Union Township School District (Union) Reviews

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.

I liked it very much. I liked the space, the organization, the workers and professors. I remember that a very kind lady helped me to fill out the immunization form and other one helped in the enrollment (I was new so I didn’t know how it works).

I liked the classrooms and best part is that I could walk from home to school and viceversa.

Wonderful!
As a student, I love how Union High School is run. In this case, I feel it is very orderly and prepares our kids for colleges, especially the guidance counselors. My guidance counselor has helped me immensely throughout my college process. However, I do feel that some teachers do not worry about their students and the path that they want to go down in the future.
