Please know my child has been incredibly motivated, encouraged, cared and educated in her time at Utica. I would highly recommend. Brandon Banet, in the After Care program is incredibly kind and aware of the needs of all children under his supervision.

Not impressed. You hear all over this area about how ''wonderful'' Utica is, and about how it's the best school in the district. I think they let that go to their heads, because all they seem to care about is churning out more of the same. I have several above average kids-they do not get in trouble, but I will tell you, they keep the teachers busy. It appears they are more interested in drilling the personality out of my kids and making them into cookie cutter kids than working to the best of my kids abilities. One of them is in the honors program, the other is too young, best testing well above grade level. Yet while they don't get in trouble, I constantly get notes about how ''her drawings are immature''... and that's one of the less ridiculous issues that's been addresses. You would think they''d encourage individuality, but the message I''ve received... 'the kids should do this''. It doesn't seem to matter that my kids are not just passing...they are excelling. What concerns the teachers is my kids, even they don't get in trouble, just ''do'' things like ''immature'' drawings. No. I''m not impressed. I''m considering private or Montessori school at this point.
