The school does a great job of making sure that you are comfortable and feel safe while there. The teachers do a terrific job of reaching out to they students and making sure they get the help that they need. there is a diverse set of courses available for you to take, so there is really something for everyone! Outside of academics, the school is talented in sports and fine arts activities and there is a lot of pride in those areas. There are fun events that everyone enjoys going to and the school does a great job of really making the student body feel like one big family.

All in all, I wouldn't have wanted to go to high school anywhere else in the country. As a district, Union strives for excellence and motivates its students to do the same. Union is an amazing community to be a part of, and I'm glad I was able to walk the halls of such an outstanding school. Redskins for Life!

I love attending Union. There are the usual problems with trouble students and a lack of funding for the arts, but you'll see that at most other schools. One thing I don't much care for is the huge and important football culture. Some attention is given to other sports and activities but it's mostly football. Nevertheless, there are plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy. There's a number of courses to choose from, including online and concurrent classes, and even internships offered at local businesses for credits! It's a great school, and the only problems are the ones we make for ourselves
