Dakota Union High School is a public high school located in Dakota City is is currently run by Principal Aguilar. A statue adorns the front lawn. An outdoor basketball court, track field, football field, indoor swimming pool, and indoor gymnasium can also be found on campus. Each student is issued a unique 12 digit identification number. Student ID cards contain this number, a photograph, name, height, weight, eye color, and sex. Like most public schools, Dakota Union has to constantly deal with budget cuts. In one instance, a budget cut reduced the journalism budget by 40%. When news reporters were on campus grounds to investigate a monster microbe, several students used the opportunity to voice her concern. Second-rate facilities and equipment also plague the school such as broken vending machines. In an odd twist, Dakota Union is the school nearest Dakota City Police Department headquarters and its Metahuman Wing.

Moore, however, turned out to be Darcy Mason, a fugitive creation of Toyman. The staff includes Mr. Janus, the janitor, and Dr. Franklin, psychologist.

Other extracurricular activies are talent shows and recycling campaigns. While stopping a robbery in progress, Static happened upon several crates destined for Dakota Union, new computers. He delivered them personally to the student body as they prepared for a homecoming ceremony, marking their first sighting of him. In the early days of his superhero career, Hawkins and Foley utilized the science laboratories to conduct their investigations such as studying Hawkins' blood post-Big Bang and a microbe caught in the event, as well. Aside from Static and Gear, Superman was also sighted on campus. Dakota Union has had its share of Bang Babies, but it also came under attack by a giant microbe, spider, and cockroach. It was also invaded by robots sent by Toyman to kidnap Daisy Watkins. Several buildings were damaged in the attempt.
