Good school but has TERRIBLE head lice policy's and doesn't preform good head checks to insure that other children are safe from infestation. Very upset with the way they handle this situation!!

I think that New Union is a great school for my children. It would be great if your children would be able to go to this school. *Thanks*

This school is fantastic. My daughter has been going there for three years and my other daughter starts this year. We are wanting to build a house but we are trying to find land near their so that they will be able to attend school there. We like it so much and we don't want to leave that school.

I think New Union is the best school in the area. Both of my children have been through this school and loved it. They both felt secure and nutured there.

I have to say..I think New Union is the best school in the coffee county schools district. The teachers and principal really care about the kids. It is a very open and warm school with a lot of parent involvement. I always feel welcome and I know my daughter has flourished since she has been there. I am amazed how all the teachers and principle already know my child by name and greet her everyday (she has only been there a year). A big thanks to the principal, all the teachers, parents, volunteers, and everyone else that works at the school as you have really made my daughter feel welcome. She loves to go to school everyday!

This is my first year for my child to be in school, so this is my first experience. So far I am really dissapointed with the lack of information. Everytime there is an activity, party or anythign going on at school there is no information about it sent home with the kids. Just a paper saying the date and what it is. I am treated like I should just know. So far the staff seems very nice and they really care about the kids, but I think the class sizes are too big and they just can not pay the attention to each child they need to. Hopefully as the year goes on I will see some changes. Being that this is my first year dealing with a school I may be just expecting to much.

New union has been excellent with 2 of my children. They are above average in most every subject. The teachers actually do teach and have been great about fiving one on one attention to the children that may need only a few minutes to get something they don't understand. I think it's the best schoo in coffee co. THEY ARE ABOVE AVERAGE IN ALL SUBJECTS AND THE TEACHERS ARE TOP NOTCH,REALLY CONCERNED WITH THE CHILDREN LEARNING
