The Secondary School is comprised of Grades 6 through 12. During the course of their six years in this division, students build on the fundamental skills learned in Elementary School. Greater emphasis is placed on students’ ability to analyze, synthesize and critique the ideas of others and to develop and clearly communicate their own. As students progress through Secondary School, they develop more independence and self-initiative.
At UAS we believe students have compelling ideas worth sharing and debating. In the classroom, teachers provide ample opportunities for students to develop their unique voices and to engage with “real world” global, cultural, social and ethical issues. Outside the classroom, UAS offers an array of programs, clubs and athletic teams that allow students to strengthen their leadership, creativity, problem solving and teamwork skills.
Ultimately, our goal is that each student leaves UAS as a globally aware, creative, emotionally intelligent, collaborative critical thinker equipped with the academic and technology skills to successfully pursue their goals.
