From The Principal

Happy New Year Chieftain Families,


Welcome to 2017. Though this time of year is oft when people look back on the past year’s successes and struggles, this is when we, as educators, look forward to the great things that came with the turning of the sea-sons. Though in the heart of winter, we begin thinking about proms, graduations, but before we get there, we have to finish Semester 1!

The rest of the semester plays out like a blur, as we move quickly. This year’s Winter Break begins Friday, Dec. 23 and concludes as of Tuesday, Jan. 3. We return to school Wednesday, Jan 4. for a short three-day week. The week of the 9 – 13 is our last full week of school before exams which start on Wednesday, January 18. Those three days, Jan. 18 – Jan. 20 will be half days starting at normal time and ending at 10:22 providing two, roughly, 90-minute exam periods.

Our Vision:
Empowering students to reach their full potential as members of a global community.

Our Mission:
The mission of Utica High School is to develop successful learners with the support of our community of educators, students, and parents. Our diverse student body will have an equitable, rigorous, and comprehensive education in a safe and supportive environment that promotes self-discipline, motivation, and excellence in learning. We aim to cultivate individual learners with active and creative minds, and a sense of understanding and compassion for others.
