    Looking for a school for my daughter. Big "thank you" for the former student review here. Just what we expected in Worcester... Spelling and grammar alone are unbelievably awful. Not to mention these test scores... Clearly we will be searching elsewhere.

    I don't feel like the curriculum is up to speed with what they should be learning. My son gets very mediocre work things that he learned in first and second in grade in a different school he is now in the 4th grade. I think the staff is ok but the school looks like a dump.

    My daughter is not receiving sufficient schooling at Union Hill Elementary. Her teacher does not check her class work nor does she confirm whether or not her homework is complete. Also when I pick up my daughter early I notice the teacher has little to no control over the organization of the classroom. Last year there were problems with her teacher s communication skills. The teacher obviously had extremely short patience with children and found it acceptable to raise her voice in frustration from their behavior. I am extremely dissatisfied with this school's teaching administration's performance in my experience.

    This is a very decent school. I feel that they have been fairly cooperative in my daughters learning. They have a great behavioral program! It's a good place for children with behavioral needs before looking in to alternative schools.

    Union Hill School is a good facility. They have many tutors and such to help their students succeed. They also are very eager to have meetings with the parents to discuss the ways they feel would be struggling points and what couldbe done to benefit the child. Parent/school connections are very important to them.
