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.

My experience at Union High School was average because most of the teachers didn't care for their job and us. Some did though which really helped me as a student and helped me realize there is good and bad out there. The students were all in their own homemade groups that they selected very carefully. Bullying in this school was never addressed even if one went to an adult about what was going on. They also only really cared for sports, if you weren't in a sport you didn't really get extra help because of the fact that there were more important people to attend to.
Going to Union High School, was one of the best years of my life! The teachers apply themselves which makes learning a lot easier. The Athletics at Union High School are stellar. Recently we were runner-ups in football and volleyball.
