Union Senior High School Reviews

Union High School is similar to any other high school, but our performing arts and sports status is one of the best in the state. Some of Union High School's staff are here to better you for college whilst others don't really want to help you at all. Union High School wants you to think that you are their top priority, however dress code impedes on your chances of a good education. At our local community college, Union County College, there is no dress code because their top priority is your education. Union High School staff wants the students to think that they are important, however behind closed doors students are being sent to I.S.S. or In School Suspension simply because of a small rip in their jeans "above the knee", shoulder exposure, midriff exposure or slides/sandals. Union High School is insensitive about is this dress code affects the females more than the males, considering men don't normally wear shirts that reveal their shoulders or shirts that expose their midriff.

Union High School is diverse and offers clubs of different interests. Their music program is exceptional and are led by amazing staff. As a student who joined the marching band who little experience in wind and percussion instruments, I was surprised by the welcoming environment for people of all levels of ability. I know people who had no experience at all joined and are now members of the band and learning mallet percussion from no prior knowledge. Spending grueling hours in the heat, cold, rain, and shine creates a family. And I am sure that this is true for all of our cheerleaders, twirlers, football teams, and many other sports and clubs as it was for me.
Union High School is a very diverse school which helps one learn to interact more with other types of people. The teachers are really amazing and care about how the students do. Also, there are several clubs and activities students can participate in, including free after and before school tutoring. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone!
