    I loved my experience at Union Catholic! It sis such welcoming and strong, supportive community, everyone is amazing. You make so many friends and the overall educational and high school experience really was worth it. I learned so much from my teachers and coaches that have helped me become the person I am today.

    Union Catholic is an okay school. Its not the best but it's not horrible. The English department is not very good, Spanish teachers are not great. the students keep to their groups if you are popular everything is great. Lots of gossip, back stabbing and playing favorites by the teachers. The counseling department is good. Lunch time is too short and long lines. The school tends to charge a lot for extras such as graduation. The school really needs to get air conditioning for all the class rooms. If you want to be on the swim team the practice is nothing and the head coach is really bad. The teachers are ok but some really need to retire and get some new blood into the school.
    The school is pretty clean but old, they try to keep on top of the latest technology, most assignments are done through the computer.
    My overall experience with Union Catholic so far is excellent. The education system is phenomenal! Diversity is very common at Union Catholic and everyone is accepted no matter what race, gender and ethnic background. I wouldn't change nothing in the school because everything is perfect here. You feel like yourself and that's one of the main keys of having an enjoyable high school experience.
