  • I have been going to North Union High School for about 4 years now(currently senior) and all i want to say is that there is quite a drug problem at north union, there are a few biased and unfair teachers, and i know of many parents who are sick of this overrated school. I will be the first to admit that i used to be into drugs and pills and such. it was terrible, the amount of drug trafficking in this school is insane. Being a student who has been there, its tough to blame students for getting into it when the teachers wont give certain students a chance to learn because they seem like "bad kids". a couple good things to say, there are a few very very caring teachers in this school( including the lunch ladies :) and that the school is very nice and has a high level of security.

  • Ive gone to school here since preschool and i have had no problems with it at all! Of course there are drugs, most school have some kids that do it (not saying its ok) but ive never seen a fight until my senior year and that was only 2 kids that came to school drunk. Its a wonderful school with good education and sports. I will send my kids here when i have them and anyone else should because it is a wonderful school.

  • The school has great Cafeteria food. I'm not sure if the school is good or not, but at the end of the day the food is all that matters.
