The schools deliver a curriculum that fosters high expectations and emphasizes core academics. UCC provides a culturally responsive environment where parental involvement is one of the cornerstones of the educational program. The curriculum is designed to develop students who are prepared for college or career, while maintaining cultural pride through extracurricular programming and well-rounded school experiences.
When standardized test scores are released, UCC doesn't focus on comparative scores from other low-income and/or Hispanic schools or districts. We focus on other schools—public or private, urban or suburban— that are performing the best as a measuring tool for its own success.
