Principal's Message:

It is an honor to be the principal of this wonderful state of the art school. As a leader and educator, it is my duty and mission to continue to create and enhance a positive, rigorous and safe educational environment to the students of Union City; the city that helped shape the person I am today. I am proud to be a member of this multicultural family, a family that values hard work, individuality, and a lifelong love for learning. Therefore, to all my Shining Star Generals: DREAM BIG!
