Open Quote Union is a nurturing, inviting environment for parents, students, staff and community! It is a school where children are taught to be respectable, good citizens. Dr. Stankus has high expectations for her school and it's members, both big and small! Union is a family and any child would be lucky to attend. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
