Dear Utica High families,
Welcome back Chieftains! Last week we registered nearly 1500 students for classes at Utica High! This is the largest class of students we’ve had in the six years I’ve been at Utica growing from just over 1200 students my first year to nearly 1500 students this fall. And with that, we have a lot of new faces at Utica High in the from of incoming sophomores and teachers to help support their growth! We have had a busy summer. Though we did not have construction on Utica High proper, our facilities have seen some incredible improvements. Our Tennis Courts and track were resurfaced, our stadium had new field turf put in and we had major upgrades to our technological infrastructure as well as new computers for our language lab and computer science classes as well as laptops for general education.  That was all thanks to the Bond passed by this incredible community a year ago! School is back in session and thanks to the support of our community it is even more prepared to serve our young people!

This week our exceptional instructional team came back to school, after a summer spent preparing to help your children rise to their potential. We welcomed many familiar faces, and several new faces as well. We welcome new staff to Utica High this fall!
