Overview

The Uruguayan American School (UAS) is a private college preparatory day school enrolling approximately 300 students in Nursery through Grade 12. It was established in 1958 by a group of Uruguayan and American citizens residing in Montevideo. The school is located on a three-hectare campus in the eastern Montevideo suburb of Carrasco. Facilities include an elementary and a secondary wing, a large library, computer labs, fully equipped science laboratories, a gymnasium and fitness center, outdoor sports fields, an auditorium, and a cafeteria. As a member of the South American Activities Conference (SAAC), UAS participates in athletic and fine arts tournaments with five other international schools in the conference. Twenty-eight (28) percent of students in the High School are United States citizens. Twenty-four (24) percent are Uruguayan citizens. Forty- eight (48) percent are third-country nationals from 16 countries. The average class size in academic courses is 9.

Governance

Board members are volunteers and receive no compensation for their service and are elected for a three-year term by the Uruguayan American School Civil Association. UAS Board of Governors’ main responsibilities are to define the school’s mission, vision and philosophy, address policy matters, develop long-range plans and provide sound financial management. The Board of Governors also hires the Director and delegates the day-to-day management of the school to the Director and the Director’s administrative team. In order to join the UAS Civil Association, members of the UAS community must request membership and be formally recognized by the Board of Governors. The Ordinary General Assembly for all active Civil Association members is held annually in October. At the assembly, Civil Association members approve the general assembly minutes and the school financial statements from the previous school year, elect Board of Governors members, and receive an update on the state of the school from the Board President and the Director.
