The United High School is pleased to announce the completion of a brand new greenhouse to be utilized by the Vocational Agriculture and Biological Science departments.  The project was a joint effort of the Science program, the ag program, and the Galesburg Community Foundation.  Plans are in the works for flower sales through the ag department for the next year.  United is thrilled to add this hands on "classroom" for our students to use throughout their high school careers.

United High School will be offering sports physicals at the high school on Tuesday June 21, 2016, from noon to 4:30pm by Dr. Jeremy Carrier of Cottage Medical Arts Clinic.  Cost will be $15.00 per physical.
