united school of panama
United School of Panama was born from a need to give academic continuity to the students who graduated from our early childhood education centers. Motivated by the positive comments regarding the high academic and developmental level of the students who leave our pre-schools, we set out to develop a project that encapsulates the teaching philosophy and our shared values.
Our goal became to offer a first-class education with modern facilities and open spaces for sports, located just minutes from the city center. Planning the project not only as educators, but also as parents, we strive to be a teaching and support center for families creating a positive impact in the community.
As the project matured, our team grew with important contributions from each new member highlighting our inclusive, international, entrepreneurial and professional spirit.
United School of Panama opened its doors in August 2021 with PK4, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade; progressively growing one grade per year until providing a complete PK4-12th grade education.
The founders of United School of Panama are a multidisciplinary team with international experience and proven track record in: education, construction, business administration, finance, project management and logistics, who are committed to the future of education.

AND SCHOOL CULTURE
Latin phrase meaning “Dare to know”; and also, loosely translated as “Dare to know things”, or even more loosely as “Dare to be wise”.
Originally used in the First Book of Letters (20 BC), by the Roman poet Horace, the phrase Sapere aude became associated with the Age of Enlightenment. The Enlightenment was a European cultural and intellectual movement (especially in France and England) that developed from the late seventeenth century until the beginning of the French Revolution.
Enlightenment thinkers held that human reason could combat ignorance, superstition, and tyranny to build a better world. The Enlightenment had a great influence on the economic, political, and social aspects of the time.
TO THE HOME OF THE GRIZZLIES
ALPHA is our school mascot!
He is strong, caring, courageous and a natural leader. Fun-loving, charismatic, and somewhat of a jokester, he reminds us all to work hard and play hard with enthusiasm and a “never give up” attitude.
ALPHA is a team player, compassionate and graceful in both victory and defeat. We win as a team. We learn as a team. He is fair, honest and attentive to the needs of others, like a loving older brother.
We are thrilled to have him as the embodiment of our school’s values and principles.
