An involved school community lies at the heart of UCS Success

There is a common theme that underlies the stories of success and remarkable accomplishments of our students and staff.  We recognize that these accomplishments reflect the work of an entire community of residents who are committed to children and give so much time and energy to their district. 

Michigan’s second largest school district is comprised of six unique cities and townships. While each municipality has its own characteristics, the businesses and residents in nearly 70 square miles are united through Utica Community Schools. Our community has tremendous pride in its school district and is actively involved in making sure our children have every opportunity for success.

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.
Utica Community Schools, Michigan’s second largest school district, is recognized nationally in education. Student achievement in the district continues to outpace local, state and national levels, and the district’s graduation rate of 92.4 percent is more than 12 points higher than Michigan averages. The district prepares students for success in a global economy through a focus of four key strategies: providing academic excellence, preparing positive digital citizens, promoting student innovation and ensuring accountability.
