This is a great high school. I am involved in band, marching band, jazz band, Future Business Leaders of America, and more. Union is very involved in its students' lives and dedicate their programs to help students thrive and achieve great things. There is a great support system found in its hallways.
Union High School is a very judgmental school. The football program is like a cult. They judge everyone and label kids and if you mess up your labeled even though most kids are just better at faking "good character" then others. It's a joke! Most teachers are good here but a few don't try to connect to the students or if it takes a little more effort to reach them they are labeled. The ad never smiles and is always looking for something to prove. All in all its a smoke and mirror school.
