Welcome to Union High School
Welcome to Union High School. Union High School is a rural public school district located in northeastern Iowa with approximately 370 students and 45 staff members.
UHS operates on a trimester schedule (6-period day/60 minutes each). We offer many co-curricular and extracurricular opportunities such as FFA, Drama, Choir, Band, Dance Team, Cheerleading, Speech, Silver Cord (Community Service Volunteer Opportunities), FTC & FRC Robotics Club, Art Club, and German Club.
At Union, academic excellence will always be a top priority. Students are recognized in an “academic pep rally” at the end of each trimester. 80% of all students are continually recognized for meeting the academic excellence criteria. Union High School staff set four goals each year.
The 2017-18 goals are:
- Academic Excellence Awards: 80% of student body recognized
- ACT: 22.7 (avg composite)
- Attendance: 95.5%
- Iowa Assessments: 90% of student body (grades 9-11 meeting proficient and/or growth measures)
UHS offers many IAHSAA (boy’s athletic union) & IGHSAU (girl’s athletic union) sports such as cross country (boys/girls), volleyball, swimming (boys/girls), football, basketball (boys/girls), wrestling, track (boys/girls), soccer (boys/girls), golf (boys/girls), tennis (boys/girls), baseball, and softball. In addition to Iowa High School Athletic Union sanctioned sports, many students are able to participate in local volleyball, rugby, and ice hockey club sports.
Union High School students are expected to be respectful, be involved, and take pride in our school community. We believe in the Knight Code of Conduct. Union High School staff and student body are committed to maintaining a strong school culture that values relationships and collaboration among staff and students. We are proud to be UNION KNIGHTS!
