Dear UAS Parents, As we near the 2015-16 school year, the Esol Education Board is pleased to see that the changes implemented at UAS this academic year are having a positive impact on student outcomes. Various data points, including recent MAP test scores, SAT scores, predicted overall IB grades, and senior class university acceptances demonstrate that academic achievement has substantially improved this year. Student participation and performance in extra-curricular pursuits including sports teams and programs, visual and performing arts, service learning and other activities has also been very high. Some of the changes made led to some initial confusion amongst parents, and we realize that we need to better communicate and explain changes before implementing them in the future.
