    Unity High is a great school. Is small so every one knows every one. The teachers know every student. Since the school is small teachers have more time to work with students one on one. Teachers always help students on their work. The teachers always make sure that the students are doing there work. Even if students have missing work teachers tell them that they are missing work. I came from big public schools and when I was going to these big public schools I will always get low grades. Since I came to Unity High high I manage to keep my grades up to a 3.0. For me it has really help alot because I like the way teachers teach and because it has help keep my grades up.

    Unity high is an excellent school where you can learn and have fun at the same time. You can learn with a lot if understand something the teachers will offer their help during class or even after school. They will sit down and help you till you understand. Thats why Unity High is an excellent school.
