My school is a small, sort of make you feel at home school. Mr. Carter the goes out of his way to personally make each child feel special. The teachers are the greatest, very concerned and committed to each child's success. I have 2 above average students, and I contribute that greatly to the contribution of their teachers. Thank you Union Heights!

If you have a child with special needs, do not enroll them in a Hamblen County school.....Worst school system that I have ever dealt with.
