Parent's Review of Rawd al-Saleheen in Hawalli, Kuwait

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Rawd al-Saleheen

In what town or city is this school located?

Hawalli

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

Bilngual (American English/ Arabic) Islamic-oriented

What grade levels are represented at this school?

KG1-12

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Car, although some take school buses (vans).

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

There aren't many extracurricular activities in the afternoons, as is typical in Kuwaiti schools, because the main meal with the family is lunch at around 3 p.m., and students are normally home then. The school does particpate in football (soccer) games with other schools, as well as Quran and other Islamic studies competitions.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

The students are mostly Kuwaitis, with some other Arabs and a few Western children whose parents are teachers (and even they typically have one Arab parent). Repatriation is not an issue.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Parents get to know each other through meetings at the school, attending activities there, etc. Typically, families have several children in the school, who stay there for years - often from KG until graduation, so they get to know each other. But there is no parent-teacher organization. (I think these questions are - understandably - geared towards expats.)

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

The school has gained international accredidation from CITA. It is is a good school for someone who wants their children to have a strong background in English and Arabic, with an Islamic perspective. For example, boys and girls are separated after KG, there are extra Quran classes instead of music classes, and the staff dresses modestly, including hijab for women. This is not a school for an expat who wants a Western environment; they should look at the American or British schools, the French school or Bayan Bilingual School.

The school has grown quickly and has gotten crowded; they need to find a bigger location soon - unfortunately, it's difficult without going farther out from the city.

The previous review is from a disgruntled former employee, not a parent. A review of the working environment is different from a review of the school from a parent/student point of view.
