What are the schools in Salwa like?
"I would try to avoid AAG. The current superintendent believes the school is a business and that the 'customer is always right'. In this case, the customer is the student and the parent. Thus, the academic integrity of the school has been completely shattered as parents just need to complain to get their grades changed. Students who complain also have any discipline consequences removed and thus have no consequences. Obviously, this has led to several severe discipline problems, especially in the high school (which set fires in the school this year)," remarked another parent with kids at American Academy for Girls in Salwa.
"Try KES , TES if you have a primary aged child or NES if looking for a British school. Cannot comment about American schools," explained one expat living in Salwa, Kuwait.
