Assistant Superintendent’s Message

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ― Mahatma Gandhi


Dear Parents,

It is a pleasure for me to serve as your Assistant Superintendent for the academic year 2016-17.  I have been an educator of the Universal American School since 1987.  During this time, I have seen many wonderful changes in our facilities, curriculum and delivery of instruction.  The one component that has remained unchanged is our caring commitment to one another and our school’s mission.  We place a high degree of emphasis on our academic programs and expect our students to be responsible, productive and ethical citizens.   We want to empower our students with the essential knowledge, understandings, and skills necessary for making rational and intelligent decisions.  We understand that our children are our greatest asset.  They will be our future leaders.

Please join us in making your child’s educational experience at the Universal American School one of the best times in their young lives.  We stand prepared to assist you at every turn and openly welcome your thoughts, concerns, questions, suggestions, and ideas for making our school the best it can possibly be.
