Union City High School Reviews

I moved to Union City starting my junior year. I wasn’t happy at my previous school, so I made the decision to transfer. Turns out, this was the best decision I’ve ever made. While at Union City, I have made true friends, acquired new skills/achievements with the extracurriculars I have joined, and have heightened my education more than I had hoped for. By utilizing skills that my teachers have taught me, I raised my ACT score by 2 points by only taking it once since being at the school. Along with the great education and great people, the motto(s) of the school are great for students to remember during their time at UC and during their time after high school. With the words “NO EXCUSES” and “EXCELLENCE” plastered on our walls, it reminds me to always do my best and never strive for less than excellent.

Over all, the school spirit exhibited at Union City High School in unbelievable! Almost everyone participates in extracurricular activities. The majority of the teachers do everything in their power to make students feel like they matter and push them to their potential. Some things I would change about my high school would be the strict dress code, and the school lunch menu could be spiced up a bit.
My school, Union City High School, is a playground of knowledge which fully submerges its students in culture, music, and overall diversity. With its outstanding administration and passionate educators, the Union City High School truly offers intense encouragement for success for all who attend. Changes are being introduced on a daily basis, improving and perfecting every single aspect of our prideful foundation.
