Union School District, San Jose
The Union School District operates six elementary schools (K-5) and two middle schools (6-8) in the greater San Jose, California, USA area. The district serves 4400 students. Confusingly, the district is not a union school district under California law; rather, it was named in honor of the Union Army when founded in 1863, during the American Civil War.
