The Kuwait American School prepares students for college and life by inspiring achievement, integrity, confidence, and compassion in an academic community dedicated to nurturing mind, body, and soul. We seek to educate the whole child towards the highest level of human consciousness.

The concept of the student friendly school based on values was created by its Director, Mrs. Wajeeha Al Habib in the Spring of 1999. After adaptation of the buildings, the school first opened its doors in September 1999 with 108 students. By September 2000, a new building had been constructed to accommodate a growing school population.

Our school is known for its pioneering approach to values based learning. KAS is the first school in the Gulf that has adapted a Living Values approach as well as a unique Etiquette program.

The school contributed to Education for All in 2000 and, in the same year, was invited to offer its 33 quality based learning indicators to UNESCO as a blueprint for early childhood education.

In recent years, its innovative approach has been widely recognized in Kuwait and its noble goal is fully supported by the Minister of Education. The school is particularly interested in a holistic approach to education and embraces the changes to learning brought about by the advances in emotional intelligence and learning styles. The school is a learning school and seeks to harness human potential to the highest levels of consciousness. The school believes in action research to support its goals. The school also enjoys very active links with KACE – The Kuwait American Centre of Education. The school established the Kuwait Values Institute in 2004.

KAS is growing into its next phase of development with established plans to grow into High School.

The school enjoys the support of the Kuwait Community and regularly shares its expertise at exhibitions and at professional development courses.


Curriculum

Kindergarten Curriculum
The KG curriculum is centered on thematic units. These units will involve the children in various learning experiences in all of the subject areas.

The basic skills of reading, writing, speaking, math, science, art, music, Arabic/religion and physical education are taught through an integrated curriculum approach. The children will be immersed in language each and everyday. They will also be encouraged to use and further develop their language skills through shared reading experiences, story dictations, journal writing (kg 2), story time, and center time.

We use meaningful learning experiences with real objects through a hands-on activity approach. Teachers and Assistants serve as facilitators to learning.

The teachers in KG inspire questioning observation and experiencing in all the subject areas. The focus is on the process involved in each skill rather than the produced product.
