EXTRA-CURRICULAR

ACTIVITIES

At United School of Panama, we believe that our body, heart, and mind must work in harmony to develop well rounded human beings.  Learning never stops, it goes beyond the classroom.

For this reason, we offer a variety of Extra-Curricular Activities starting at the beginning of the school year to help our students maintain a healthy lifestyle, find their passion, and develop their abilities.

Team sports and group activities help children foster camaraderie and develop lasting friendships from shared experiences.  We also believe these activities promote diversity and inclusion which are core principles we embrace at USP.

We offer the following activities Monday – Thursday from 3:30 PM to 4:45 PM.  After a day full of learning and activities students may go home and enjoy family time.

LANGUAGES

Learning multiple languages opens our children’s minds, gives them better opportunities and access to more resources throughout their lives.

That is why we compliment our trilingual education with two other languages that they can learn additionally in extracurricular activities:

– French
– Portuguese

MUSIC

Musical learning in childhood improves reading, language, mathematics, and academic performance skills in general, also enhancing other areas of our children’s human development.

Based on this, we have music classes within our activities in a program called Intro to music.

MARTIAL

ARTS

Martial Arts are a great sport for children that helps to develop resistance and elasticity, allowing them to set goals and persevere in their achievement. Also, this sport helps them integrate and make friends, teaches them discipline, and encourages self-control.
