Message from the Director

The Union School (USH) provides an enriched, accredited American program in a safe and nurturing environment. We strive to empower all our students to become successful lifelong learners who are creative, engaged, empathetic, and productive global citizens. This is our mission that we strive daily to achieve in every aspect of the school.

This vibrant community focuses on a multi-faceted approach to education. Close student and faculty relationships create an environment of mutual respect and trust. Our teachers are exceptional educators who demonstrate passionate engagement with the subjects they teach, challenging and supporting their students and inspiring them to achieve their highest aspirations. Our core values of respect, honesty, empathy, fairness, self discipline, perseverance and responsibility, guide our actions and promote a culture of building the character of our students. Paired with our core values, access to technology, education in music and the humanities, physical education, welcoming classroom spaces, and an updated library all emphasize that both academic and personal growth are at the core of the Union School’s approach to education.  Ultimately, we prepare our students for successful on-going learning in universities and success in their professional and personal pursuits.

Whether you are a student, parent, or staff member, you are a member of the USH community. We invite you to visit our campus for an up-close view of our daily interactions and activities. Ours is a welcoming campus and our strength lies upon the commitment of mutual respect demonstrated by parents, faculty, staff and students in all aspects of our endeavors.

Thank you for your interest, and I invite you to come to see for yourselves what Union School Haiti is all about!

Message from the Elementary School Principal

Welcome to the Union School! We hope that you will find this website is helpful in learning about our school community; a community where good character is of importance. Our children are learning to become responsible citizens who practice the Panther Pride attitude of respect, responsibility, empathy, and friendship.

Our faculty members demonstrate true commitment to the social, emotional and academic well being of our students. Helping children become life-long learners is a goal toward which we continually strive by instilling a strong desire to learn in our students. We are dedicated to providing quality education in a safe and positive learning environment for all of our students.

Our community is best defined by the relationship that exists between home and school.  It is that mutual trust between our parents and teachers that allows us to work closely to ensure we are doing what is best for our children.

Our bimonthly school newsletter is a great way to keep in touch with events happening at the school. You can find a copy of our school newsletter on our school website.

I would like to thank our teachers, aides, custodians, PTA, Board of Trustees and fellow administrators for all of their hard work in preparing for this new school year.  Because of their efforts, we met our targeted date, despite our catastrophic earthquake, for the opening day of school.

At USH we believe that all children are capable of success-no exceptions! Go Panthers!
