We have 2 girls that were on both ends of the learning spectrum. One was learning disabled with an auditory processing and speech impairment and the other graduated with several honors. UCS encouraged both of our girls to constantly keep pushing themselves and to never settle. Our family was very grateful to all the special education teachers and staff.
They truly took an interest in helping my learning disabled daughter achieve her maximum potential.
Also very grateful for the passionate and talented teaching staff at the Center for Science and Industry who go above and beyond every single day!

They need additional funding for their students. Largest school district in the state, yet the school gets less per student than other districts nearby. This means that all other districts around us can afford an ipad for each student, UCS does not have the funds for this. Teachers are great though!
I enjoyed the diverse atmosphere and learning experience as a student of Utica Community School District. The teaching/counseling staff are highly knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. Utica Community School District provides a quality education and although the expectations are high, educational goals are attainable. Proud to be apart of Utica Community Schools!
