Unity Point School will begin the first round of annual PARCC testing on Tuesday, March 17th. This is the first year for the implementation of the PARCC test. For more information please read our PARCC update letter.   

Unity Point School would like to thank everyone that helped make Academic Night a success. This wonderful night could not have happened without the help of our students, parents, and staff. If you missed the event you can use this link, to see a summary of the event put together by WSIL for this week’s Class Act.

An article written by several of Unity Point's faculty members describing our school's transition into the Common Core State Standards has been featured in the Illinois School Board Journal. The article co-authored by Kerry Glenn, Maria Deaton, and Dr. Lori James-Gross may be found here.
