We pulled our children out of a private, Catholic school in Racine and school choiced to Union Grove. We couldn't be happier! The academics at this school surpassed the private school we were at. The Principal, and Assistant Principal, and support staff are wonderful! The teachers go above and beyond to treat each kid as an individual. My kids are so excited to go to school every day now!

We moved to this community so my son could attend this school and have been nothing but pleased! This was our third year and the teacher's he has had have been great! If there are any issues they take care of them right away. I have also been involved with the PTO and again they do a lot for the kids and the staff. I would recommend this school to anyone new to the area!!!

Horrible and discriminatory! Worst possible treatment of kids. Need an IEP, or 504, won't get one here! The administration is the worst I have seen in any state. I cannot stress enough, this place is HORRID!

I LOVE this school! We did the lottery to get my daughter in at this school and her name was selected. We have been nothing but thrilled with the school. teachers, and PTO! I drive 53 miles each day to get her here and back, and it has been so worth it! The teachers are so caring, and go the extra mile to resolve any issues. The school is clean and new and offers so much! The PTO is wonderful and has with the help of so many involved parents raised so much money for all the "extras" for the school! I LOVE it! This is a very "old school" kind of school, where the "big" problems are gum chewing in class, not like what you hear about on tv (guns etc). My daughter has done so well in her studies, and in 1st grade was reading chapter books! I can't say enough great things!

School attendance policies are very overbearing. If you 2nd grade child is sick, you need to call them in, and send a note the next day. If Admin loses the note, your child is unexcused.... Also, if your child is sick and you send them to school (and want the to stay in from recess), you need a note from the DR. LOL The high school,,, just call them in sick (or they might be able to call themselves in).. No note required.... (kind of backwards).. I guess they think that 2nd graders might be skipping school>>??? LOL
