Summary

Students at the Universal American School (UAS) are empowered and nurtured to be caring, critical thinking, responsible, open-minded global citizens. Much of what has been developed and implemented in American education systems relates to the aspiration that all children can learn, thrive, and be successful. American schools are known for the openness to creativity and holistic educational approaches, individuality, and open-mindedness among educators and students alike. This educational paradigm is a reflection of the American ideals of freedom, equality, and voice. At UAS, that perspective is grounded in an international context that is complemented by the mission and vision of the International Baccalaureate (IB). The IB provides the lens through which we define what it means to be an internationally-minded individual.
