    Overall Experience: It's a great school with very nice facilities and many opportunities for students to learn what they want. Still, there are the outward appearance is a bit hyped up and can lead to disapponiment of one expects too much from the school.

    Overall Experience: My favorite experiences is some of the teachers are just all around awesome. They care and want you to do well in the class. I have great relationship with most of my teachers. What makes this school unique is that most of the student body truly thinks this school is the best in the nation. That is a common phase when administration and students are being interviewed. There is a lot of school spirit. Sometimes the school makes it obvious that they do put a lot of money in football and making our school look the best. Overall it is not a bad school.

    Overall Experience: Union High School, as a whole, is just like any other high school. Your education is what you make of it, not what the teachers make of it. The majority of the teachers at this school are passionate and really want the students to learn. The school pours money not only into the academic areas of the school, but also sports and arts as well. There are, however, a lot of things that go unnoticed. At one point I was in a class in which the teacher had me leaving campus running errands for him instead of actually being a regular student in the class. The spirit at Union is phenomenal - football games have four different spirit groups in the stands that help lead the cheers of the student body. Getting involved is easy, and finding a group of people that works with you can be easy if you know where to look. Once you're an upperclassman you can use one of your six hours of the day to work in one of the departments of the school instead of taking a class -- such as being a library aid or nurses aid. It's a great way to have some extra time in your day that isn't devoted to learning something you don't need. Remember, your education is what YOU make of it.
