Our Superintendent of Schools
Dear UUSD Community,
Throughout our district you can feel the momentum and excitement building. From our elementary and junior high schools to the dynamic campus at Upland High School, the extraordinary efforts of our faculty, staff, and administrators are energizing students, creating pathways to lifelong advancement opportunities, and transforming this wonderful community we call home.
It begins with our commitment at UUSD to the whole child, ensuring that all students have the support, skills, and security they need live healthier lives and become responsible, caring adults.
In recent years, Upland schools have earned national acclaim in the areas of health and nutrition, our AVID and STEM programs have opened doors of opportunity for students regardless of their economic standing or family background, and innovative partnerships are providing our students new pathways to college and careers.
Today, UUSD stands as a model for school districts throughout California. Every measurement of academic performance and college readiness is on the rise. From their first day in school, students are provided the tools to make healthy choices and lead productive lives. Our collaboration with major institutions in the community make our campuses among the most forward-thinking, and safest, anywhere.
Of course, we couldn’t achieve any of this without the support of the families we serve. Parental involvement in Upland’s schools is essential to our students being able to reach for the stars and fulfill their dreams.
Our students, your children, deserve nothing less, and we’re proud to work side by side with you in ensuring that they have the opportunity to succeed and prosper as adults. The world they’re entering is more competitive and complex than ever, but together we’re giving them the tools they will need.
Thank you for your support of the Upland Unified School District and for giving us the privilege of teaching your children.
Dr. Nancy Kelly, Superintendent of Schools
