Today is a special day at UAS as our school is turning 63! 🥳We would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of our community, present and past for their involvement in making UAS the vibrant multicultural learning community that it is today.A little history about our school 🤓The Uruguayan American School was founded on April 14, 1958 by a group of Uruguayan and U.S. citizens residing in Montevideo. Their goal was to promote an intercultural understanding between Uruguay and the United States and to provide a U.S.-style education in Uruguay which included the curricular programs of both countries.Over the years, as the school grew and added programs, the student body became more international.Over the years, UAS has moved to several places around the city of Montevideo. UAS first opened its doors at Luis B. Cavia in the neighborhood of Pocitos. Two years later, in 1960, the school needed extra space and moved to 26 de Marzo. Finally in 1961, UAS bought its own building at Bulevar Artigas . At the time, the school included Nursery to 8th grade, but in 1963 an annex for the Secondary school was procured at Ellauri 741. The school moved once again in 1978 to a property in Carrasco in order to enlarge the school campus. The school then included students from Nursery through 12th grade, all on the same campus. It became the school’s home for 35 years. After being in the same location for more than three decades, the school purchased its current property on Saldún de Rodríguez. ... See MoreSee Less
