Welcome Back!

It is a pleasure to welcome our new and returning families. We are excited and look forward to a great year at the Universal American School. We are thrilled to have all our students back in September! This year we are delighted to bring back many of our extra curricular activities at UAS and look forward to an exciting year. 

At the Elementary school we are addressing the child holistically and supporting our students academic, social and emotional well being.  Our teachers and staff have been working hard to make this year the best experience for our students. We are privileged to have highly qualified, dedicated and talented teachers to ensure that our students have an experience of academic excellence. At UAS, “Learning is the conscious cultivation of character and mind”. We strive to work in partnership with you to ensure your child reaches their full potential. We choose safety, kindness and responsibility. 

I am honored to serve as your Elementary Principal. I look forward to working in partnership with each of you to make your child’s experience successful, joyous and filled with great memories. We look forward to a great year! 

Warm Regards,

Vice Principal’s Message

Dear UAS Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  My name is Elizabeth Myers and I am the Elementary Vice Principal.  This will be my 4th year at UAS.  I am thrilled to welcome all of you back to elementary.  A big welcome to those students moving up to be in 1st grade.  This should be a fantastic and much more normal school year.  All of our teachers are ready to receive your students, the classrooms have been cleaned and arranged and much learning is sure to take place!  I hope that every parent takes time each day to talk to their student and have them tell you all of the amazing things they are learning each day.  This is such a fun time in our students lives!  It is great to be in a partnership with parents to help these students grow towards their potential.
