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)," commented one expat when asked about 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 in Salwa, Kuwait with kids at British School of Kuwait.

"I would insist upon speaking to an American principal...one who resides, was educated and was employed at a school in the United States. I would insist that my daughter was placed in an American teacher's classroom!! I would make sure the textbooks are United States textbooks in every subject! With a quality teacher and quality subject materials......well, the girls are wonderful, so your daughter(s) will enjoy their time at AAG," wrote an expat living in Salwa with children attending American Academy for Girls.
