Universal American School's greatest asset is its faculty and staff. We strive to prepare each child for academic and personal success in higher education and life in a global society

UAS considers all applications for employment independent of their race, color, and  national and ethnic background and consistent with the school’s Mission, Philosophy, and Beliefs. UAS seeks teachers who are passionate about teaching, have the appropriate credentials (B.A. minimum, advanced degree preferred), and ideally will have 3 or more years of experience including teaching in international schools.

Teachers with experience are required or highly desirable for certain assignments at elementary level (PYP) and at the high school level (IBDP). Above all, we seek colleagues who are effective and helpful co-workers ready to commit fully to the expectations and values of UAS, including involvement in after-school activities and in school community service events.  


UAS is truly a community of learners. Professional development is an integral component to ensuring the highest quality teaching and learning. Teachers regularly attend off-site opportunities for professional learning, however, the school values professional learning that is embedded in the daily life of our teachers.
