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!

Through Utica Community Schools, I have had the privilege of being taught by some of the most amazing and passionate teachers alongside driven students. I attend the Utica Academy for International Studies, and I would have never been able to get into that school without the academic and moral support of the staff members I've encountered in elementary school at Switzer and middle school at Malow. Being at UAIS has taught me to push my personal boundaries and work hard for myself and my future. The issue, however, is the UAIS doesn't have a lot of funding. We do many fundraisers throughout the year to try and earn money for school supplies, equipment, and taking part in events, such as the Choir Festival, but sometimes it isn't enough. This is the only thing that could be improved in UCS, and specifically UAIS, because everything else I've experienced through my 11 years in the district have exceeded my expectations of what 'school' is.
What I liked about Utica Community Schools, was that at my Elementary school, Middle school, and High school, was that all my teachers actually cared about us. The schools new that my parents were deathly sick, and the teachers actually stepped up and took care of me. When I finally reached High School, we stopped receiving free lunches and sometimes after my parents died I didn't have money to buy a lunch. So my teachers would actually help me with that. Some of them would even bring a lunch for me! the teachers are what defiantly makes the Utica Community Schools District.
