Elementary

Innovative education occurs at each of our elementary schools. Union elementary schools are committed to providing educational programs focused upon excellence and designed to meet diverse student needs. In addition to a comprehensive academic program, a character education program, Character Counts!, is an integral part of student experiences at the elementary level. Recognizing that a cheerful climate enhances learning, students enjoy modern facilities that are maintained on a continual basis.

Union Public Schools

Highlights of the elementary program include:

  • Comprehensive literacy program featuring a wide variety of engaging literature resources and strategy instruction, including the services of reading specialists when needed.
  • An emphasis on S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.) Project Lead the Way curriculum is offered at all of our elementary schools. Through activity-, project-, and problem-based curriculum, PLTW gives students in kindergarten through high school a chance to apply what they know, identify problems, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning. For teachers, our engaging, rigorous professional development model provides tools to empower students and transform the classroom into a collaboration space where content comes to life.
  • Technology incorporated as an integral part of each elementary school. Classrooms and labs have Internet access. Up-to-date hardware and software ensure that students benefit from technology resources.  
  • Student-operated television studios are active at all elementary schools.
  • Media centers which support the total academic program through extensive collections of materials for students’ use.
  • Science labs at every school.
  • Inquiry-based science instruction endorsed by the National Science Foundation and designed to ensure students master national science standards.
  • Inquiry-based math instruction designed to ensure students maintain national math standards.
  • Before/after-school and summer enrichment and remediation programs.
