Parent's Review of Kuwait National English School in Hawalli, Kuwait

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

Kuwait National English School

In what town or city is this school located?

Hawalli

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

Allegedly British

What grade levels are represented at this school?

All grades - my child was in year six

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

Driven by servants

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

Probably the worst school facilities that one could ever imagine. My child was promised all sorts of educational opportunities.

All she got was a third rate education from teachers who were extremely experienced educational bullies.

Uniforms can only be obtained from the school at fantastically high prices - good up to date text books seem to be unknown

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?

I placed my child in the primary school but before the end one term removed my child owing to the poor quality of education that my child was receiving.

The Year Six teacher turned out to be one of the most foul mouthed women I've ever come across. The head of the primary school was equally unqualified and ran the school by fear. My child came home every day in tears.

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

Non existent.

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

Do not even consider the school - if you wish your child to have a reasonable education.
