Union Colony Preparatory is a wonderful school that provides tremendous opportunities. I am getting ready to graduate with my Associates of Science from a community college at the same time as my High School Diploma. This was only possible because of the support of the teachers, counselors, administration, and resources that were available to me there. Overall, Union Colony provides a quality education for students who are willing to put in the effort.

Union Colony Preparatory School prides itself on college preparation. As such, the school maintains rigorous, challenging courses and strict protocols. There is only one factor which has been underwhelming in the course of my studies, my class size. While I appreciate being close with all of my classmates, I would like to see more of my peers challenge themselves educationally. In short, I have had a thrilling high school experience, which I believe more students should engage themselves in.
The majority of teachers I have encountered during my seven years attending Union Colony have left a permanent mark on me. They are people I can always lean on. I have personal connections with them because I have known them for years because my siblings had their classes before me. They remembered me and took a liking. They always pushed me to do my best work and never expected or accepted anything less than what they knew I was capable of. I From the day I stepped foot into the school there was an open and warming environment set by the teachers. I have maintained and plan on maintaining my relationships with my teachers after I leave high school because of the impact they have made on me.
