Field Trips

In 2007, a group from Unity High traveled to the Gulf Coast to provide disaster relief services due to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

In December 2009, thirty-three juniors headed to Washington, D.C., as part of the Close Up program in which students learn more about the U.S. Government and democracy in action.

In the summer of 2010, students partnered up with the Movimiento Program to go to El Salvador for 10 days.
