I went to Union Pines from 2009 to 2013. I enjoyed my time at this school. While I was there, I went to many school plays, sports games, educational meetings, and after school tutoring sessions. The staff there is absolutely amazing. They take their time with each student, whether or not he or she was on their attendance or not. Because I lived in Moore County my entire life, I had many advantages of knowing and being related to the staff as well. I learned how to include everyone, and be polite to everyone who crossed my path- even the bullies. I learned to have fun but keep my studies first. I grew as an individual and during the time I was there, I had support from my peers as well as the staff the entire way!

Union Pines High School is a very tight-knit and calming environment. The atmosphere is wonderful and the students are goal-oriented. However, there are problems with bullying and a small amount of discrimination that needs to be taken care of. The Marching Band program is excellent. Our athletic programs are one of the best in the county. Overall, Union Pines High School is an enjoyable place to learn.
Many of the teachers are less than acceptable or overachievers. Some teachers are looped into high school cliques and spend time with students away from their jobs while others, typically non core classes, expect that their massive and unnecessary amounts of work come before classes that are required to graduate. The administration needs to be run through a fine tooth comb because whether or not your child has a problem or not, they will quickly brush it under the rug.
