Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,


Thank you for a wonderful first semester!

As always, I am honored to serve you and your children as principal of the UAS Middle School. 

So many great things have happened at UAS since the start of school both in the classrooms and within the UAS family. 

In November, as you know, UAS sponsored its first Winter Campaign to benefit Kuwait families in need. This was certainly an eye-opening experience for those adults and students who were involved with the delivery of the items, but the collection of the items was a school-wide effort that required the caring and goodwill of many, many people. 

We have also continued our celebration of academic success with Eagle Parties. It is our sincere hope that we reach a point in which all students qualify for these celebrations.

We conducted our first ever Parent University within which parents could learn more about the MAP test. We also sent home the results of the MAP test with help and information on how to interpret the scores.

Working as a team, we will provide your son or daughter with the very best middle school education in Kuwait while preparing them for the rigors of high school and beyond.

As usual, the main objective is to make sure every student has the opportunity to reach his or her academic and social potential. 

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your son or daughter’s life. I can truly say that my experience in Kuwait and at UAS is one of the best of my life. 


Thank you!


Kind Regards,


Charles Lester

Middle School Principal

Universal American School.
