From The Principal:

Dear Hornet families,

Please keep in mind Utica Community Schools will continue to message important school-related information such as delayed openings, school closures or transportation concerns through a number of resources, including local media outlets.  We realize texting may be the preferred method for some families regarding UCS updates.  Heritage Junior High School and Utica Community Schools have a service for parents who would like information texted directly to them.  To join this system, please text “Y” to 67587

ATTENTION 8TH GRADE PARENTS!
We are planning for the 2020-2021 school year, your child’s freshman year.  The 2020 application process for UCS Specialty Programs is available on our district website. Applications will be available online Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.  Click here
UCS Specialty Programs Page for frequently asked questions/answers and the latest information about our four specialty programs: Utica Academy for International Studies (UAIS), Utica Center for Mathematics, Science and Technology (MST), Utica Center for Science and Industry (CSI) and Stevenson Manufacturing, Automation and Design Engineering Academy (MADE)

UCS Vision

All children have the right to a rigorous, high-quality education which meets their individual needs. UCS will respect, encourage and empower each and every student to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful, contributing members of a diverse community and global society.

UCS Mission

We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning in order for our students to be prepared for success in the 21st Century.
We will achieve this commitment by engaging the entire community to focus on each child's achievement, with the expectation that every student will pursue some type of post-high school educational endeavor.

Core Values

  • Every child can learn and achieve.
  • Parents and guardians are partners in the learning process.
  • Being “smart” can be achieved through persistence, hard work and effective effort.
  • Excellence is expected and celebrated.
  • Data is used to guide our decision-making.
  • All employees will exemplify ethical behavior; exhibit a strong work ethic; and continue to develop their leadership, performance and service skills.
  • Technology supports and enhances instruction, business operations, research and communications.
  • The Board of Education, district educators/staff, parents, community members and business leaders must collaborate and work as a team to enhance educational opportunities for student success.
