Western Union is more than a school. It is a family. The staff, from the Administration to the teachers, teacher assistants, secretaries, custodians, after school workers, and cafeteria workers -- everyone cares about every child. All children are treated equally and fairly. Truly one of the best schools in UCPS.
alot of bullying going on and over looked and always excuses and turned around on to the child getting bullied the staff thinks that the child should learn how to let things roll over them and not let things bother them and go and play with other kids
Western Union Elementary is a fantastic school ! It is small and quaint in the country but this is one of the many reasons we love this school! The teachers line the halls in the morning to greet the kids and they treat their students with respect and kindness. The PTO President is excellent. She brings the teachers and parents together to keep the lines of communication open. The students are the priority in western union and this shows with the commitment of the teachers! I was disappointed to see the lack of parent involvement in the school and PTO. I do not think this is a reflection of the school . In addition, the leadership of the school (principal) will benefit from listening to the teachers more and be more positive.
Western Union is a tremendous school. Our kids were there for several years and it has gone thru a lot of changes over the years. They have maintained a very 'family' feel to the school, we couldn't have asked for a better place for our kids, especially our son in the EC program. We felt like we were leaving family behind when it was time to move on!
This school is fantastic for my kids. The teacher care so much about the kids. They take a personal interest in each child and the EC program and teachers cannot be beat. I have 2 children currently in this school and have 1 that graduated to middle school. Do not worry about sending your children to this school, they will be well loved and learn everything they need to know.
