From the Director


We start this school year after completing the third goal of our strategic plan- graduating our 1st seniors in May, 2019. This milestone celebrated the vision of founders Sheikha Dana Nasser Al Sabah and Mr. Meshal Ali, when they first imagined AUS.

As we continue to grow and welcome new families and staff, we are mindful to take thoughtful actions in all our decisions. An emphasis on using student data to analyze educational offerings and plan meaningful instruction remain the primary goals for our amazing faculty and team of administrators.

AUS students gain a tremendous depth of knowledge, an ability to think critically and inclusively, and unique experiences in local and global citizenship that enable our graduates to step boldly and confidently forward into the future.

American United School is an intentionally diverse school community with over 35 nationalities represented in grades Pre-K - 12. Our success of obtaining a 10 year CIS/MSA Accreditation status is a testimony to our commitment to excellence. I invite you to visit us and experience the unique educational opportunity that is AUS Kuwait.

Looking forward to welcoming you to our campus.
