Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!

I am once again honored to serve you and your children as principal of the Middle School.A fantastic year lies ahead of us!

We have several teachers returning to the Middle School for the 2017-18 school year, a few teachers returning to UAS and Kuwait after a brief time in other regional schools, and a few teachers who are both new to Kuwait and the school.

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.

We are excited to be introducing the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environment this year to all Middle School grades (5-8).

We will do our best to insure that students leave the MIddle School knowing how to use technology in a safe and responsible way that enhances their lives and careers in the 21st Century.

Information regarding acceptable devices is available on the Middle School webpage.

Our main instructional goal this year is to make sure every student has the opportunity to reach his or her academic and social potential. With that in mind, we will be focusing on growth in all areas of our Math program. We will also be continuing with the highly successful Accelerated Reading program.

In addition, we will be emphasizing communication with parents about the academic growth of their son or daughter via teacher webpages and the new Parent Portal system.

Again, I feel honored to serve you and your child, and to be part of the long and rich tradition of the Universal American School.

Kind Regards,

Charles Lester

Middle School Principal

Universal American School.


Vice Principal’s Message

ms-vice-principal-mr-roman-holmesDear Parents and Students,

The aims of the Middle School are to provide your child with an excellent teaching and learning environment, which focuses on a gradual acquisition of 21st century skill-sets. The world needs responsible, productive, and ethical citizens, and therefore, much of our collective energy in the Middle School is spent honing in on these skills. Problems are inherently part of life, and the Middle School provides a safe and structured setting where students can acquire the essential and necessary knowledge, understandings, and skills to cope with the academic and real-world demands that they will face.

My primary role as assistant principal is to help maintain a positive school climate. Each day that I arrive at school, my goal is to help the students succeed within the classroom and beyond. The safety, efficiency, and support of the school community is of utmost importance. In addition to instructional and operational management, I am responsible for helping students make morally and appropriate decisions regarding their behavior and conduct.

The Universal American School of Kuwait continues to be a leading institution of learning here in the State of Kuwait. This growth and accomplishment has only occurred because of the diligent relationships between parents, students, teachers, and admins. I look forward to helping your child realize their unique and developing potential as learners and members of the UAS community.


Mr. Roman Holmes
