  • The principal doesn't really take care of stuff around there. It's always the vice principal and he takes it over the top. The students hate the dress code. Due to the fact most of them have facial piercings or like outstanding hair and you cant have anything like that. (Even though in my opinion peoples hair and face wont affect others grades) Some teachers do a horrible job at teaching their study. The gym class is honestly the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. The teacher should be ashamed of themselves. Homework is a large part of the students life. I believe homework is over working the children. School is for home, home is for family and friends not math and history. I still don't see why our children need to know about history, it's a useless subject. They wont use it in their future unless they are going into law. Because history repeats itself only in law, and government. There is no free time for the students and their schedules ARE NOT flexible.

  • Utica has really improved over the past few years! The new school building looks great, and the Band/Music program is excellent.

  • I absolutely hated my educational experience within this school. The teachers were reluctant to provide students with extra help. The cleanliness of the school was absolutely horrible and the school lunches were disgusting. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.

    Thank You,
