Union Elementary is a great place to learn. It provides a safe learning environment for all students and staff. This school is great!

This school doesn't care about all children that attend. They like to accept your child but kick them out everyday because they are "under staffed" that day. guess they want the funding money that comes with your child's enrollment just not the responsibility to actually teach children. very disappointing school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science and writing. The OCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oklahoma. The goal is for all students to score at or above the satisfactory level on the test.
