Driven by knowledge, inspired by success.

One of the Universal American School’s greatest assets is its high quality 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.

Important Notice for Candidates: Be Aware of Potential Recruiting Scams

Please note that some teachers seeking overseas employment have been approached by various individuals or groups running scams and requesting money. These individuals/groups claim to be a reputable school (or assume the identity of an existing, reputable school) and ask teachers and/or administrators seeking overseas employment to send them money to assist in the payment of a work visa, interview or application fees, plane tickets, or other recruitment related costs. Please know that no legitimate school will ask any teacher or administrator to pay them to obtain a job and/or work visa. If you have been asked by an international school to send money to cover such costs, you are probably the target of an elaborate scam. Be aware that these fraudulent activities seem to becoming more frequent. Do not send money or pass on banking information to any school seeking professionals to come work with them.

All international candidates are urged to be diligent in investigating potential schools during the recruiting process and prior to signing a contract. Use extreme caution if you have been asked for money or private information.
