Our son is just starting his Sophomore year. After going to 13 -yes 13- different high schools myself, I must say, Union Mine is an absolute joy! They are extremely student focused. The block schedule is amazing. Special "D-back" days allow kids to either make up missed work or enjoy extra-curricular activities during school time. The administrative staff is helpful. My son LOVES 11 out of 12 teachers he's had (the 12th was only "alright") so far. Lots of AP classes. Opportunity to graduate early. Beautiful campus design and landscape. Tons of extra-curriculars to choose from- not just sports. Weekly emails from principal keep you well-informed. Aeries access to grades/attendance. Staff is on top of dress code control and there is a zero tolerance for bullying. Enormous parking lots. Two gymnasiums. Modern electronic marque. What else can I say?

Union Mine is a clean, safe school. Everyone is accepting of everyone and it is located in a small country town. Its very new and the staff is great with interacting and teaching. Our sports programs have grown tremendously and our band program, which i am in, has grown and become one of the better ones in the area. Some students, having grown up in such a small town and going to school with the same people since kindergarten, seem to be farely sheltered which can be a problem because going out to college will be a different experience. I grew up in more of a city, then moved here, and it's definately a different Lifestyle. Overall, Union Mine is a clean school with great ratings, but we are ust starting to get the hang of everything, being as we are new.

Great school in general. It's clean, has an amazing staff and environment. Even though ther is a lack of divercity there is a great amount of acceptance. They have a great music program and I am looking forward to finishing my years there and moving on to a great college.

The school in general is great because its so new, its clean. Staff is ecvellent, teachers are very helpfull. The only problem is the students. They are very sheltered. Some students are disrespectful to other students. Bullying. City schools with more culture and divercity students are more respectful to one another like the real world and if you respect someone they will respect you. This school the students like to start drama for no reason. Fake blonde exc. I would take a city school any day over a country stuck up school.

My eldest daughter graduated from UM in 05; she graduates from a UC school in June 09 with a degree in Neuro-biology and is going to medical school. Her younger brother also excelled at UM in both academics and in sports all four years. He graduates from UM in 09; he was accepted at at 4 UC's and wants to also obtain a professional degree. Union Mine is safe, is responsive to parents and has a beautiful, well maintained campus. We came to UM in 2001 and in the 8 yrs, UM has sent our daughter and son to awesome UC university's. You run a great school principls Mr. Fickle and Mr. DeVille. GO UM!

Good, clean, neat, polite and well maintained school. Good sports program and seems like a healthy attitude.


Posted August 27, 2008

Clean, energetic environment! Lots of resources and involved teachers. Unfortunately, foreign lagnuage selection has decreased due to funding. Love the Block Scheduling - for BOTH my 'academic' focused student and my not so 'academic' student. Great Career Center

This is an excellent school in all regards. My son is a good student, and I was worried that he would 'burn out' as some good students do, in a hard-driving 'highly competitive' school. However, at Union Mine he is receiving an excellent education in all areas, is not 'stressed out', is having a good time, is participating in a superb athletic program, and is preparing to apply to highly competitive universities. My only criticism: no orchestra program, no string ensemble - but this part of California seems only to have school bands - marching bands, concert bands, jazz bands, little or nothing in high school for classical music (with some rare exceptions) - too bad. My son studied violin for many years but now has no orchestra or group to play with.

My daughter transferred to Union Mine froma private school. We were concerned about the transition and her reaction to a the culture. It has been fantastic. She is having a great time, her grades are excellent and her teachers are both supprtive and tough. She gets mad at me if I am late getting out the door because she wants to get to school early. This is a great school with a great culture, good kids, and excellent staff.

My son graduated from Union Mine in 2005. I am so very grateful that he attended this school. The faculty was incredible. They cared about the students and their education to the extreme. The campus is beautiful. Everything was up to date and current as far as textbooks and equipment making teaching and learning the top of the line. He excelled at this school. Everyone involved in his education I truly felt honestly cared about him. The principal, teachers, office staff, counselors, special ed staff, even the maintenance folks. I am so proud that my son attended Union Mine.

I have been to four high schools due to my parents moving. I went to Folsom, Sacramento, San Juan, and UM. UM has friendly staff and teachers. UM is in El Dorado/Placerville. Most of the students at UM act differently than students from the city. UM is primarily white, I would say 95% white. Most students are sheltered @ UM. The students do not get into many fights, deal with drugs, or skip school like my other schools. UM is strict on sttendance. The music department is great. UM provides many AP classes and advance classes. Since UM is in Placeville, the school is very much isolated. There are not many places where students can go near UM for fun. The closest fast food is near the freeway, 5-6 min drive. W/b Thank you

I think the school is awesome! (Except for the atletic director, he just wants all the money for the football team) but other than sports problems, it's great.

I believe that the school has a lot to offer. I feel that they have a wonderful academic program, and they offer a fairly good amount of extracurricular activities, like dance, cheerleading, football, and ect. I do feel ,however, that the parents should get involved a little more, unless they've changed that since I was last there.

Academic programs are great. However, they could include maybe one or two more foreign language classes. Maybe Japenese? UMHS music, drama and art programs are AWESOME! Probably the best in the County. Parent involvement seems to be quite good.

We are pleased with the maintenance and upkeep of the school property. Enforcement of dress, and conduct code. We also like their quarter system of education which focuses on four classes per day for two quarters and switches after te new year. This gives students to spend more time on subject matter.

I have had two students graduate from Union Mine and my youngest will be a sophomore next school year. They have all enjoyed their experiences at Union Mine but have mixed feeings about the four by four schedule. They have found that completing the coursework, especially in AP and other advanced subjects such as physics, is a 'rush' and that some of the course work is not covered thoroughly enough. Also, if you take a foreign language there could be an 8th month gap until you take the language up again due to the 4x4 schedule. I had my kids take Spanish 1, 2 and 3 continuously (they were finished by their sophmore year) so they wouldn't lose their feel for the language but that isn't for everybody. Band also suffers as many students chose to opt out of band after a year or two in order to take other electives.

My daughters are seniors attending UMHS and had some troubles their first two years. Now they have learned to like the school and loved most of their teachers. One of my daughters is a cheerleader and enjoys being a part of the school's spirit. The block schedule is great because the year goes by quicker and homework is completed more easily than a regular schedule would.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
