Union Elementary is the best in Paulding County. I'm sorry to the Parent who posted "the women were unprofessional and clicky. " I respect ALL of Union's administration and staff. "Parent" just must have had a bad experience because that is so far from the way it is at Union. I want to thank the teachers for being so caring with my child and all you do.

Unprofessional, clicky women. They care more about each other than they do for the students...unless you're a parent that "fits in" with their click, your child goes unnoticed. They are a "backwoods" school, so they can get away with anything. They dote on each other for being the best teachers and staff in Paulding county. So, untrue. New Georgia Elementary and Burnt Hickory are the way to go.
