  • Principal's Welcome

    Beth Grillo

    Welcome to Jeannette Junior High School!

    My name is Beth Grillo, and I am the proud principal of Jeannette Junior High School. It is my honor to come to school every day and work with this incredible group of students and staff. Jeannette is home to one of most diverse groups of students in the district, and we learn and grow together in a mission to offer our students the opportunities to pursue their personal goals.

    Here at Jeannette, three common values unite us: Community, Integrity, and Leadership. Every day, we aspire to instill these values in ourselves as educators and to help our students see how these values can positively impact their own lives, the Jeannette family, and the world at large.

    UCS is the best destination for students to achieve their dreams. We at Jeannette work closely with our students to encourage them to follow the pathway within UCS that will help them get there, whether it's attending Stevenson High or Utica High, applying to one of UCS' top-notch speciality programs - The Gene L. Klida Academy for International Studies, The Utica Center for Math, Science, and Technology, The Utica Center for Science and Industry, The Stevenson Manufacturing, Automation, Design, and Engineering, or the Utica Academy of Health and Human Services - or preparing to take advantage of Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses, school-to-work programs or dual enrollment. 

    Jeannette is a truly special place. We are united in our love for this school, our pride in our diverse heritage, and a quest to help students see their potential and strive to reach their goals.
