Meet our Principal

Dr. Craig Ross

It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I begin my second year at AUS. As an educational leader, I bring an unyielding commitment to children, educators, and parents. I believe that students must be inspired and guided to innovate, create, and think on a higher level. I believe that creativity and innovation are the engine of achievement and that a student’s interests and talents must help drive the curriculum if they are to be truly engaged in their learning. I believe that few things are more important to our children’s future than the quality of the education they receive. As such, I am passionately committed to pursuing and developing innovative educational programs of quality and excellence.
