I loved my experience in the Union County District. I use to go to Central Academy of Technology and Arts from freshman to sophomore year (2017-2019). Personally, I wouldn't change a thing. The only reason that I left is because I had a change in my career choice and I found CPCC's Dual Enrolled program to benefit me more. I would recommend any Union Country School to anyone!

Excellent schools. Love Marvin Ridge High School. Feel very blessed to have three children in this school. Two are already in college, very well prepared and got into every school they applied to . Excellent academic and social experience in school. Challenged academically but also had many amazing memories and friendships built. Love the IB program and this entire community!
I have been in the Union County Public school district since I was in middle school. I have never had a problem with teachers or administration. I have always had resources to help me succeed, I have gotten involved in my community thanks to my school. I have always felt safe at school, which is very important to me. I have never felt excluded. I love my school and I will miss it when I go to college next year!
