Dear UAS Families,  

It is my pleasure to welcome new and returning families to a great year at Universal American School. I am thrilled to have students physically back in our classrooms as soon as possible. Our staff eagerly awaits their laughter, energy, and enthusiasm for learning. It will be an amazing year!

I encourage parents and students to visit our school website regularly for current news and updates.

I’m honored to serve as High School Principal! It is great to be a part of a community where students, teachers, and parents care for each other and strive to build meaningful relationships that support academic and social-emotional growth. I look forward to working with you and assisting each student to meet his or her personal goals.

Let’s make it an awesome year!

Vice Principal’s Message

Dear High School Community,  

Welcome to another exciting school year at the Universal American School! I am looking forward to welcoming our new and returning High School students, and I am excited to see all of our students on campus in the near future.  

It is a true privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic success and social growth. Although this school year is starting much differently than the norm, I am excited to get to know our students and form positive and supportive relationships with them. We have an amazing staff that is guided on the principle of doing what is best for students. We consider ourselves a family, and we are excited to welcome you and your student(s) into the UAS family.

My door is always open. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you and helping each student at the Universal American School meet his or her goals and have a successful school year!
