Eppler Junior High School will empower students to achieve their full potential and become productive contributors in a diverse society.

Our Mission:

Parents, students, teachers, and administrators will work with the community to foster a safe and respectful learning environment that will promote independent critical thinking and problem solving.

Recycling

NJHS is continuing to sponsor a recycling fundraiser in partnership with PlanetGreen. They have made a few changes and they are no longer accepting large toner cartridges. Please do not send in the toner cartridges. They do accept:
 Inkjet cartridges
 Cell phones
 GPS
 MP3
 IPods
 Cameras
 E-readers
 Calculators
 Tablets
 Video games, consoles, accessories
It helps Eppler earn money and it helps the landfills! NJHS students can earn hours for donating items, but anyone can bring these items to room 19. Thank you for your support! Please check out PlanetGreenRecycling.com for more information.

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.
