Download the Special Needs Profile (Spring 2023 Special Needs Uruguay, Montevideo) for this school to learn more about their capability to support students with exceptionalities.

Uruguayan American School (UAS) offers three accredited programs of study: U.S. high school diploma, Uruguayan high school diploma, and IB diploma. The New England Association of Schools and Colleges fully accredited the school, and it is the only Uruguayan school to maintain the U.S. academic calendar. UAS has approximately 330 students from nursery through grade 12. The school size allows students to participate in many after-school activities, clubs, and sports while receiving individual academic attention because of the commitment to maintaining small class sizes. The sports offered are basketball, soccer, swimming, and volleyball; the teams participate in regional tournaments.

This is intended to provide general information. Prospective users of the schools may wish to inquire further of A/OPR/OS or contact the school directly for more specific and up-to-the-minute information. Information and statistics are current as of March 2023 and provided by the school.

NOTE: School situations can change quickly, particularly as schools face cutbacks to learning support programs due to the pandemic, unrest, and economic uncertainty. For the most current information, work with the REO and school. Information in this document was collected by the Department of State’s Office of Overseas Schools directly from the school in spring 2023 and shows the availability of services rather than an assessment of the quality of the services. The profile is intended as a jumping off point for a conversation with the REO and school to understand the best fit for your child. Definitions may vary school to school.
