This school is outstanding. I'm an eighth grader here and the teachers always do their best to help us students succeed. They always make it fun, too. For the last two years, we've done a Lip-sync singing competition. We had to bring in money to vote for our favorite performer. The first year, we raised money for Haiti. The second year, we raised money for cancer. Overall, Union is amazing.

Union is the best school ever! I am currently a seventh grader in the middle school and am extremely satisfied by the school. All of the teachers are great too!! This school is awesome and I can only say that because before I came to Union my brother and me went to Benton. So far I have liked Union so much more than Benton!! The extra curricular activities are the best around also. :)
