Counseling Services

 

UAS Counseling Program’s mission is helping develop academic excellence along with career, personal, and social development for all students to become productive citizens and lifelong learners.

Curriculum Development

Curriculum Coordinators help facilitate and collaborate with administrators and teachers to create high-quality professional development opportunities for teachers.

During the school year, the coordinators develop UAS curriculum plans and evaluate its textbooks and software programs. Specific content area standards are compared to United States National Standards and International Standards then reviewed and updated accordingly.

Based on teachers’ needs, the coordinators create and help tailor instructional materials, support implementation of new materials in the classroom, and mentor or train educators. They also partner alongside teachers as instructional coaches to increase student achievement.

Transportation

We offer transportation services throughout a regular academic year for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Our drivers are reliable and ensure your child’s safety on and off the bus.

We espouse to provide passengers with a safe, clean, and hostile-free environment and provide students on all buses with proper safety and security equipment such as seatbelts, computer tracking, and camera monitors.

Due to COVID-19 health and safety considerations, transportation services are suspended during e-learning and any learning sessions without full attendance.

Canteen

We believe that a healthy student is a happy student and a happy student is an alert student. Our canteen’s menu is based on Ministry of Private Education’s approved vendors and provides students with the best choices for their lunches. Additionally, the food is inspected daily by our registered medical team to ensure student health.

Parents are encouraged to provide healthful lunches and snacks for their children at school, especially if students participate in after-school extra-curricular activities.
