This Union Township School District has provided me with great experiences and bolstered my understanding of the world around me. I have gotten the opportunity to interact with various people of all ages, races, and ethnic groups, due to the township's diversity. All the people I have encountered, including school faculty members, friends, and community members, have helped shape me into the person I am today. Education has become an integral part of my personality due to the schooling I received from teachers who supported me. These positive experiences are subjective, and likely due to the circumstances in which I grew up. This is not to say that the experience has been entirely perfect (namely poor administrative choices). But, like with everything in this world, you must take the good with the bad.

My experience at Union Senior High School is great. I have a strong reliable team of teachers and peers that help me stay on task and support me with my education and sporting needs. My counselor is my counselor and coach are my main support in my high school readiness for college. They are willing to go the extra mile to see me succeed and I am very appreciative of that. Something I would say that needs improvement is the level of acknowledgement and respect all the sports teams get, in particular the track and field team. We have one of the most competitive teams in the school that compete on a high level and dominates, but we are overlooked by the the administration. So if the sports administration would show more moral support within our program, we as a school would be more sufficient and equal as a economy.
I've been in the district from K to grade 12. Overall the system was great with some small exceptions. I enjoyed my school experiences. Most of the teachers were effective, made themselves available, and kept school interesting. The PTA did as much as they could with what they had in order to benefit all students. However, it would’ve been great if all parents got involved. I enjoyed playing sports, and did well. The coaches kept us competitive, but I felt that the district did not support all teams equally. Even though our volleyball team ranked highly, won most of our games, with better stats than some of the other teams, we had the same old uniforms from before I was a freshman. We never got new uniforms until we (the players) paid for our own uniforms in my senior year. For track, even when we qualified for the nationals, the school wasn't going to send us to compete. It somewhat discourages an athlete if you represent the school well and the school in turn does not support you.
