    The Promise of Utica 

    Public education is a cornerstone of America, playing a key role in building a strong community and strong nation and working to ensure a future filled with promise for all students.

    The Promise of Utica campaign focuses attention on the importance of public education, the role it plays in our nation, and the outstanding teachers, students and staff found in Utica.

    In recognition of the promise in every child, UEMS is celebrating 2017-2018 as a Year of Promise for our students, for our staff, and for the community at large.


    Simply put, our students are “The Promise of Utica,” and what happens each and every day in the classroom helps them to fulfill their promise. Our students’ accomplishments— big and small, those recognized with awards and those that result from overcoming a challenge — reflect the promise that every student holds for a bright future.


    “The Promise of Utica” is a testament to the crucial role of public education. For only public schools offer every child the educational opportunities that can open a world of possibilities they otherwise might never know. Our UEMS team is committed to keeping its promise to our students and to our community!

    Parents & Community

    At its heart, “The Promise of Utica” is found in the collective talents, will, passion, and dedication of all who make up the Utica community. Whatever our ages, backgrounds, or status, we are partners in the promise. We all are needed to bring it to life.
