Principal’s Message

Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members,

Hello, my name is Chris Passons. It is a privilege to serve the Universal American School and its community as the Principal of UAS Middle School. On behalf of the staff, I take pleasure in welcoming you to our school’s website. Whether you are a first-time visitor or are already a member of our community, I encourage you to explore our website and discover our school’s activities and programs.

A brief introduction. I was born and raised in Texas. After graduating high school and serving in the military, I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from Western Governors University in 2008. In 2012, I received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and EC-12 Principal’s Certification from Texas. I am currently working on my Doctorate in Educational Leadership. I have been in education since 2004, serving as a leader in the United States, Greece, and El Salvador.

We trust that you had a memorable summer and would like to welcome you back to a new academic year. A new school year means connecting with old friends and meeting new friends. This school year will no doubt be unique, memorable, and, at times, challenging. I am confident that we will come together as a community to create the very best experience possible for our students. We will continue to strive for academic excellence and support our students with their social and emotional well-being. Our teachers and staff will continue to collaborate with parents and community members to prepare our students for the challenges of being productive citizens.  

Thank you in advance for supporting your child’s success at school, in the classroom, and at home. If I can ever be of assistance, please email or call me. 


Kind Regards,


Chris Passons

Vice Principal’s Message

Dear UAS Middle School,

I would like to welcome students, staff, teachers, and parents to the start of the academic year 2021-2022.  We are eager to launch our school year virtually on September 12.  This returning E-Learning period will help the students transition successfully and prepare for the reopening of school at the end of September.  It has been a long time since we have had our hallways and classrooms filled with joyful sounds and laughter.  I have no doubt in my mind that together we will be able to build a strong foundation and provide the best support for all our students. Our staff and teachers are very dedicated to ensuring the emotional, social, and academic growth of our beloved students.  I am also available and can be reached by email, phone call or even Zoom meeting for help and support.  

Wishing all our community continued good health,


Asil Addasi

Middle School Vice Principal
