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?

School is primarily for Kuwaitis, however, my daughter is Canadian and is in the KG program. She loves it... wonderful teachers and dedicated staff. I am very pleased with the quality of the program.

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

Good. Very active Parent Association.

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

Be cautious, it isn't really well suited for expat children, but that isn't to say the quality of the education is poor, it just caters to a local ESL population 99% Kuwaiti nationals. It is religiously more conservative that other schools in Q8. PSAT and SAT scores continue to rise. College prep curriculum. 100% graduate and attend post-secondary schools. Graduates have been accepted to many US/Canadian and European universities.
