Excellent school that gave my son a top notch education. Challenging courses fully prepared him for college without a hitch.

My children have both gone to this school and they really love it and so do I. The band program is the most awesome that there ever was and the academics have gotten better over the years and they are having the best season in football since 2004. They are challenged in everything they do.

I'm a substitute/student teacher and I think that UCHS is a great place for any child to come and feel like a part of great organization with wonderful instructors as well as extra curricular activities that are sure to keep your child's attention in and outside of the classroom.

I love the Union City school system. Being a former Obion County rebel I'm glad I chose to send my kids to the city school. I feel they are treated equal because of who they are and not by what their last name is. I feel the teachers are some of the best Tennessee has to offer. Keep up the good work and god bless you.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
