High School Principal

Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year

Principal Jen Bye - - Personal Message

I am excited to join the United South Central High School administrative team as the new High School Principal.  I may be new to my position this year, yet I am not new to the USC School District.  For the past 20 years, I have proudly taught high school mathematics, including college level math courses, to students at USC. I enjoy helping and engaging with our students to learn and grow to be successful citizens in our community and in our world.  

I am a proud Rebel, living in the northern part of the USC school district in Matawan.  My husband, Jim, and I have two children who have graduated from USC.  Our daughter, Monica, lives in St. Paul and works as a quality analyst.  Our son, Travis, graduated from MSU last fall with a business management degree and is working as a business manager in Pemberton.

Attending USC events and cheering on our Rebels in all that they are involved in are things that I greatly enjoy.  I also have a passion for learning and helping others.  This passion has led to my career in teaching and has now grown to leading the USC district in continuing the excellence that the community has grown to expect from our school.  Providing a safe, engaging, positive learning environment is one of my primary goals for the students at USC. 

By working together collaboratively with the staff and administrative team, I strive to provide the best opportunities for success for our students and support for our USC families.  I also value the support of our USC communities for our students.  USC students practice the USC Rebel Rights to be respectful, be responsible, and be safe to guide all actions and decisions.  These actions and decisions help students practice for their lives after attending USC High School.  Preparing our students for their futures is an important part of what we do at USC.  I’m proud to be working with an excellent team of educators and staff who have our students’ best interests at heart. 

I look forward to meeting with you.  Please send me an email or stop by my office anytime.

Warm regards,

Jen Bye
