School Description

Universal American School was founded in 2005.  Since then we have served our students every day, helping them become compassionate, confident learners who know who they are and what they stand for.  As you learn more about UAS the term “community” will resonate with you again and again. We are a small, not-for-profit school in the heart of family-friendly Festival City.

Equally exciting is that UAS has recently become a not-for-profit school governed by the Al Futtaim Education Foundation.  There are two important developments here. The first is that parents will know that any surplus generated by their school fees will be put back into the school.  The second is that working alongside an organization like Al Futtaim, we are uniquely positioned to provide real-world learning experiences to our students that other schools simply can not offer.

Universal American School is a wonderful place to grow and learn.  Whether you want to participate in our Fringe Festival, one of our four annual school productions, watch one of our 30+ sports teams, debate politics with our Model United Nations students, or learn about our Emirati committee or the National Honor Society, UAS has something to offer everyone.  I invite everyone to come visit our school and feel the wonderful energy here.
