In addition to our mission statement, our focus is also on developing positive character traits in our students.
The child I have in this school is a 'special'. He is PDD and ADHD, so any teacher that has him has his/her hands full. I have been very impressed with the abilities of the teachers he has had. We've had a few issues, but overall, it has been a good three years.
My daughter has attended Union for almost 4 years. I am so pleased with this school. The rate at which she has learned to read has been wonderful. They use a program with reading that lets the children read at their own pace so she has been able to excel wonderfully and not become bored. The teachers at Union expect a lot from their students, which keeps the children trying hard and not slacking off. They also expect their students to behave, which helps the children become more disciplined. My daughter participates in Art and Music during school. She absolutely loves those programs and I am so thankful they have been able to keep them. I would recommend this school to anyone. My daughter has had a wonderful beginning to her school experience and I have Mr. Petit and all the teachers at Union (and I can't forget Mrs. Brockleman, the secretary.)
