Patriot Families, 
We are excited about the 2021-2022 new school year and welcoming our students back! With the help of numerous building improvements, especially our brand new, state-of-the-art media center featuring individual pods with display monitors, conference rooms, individual charging stations, skylights for natural sunlight, and much more, there is a renewed sense of excitement that lends itself to a positive learning experience for our students. Thank you for your support as we are rebounding from March 2020 and accelerating to a great year at Jeannette Junior high school. Go Patriots!!

UCS Vision

All children have the right to a rigorous, high-quality education which meets their individual needs. UCS will respect, encourage and empower each and every student to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful, contributing members of a diverse community and global society.

UCS Mission

We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning in order for our students to be prepared for success in the 21st Century.
We will achieve this commitment by engaging the entire community to focus on each child's achievement, with the expectation that every student will pursue some type of post-high school educational endeavor.

Core Values

  • Every child can learn and achieve.
  • Parents and guardians are partners in the learning process.
  • Being “smart” can be achieved through persistence, hard work and effective effort.
  • Excellence is expected and celebrated.
  • Data is used to guide our decision-making.
  • All employees will exemplify ethical behavior; exhibit a strong work ethic; and continue to develop their leadership, performance and service skills.
  • Technology supports and enhances instruction, business operations, research and communications.
  • The Board of Education, district educators/staff, parents, community members and business leaders must collaborate and work as a team to enhance educational opportunities for student success.
