Meet our Principal

Kelly Buffurine

It is an honor to introduce myself as the principal of Middle School at AUS. I have been a member of the American United School community since 2016 and am excited to continue to grow and learn alongside our amazing students, teachers and staff. My career in education has taken me from the United States to Namibia, Mexico and now Kuwait. One of my greatest pleasures is being a global citizen and global learner. I look forward to building relationships with middle school students and the community and having a successful school year!
