    Good school in Kuwait

    posted by  U M in Kuwait forum 

    Thank you for all your kind replies.
    Well our first language is English our second is Urdu (Pakistan). I was homeschooling my daughter for first grade because she wasn't happy at the public school here.
    However, since we are moving to an Arab country. I would like her to speak Arabic fluently and what better opportunity than a bilingual school. Total Arabic instruction would be difficult for her (2nd grade) but some people say that is the best way to learn.

    Yes Islamic Studies, tarbiyah and mahaul are very important to us so Mai Mai, I would love to take u up on your offer as a guide!
    Mr Khan, getting in touch with u would also be helpful.

    Assalamalaikum wa rahmatullah!

    It was so helpful to read your post!
    What is AIS? Have you heard of American Bilingual School? Can you tell me more about that school? Of all the schools, that seemed to be suiting my daughter the best.

    My husband will be working in Faihalheel but we haven't decided an area yet. The school will definitely finalize our location I guess.
    Once again, thank you for your warmth! I would love to meet u.

    AIS is American International School

    Now for ABS, its the richy rich school, its good for KG as their prices there are reasonable, my nephew was there. It's good school but again it's libral and u know the atmosphere for rich families; last names money matrials..etc, am not sure if u want ur child to be there with that style of mentality; here is the problem, they focus only on that aspect.

    If u will be in Fahaheel, which is VERY far from ABS and the city, u have a GREAT new school there; Resalah. The founder is the one who founded Rouaya billiangual and Bayan school, she is great lady and well known. I asked around yesterday and they told me about it that's it is there near fahaheel. Resalah School. Bayan and Rouaya schools are great.

    I will be there if u need any help, just let me know sis :-)

    Dear Mai Mai,

    I hope you can help on this.

    We are shortly am moving from Dubai to Kuwait. I was advised that some of the best british schools would either be Kuwait English School or The English School, Salmiya.

    Is this correct?

    If so, how much are the fees for G7, G5 and G3

    Regards,

    Tamer

    I'm British and have lived in Kuwait for over 10 years. I have 4 children who have gown up here. The English School Salmiya caters and has a preference for British children although all nationalities attend there. They require high standards of behaviour, insist on qualified teachers (PGCE or Degree in Education), have good facilities and a huge playground. The children are, in general, happy at the school.

    One drawback is that the school only caters for children up to the end of Year 8.After that time the children must move to a new school which means making new friends, finding their way around,etc. You'll find
    that many of the parents will send their children off to Boarding School rather than find another Kuwait school.

    KES caters for children through A level. My son was there until the end of Year 10. The school has high academic standards. This is good for those who can cope with this,but not all children can. Standards are continually assessed and children falling behind in their performance are sent regular letters home. Home school communication is quite good. Their facilities are reasonable, swimming pool, gym, etc. Music teaching is excellent and they have a flourishing orchestra and drama department.

    All in all, I'd be inclined to go for KES simply because your oldest child is Year 7 and close to the cutoff point for TES. You could move between the schools - TES is in Salmiya and KES in Salwa, but the traffic around TES is horrendous and very slow!!! There is a park with a restaurant across from KES should you need to wait between pickups. This is a recent innovation and a definite advantage to sitting in a car which can be extremely hot during the summer months.

    I hope this helps, Tamer. I think you'll be happy in Kuwait and feel free to ask any more questions.
