I really do love Union County Public Schools. The teachers and other members of the administration care about the well-being of the students, such as their grades and relationships with people. The Early College counselors work to give as much information about college opportunities to their students. There is a lot of motivation, ambition, love, and education in this district!

My experience with Union County Public Schools has been a fantastic one since starting school. I have met new people with a variety of backgrounds and I have learned how to treat one another with respect, as well as gain a great education that not everyone is able to receive. I love my school and my county and I am extremely grateful to have had the experience that I have had in this school system!
I enjoyed going to Porter Ridge High School. I graduated valedictorian in 2017. I also played varsity softball for four years and won several awards through that. However, as a student athelete, I would like to see more of a push on academics. I loved playing sports but oftentimes I found my school work being pushed off for sports. I wish there was a push for atheletes doing better in school as well as everyone else doing better in their classes. There isn't a push for students to go to college unless they were high achieving students. Other students aren't given the opportunity to even consider college and are shut down if they want to consider that route.
