Welcome to Union High School. We are excited about the 2015-2016 school year. Union High School offers required courses in mathematics, English, science, social studies, business education, and technology. In addition, we offer elective courses in art, music, theater, foreign language, oral communication, health and physical education.

This strong curriculum encourages students to achieve academically, and students are recognized for outstanding achievement. We believe that Union High School provides a strong foundation for success.
In addition to a strong academic program, UHS offers a variety of extracurricular activities. Athletic programs include the following: football, softball, cross country, basketball, tennis, baseball, golf, and we also offer band. Our band is recognized throughout the state as being a superior program; in fact, the Union High Pride of Union Marching Band has won the state 2A Marching Band Championship for the last 4 consecutive years (2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012). Furthermore, class organizations at UHS encourage students to become involved in school and community service. Some of the classes available to students at UHS include Student Council, Beta, FBLA, FCA, Drama, and Math and Science.
Union High School’s faculty is committed to providing a structural and well-disciplined environment in which optimum learning takes place. A dedication to excellence and the combined efforts of students, faculty, parents and community truly make Union High School one of the best high schools in the state of MS.

Hello Jacket Nation!!
We have had a tremendous start to the school year! We have really great students, staff members, and parents. I want to take this opportunity to inform you of an important event that will be upon us shortly. Our high attendance months are October and November. We really need your help with ensuring that your children are present at school each day for at least 63% of the day. We will be offering incentives to those students that have perfect attendance at the end of each month. Attendance is important all year, not just in these two months. Students that attend school regularly are much more likely to have success that those that do not attend regularly.
Have a great day and GO JACKETS!!
