Community

One thing we at UAS always hear from our visitors is how strong our sense of community is.  Our friends at the KHDA who come and inspect our school year after year, and the folks from the site visiting teams from Middle States Association & the Council of International Schools both speak highly of the involvement of all stakeholders in creating a strong school community.  Parent and student survey data year after year show how committed our families are to the mission and vision of UAS.

A bright-shining example of the sense of community we display is the unveiling of the FABC Martyr’s Wall project.  Please see the details below.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

One of the key markers of a successful school is a strong school-home connection.  This week provides an opportunity to strengthen our UAS community through clear and open dialogue regarding student achievement and progress for each and every family at our Parent/Teacher Conferences.  We encourage all parents to attend.  We love to see our students join their parents and engage in the dialogue.  Our teachers are ready to welcome parents and provide specific feedback regarding the educational journey of each of their students.

We hope to see you all here!

Fine Arts Booster Club Announcement

The Fine Arts Booster Club is working hard this year to create an Martyr’s Wall installation.  It will consist of flowers made of beaded pearls.  The more hands the various members of our community place on this project, the more meaning and impact it will have on our community.  Please see the schedule below for details on workshops that will take place in the foyer of the school.
