Principals and teachers were very helpful when asked. I am not aware of an organized program per se.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Lots of barbeques, sports events, school wide celebrations. not aware of any PTA but I was always welcomed by teachers and admn.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Two of my children have graduated/attended the high school and have gone on to a formal education at good schools in the US.As I read the other reviews of UAS, I noticed an incredible degree of negativity. It is unfortunate that apparently only the pessimists are logging onto this site. I , for one, have a very long and very positive relationship with UAS and would like to uplift her for all of her goodness that she has fostered in so many young people. I have 21 years of experience in the field of education and I give a thumbs up to UAS, her students, her parents, her owner, and all of her employees!
