15 Parent Reviews for Union Grove Middle School

We moved from NY in Aug 2013. It was a bit of an adjustment for my daughter going into the 6th grade. However her teachers helped her and always keep in contact if they feel she may fall behind. Haven't had any problems with the teachers. She said some students can be mean but never was she bullied.

She recently missed an extended period of school due to being sick and 3 of her 4 core subject teachers were difficult ...  Read more

Great school, academically. Seems to be a problem with the staff adjusting to the changing diversity of the school. And I can't shake the impression I'm getting of some blatant unfairness with the extracurricular activities.

On the surfac the school appears excellent due to testing scores; however, the curriculunm concentrates on testing methods and CRCT subject matter, leaving analytical thinking skills lacking in the core teaching methods. Due to zoning,a large number of forclosures and declining real estate, the schools ...  Read more

I am not sure what the parent meant in the June 2008 review. I have lived in the northern counties in the past few years and feel Union Grove Middle School is definately devoted to excellence. This goes far beyond 'teaching to the test'. I'm sure everyone would appreciate the fact that one of the ...  Read more
