    United Community School District Reviews

    1 review
    This school continues to fail. Administration has been dismissed/fired for the last 3 admins in less than 8 years. New principal they hired has only taught at United and she only has a temporary license to fill the gap. Teachers are underpaid and almost each year 3+ teachers leave from a small staff of less than 30 teachers preschool-6th. When I asked about curriculum for my child, they said that there was no official curriculum for science, reading and social studies. Overall I would say the school is only falling a part, not improving! I can't wait to have my child move on!
