My daughter recently started a new school this year and we have found out she is behind in her math and reading. Last year she attended Union Cross Elementary and passed kindergarten with flying colors. We thought she was set up for success, but we found out otherwise. When I look back I am not surprised! One kindergarten teacher quit for personal reasons and the other was brand new. My daughter would come home daily talking about the tv shows she watched in school, when she should of been talking about what she learned. There was excessive homework for a kindergartner also, like a extra hours worth. Sometimes I felt like the teacher and when i asked my daughter if she did the same work in school she said NO!!! If feel like i was making up for teachers short comings. The Kindergarten program did not set my kid up for success and I am curious if anyone else has issues with 2013/14 kindergarten class. and to add to the mess My daughters new school still has not received her records after several requests and they spam email me constantly!!!

no positive comments to report. The only nice things thing I can say are: the one lady in the office was sweet....and Thank GOD that the year was finally over...and we are out of there. Im rating a "one" only because there is not a minus status to give. a family member.

I love Union Cross School because of the awsome, loving, caring people who work there. They are energetic and focused on what is important, the kids and one another as co-workers. They are unified and dedicated to doing what needs to be done for the children's needs for them to be successful at school and life.

I love Union Cross Elementary because the staff is very caring and concerned about each child's well being also their individual learning goals. The teachers at Union Cross focus on each child's weak areas as an individual but at the same time not separating them from the group. I just transferred my children to Union Cross this school year and I love it already.

I have four children there. All the teachers treat my children as indiviuals and they don't compair them to each other. All the teachers and staff there are very helpful and friendly. If there is a problem with one of the children I will be getting a phone call or a letter home advising me of what the problem is. They do not let and child slip behind and they give the children encouragement that they can do it and succed. -- Shawnie Poplin

Both my children go to Union Cross. Even though my daughter started off with a poor Kindergarten teacher. Then had problems at the begining of first grade the staff really helped her out so that she is now doing fine. My son is now in Kindergarten and has a WONDERFUL teacher. Union Cross has a great PTA, the best specialist teachers in the county if you ask my children. All of the office staff are very helpful. The Principal of this schools has been a heaven sent to me on days when I did not know what to do with my children. He has guided not only them but me also when things were tough. Next year when dell open things are going to be very tight in Union Cross we will recieve a pod that holds seven classes in it to help out. I think a new school is needed.

'Both my children have gone to Union Cross since they were 5 years old. Union Cross is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. He is a great example of a leader. Thank you Union Cross for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world!'
