling really hesitant about changing schools until he saw UMS- he said it felt perfect for him! Who can argue with that!?
