As both a local real estate agent and a mom, I appreciate the dedication of the students, parents, and staff in our local schools that keep them some of the most consistently top performing schools around.  Below are some of the performance scores for the Union county school district overall as well as some notable recognition for individual schools. For full information view the UCPS 2017-2018 Accountability Report and NC Report Cards.

  • Total number of schools – 53
  • Total enrollment – 41,780
  • Number of 2015 High School Graduates- 2,863

  • Marvin Elementary, Weddington Elementary, and Weddington Middle have been Honor Schools of Excellence every year since opening.

Programs that may be of interest to parents include the International Baccalaureate program offered at Marvin Ridge High School and the language immersion programs offered at three elementary schools. The IB program is a rigorous curriculum opportunity offered to any student in the district with applications due in February. Space is limited as this is a very popular and competitive program available to rising Juniors with a track record of academic excellence. You can get more information by clicking here.

UCPS offers immersion programs for Chinese and Spanish to children starting in kindergarten. These classes are limited to a small number of interested students and daily instruction will be conducted by a teacher in their native language. It is the intent to expand this program to additional grades as the children are promoted. Currently, Mandarin Chinese is offered at Marvin and Kensington Elementary Schools and Spanish is offered at Antioch, Weddington, and Sun Valley Elementary Schools.  The students that pioneered this program are now in middle school!
