Parent's Review of American International School in Kuwait in
Kuwait City, Kuwait
What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)
American International School in Kuwait
In what town or city is this school located?
How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)
What grade levels are represented at this school?
KG 1 - 12
How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)
Personal transport (i.e. car with driver)
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Poor facilities ... very little interest on schools part to improve (very what I've observed) ... Extra curricular sports and clubs for younger children on Mondays after school (for a fee)
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?
There is nothing done to help the children transition ... not a concern for the school since majority of students aren't truly international but are host country or regional long term Kuwait residents
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
No parent teacher organization ... no social activities for parents through the school
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Don't. If moving to Kuwait is in any way optional, reconsider. This school situation is not unique to Kuwait. The international schools do not provide any sort of solid educational foundation.
