High School Principal’s Message


As an educator of twenty-five years, I am honored to serve your children at UAS as their Principal! This is my first international experience and I am eager to learn about the culture.  The mission of the school will be applied to all goals that we have for your child. High expectations with a firm hand will guide the students of UAS to become responsible adults. Your child should be an accomplished well rounded international student that has the goal of attending a post-secondary institution of their choice after graduation. I am here to serve parents, staff, community members and especially the students of our school. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
