Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe how quickly the school year has passed and come to an end. I would like to thank you for your faith, trust, and commitment to the mission of the Universal American School.

It is your belief in the values that UAS represents that helps us sustain our exceptional standards. I respect the sacrifices each family makes to send their child to UAS, and we will continue to put your child first in everything we do! This was a very busy year, and you played a great role in making it a success!

Although it is a hectic time of year, it is the time when I most realize how blessed we all are to be part of the UAS family. Parents and teachers commit their time and energy every day toward creating a nurturing environment in which children can thrive!

We wish our eighth grade students all the best as they move into 9th grade and continue growing as school leaders. The end of each academic year is a time for celebration and reflection on the impact of a quality education, and parents can proudly point to their UAS child as:

  • A problem-solver
  • An effective communicator
  • A reflective and creative thinker
  • A self- directed, responsible, lifelong learner
  • A collaborative contributor to society who finds meaning, dignity and vocation in work
  • A responsible citizen

In closing, I wish each family a blessed Ramadan and a happy, safe and enjoyable summer. I look forward to seeing you all in August.


Warm Regards,

Charles Lester


Vice Principal’s Message


Dear Parents and Students,
I would like to extend my thanks to you for helping your child rise to the high standards of UAS. The UAS Honor Code is a charter that requires everyone’s involvement. There has been a great improvement in the behavior of our students this year, and much of this has to do with the role that you play. It is my hope that the UAS Passport has helped keep you informed and updated on your child’s behavior. The aims of the Passport are to communicate and keep track of positive behavior as well as areas that need improvement. With the end of the 3rd quarter, students who received 5 or less infractions for the quarter will be rewarded for their efforts. The beauty about the end of one quarter and the beginning of the next is that students get the opportunity to start anew. With the final quarter of the school year only a few days away, I would like to thank you in advance for helping your child reach the finish line of what has been a very positive and productive school year.

Thank you for your continuous support,

Roman Holmes
Assistant Principal
