The mission of Union School is proficiency for all students. To achieve our mission we will provide a supportive environment and an exemplary educational program built upon a foundation of respect and high standards for achievement and effort. Our dedicated and well-trained professional staff implement Farmington's standards-led curriculum and extend expectations for proficiency within all academic and social domains, including literacy, numeracy, content areas, health, technology, the arts, and character.
Goals and Priorities
Each year, performance-based school goals are developed collaboratively with the faculty, the School Council (parents, teachers, community members), and the principal. School goals are supported by ongoing professional development for teachers, consultation with specialists, and opportunities for coaching.
