Lets Connect

we teach

UMA teachers exude joy, passion, and creativity in all that they do. We use our Mission as the light guiding all our decisions.

Consistent with our Mission, we use every opportunity including academics, social interactions, and emotional challenges to teach resilience and independence. Great educators allow children to experience failure, without letting them feel like failures. Those little set backs develop character and drive their will to succeed.

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to always try just one more time.”  Thomas Edison
