About Union County Public Schools

Welcome to the Union County Public Schools. We are committed to the vision that our schools will exemplify excellence and equity such that all students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to successfully embark on their chosen path in life. Our small community schools still have that small town atmosphere. Teachers still call parents by their first names and students are never numbers. While we are small town America, ample resources have been spent on our schools. From a one to one technology initiative to our unparalleled security, we embrace the future.

We encourage our parents to be involved in his/her child's educational experience and we look forward to partnering with you.

This is a great place to raise a family!

Union County is one of the best kept secrets in East Tennessee.   Our beautiful county has so much to offer in terms of outdoor recreation, serenity, and musical heritage.  Our population is around 20,000 with three cities, Luttrell, Maynardville, and Plainview. We have one of the most pristine lakes in our great state, Norris Lake, along with Big Ridge State Park, and Chuck Swan Wildlife Management Area.  These amenities provide the perfect setting for camping, boating, skiing, rafting, fishing, and hunting. While peace and serenity are one of our biggest draws, our residents and visitors are within a few miles of one of Tennessee’s largest cities, Knoxville.  When speaking of musical talent, Union County has produced its fair share. Country music stars Roy Acuff, Chet Atkins, Lois Johnson, Carl Smith, and Kenny Chesney all called Union County home. Come see why so many people visit and call Union County home… It Must Be Something In the Water.
