Good school in Kuwait

Posted in Kuwait forum

Salam.

We are moving to Kuwait from Seattle and were wondering what would be a good school for our daughters which would offer Islamic Studies and Arabic as well as a good American curriculum?
I was looking at American Bilingual School, American Academy for Girls, Bayan, Takamul among the few names i found on the internet.

Please, if anyone has any insights and ideas, let us know!

    Hello, we have our boy in the American School of Kuwait and we are very happy with our selection. And he love his school, he adapted very well since the first day.
    You can check on the internet but the best way is taht when you arrive to Kuwait you go and visit each school taht you chose on the internet and check the curriculum, the facilities, the teachers, kids, and so.
    Good luck!

    Salam

    I am a Kuwaiti lady and would like to help u in this.

    If u want a good islamic and english or billangual school, takamul is great, Rouayah, Rawd alsalheen, Al-Hayat (my nephews and neices r there) depending on which city u will stay in.

    AAG and AIS r so "libral" schools and also Bayan, have no relation when it comes to islamic, they only do it bcoz they have to, not what u r looking for. Even their enviornment is not healthy. If ur focus is ONLY on academic but not culture and personality and beleives of ur doughters then go to AIS

    Plz contact me when u r here I can take u or guid u in that. I took a frnd once for dfrnt schools (she is from Bangladish and lives in UK).

    U r welcome to my country :-)

    Yes, it is shades of blue and in Hawalli. I do believe there are two blue schools in Hawalli for when I try to get a taxi they have taken me to the wrong one. :-)

    Wasalam,

    I would say Mai Mai is very correct, it might also depend on which would be your first language and second language as well. As in some schools the medium of instruction might be totally in English or Arabic, with a secondary language as well.

    Any way if you need any other help do let us know. btw i do have a Seattle # here in Kuwait.

    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 :-)
