Superintendent’s Message

Dear UAS Community,

“Knowledge is power, community is strength and positive attitude is everything.” 

Lance Armstrong

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you and your family to the Universal American School as we celebrate our 47th year of academic excellence! Our dedicated administrators, faculty and support staff are excited to welcome you to a safe and invigorating learning environment.  Your child’s well-being is a top priority and we continue to be focused on the whole child, recognizing that students must be healthy inside and out so as to reach their full potential.

This year we will continue the work of bringing our definition of learning to life.

At UAS, “Learning is the conscious cultivation of character and mind”.

Our staff will continue to develop lessons that are student driven, engaging and collaborative; Students will be able to master the content of their subjects and then apply their knowledge to multiple areas of learning. We will be rolling out our school-wide positive behavior management plan. Your level administrators will provide further details soon.

In closing, I urge you to be our partner in making your child’s educational experience at The Universal School one of the best times in their young lives. We stand prepared to assist you in your child’s educational journey and openly welcome your questions, concerns and suggestions for making our school the best it can possibly be. 

Kind Regards,

Joan Khaja, M.Ed.
