From the Director
Welcome to American United School.
If you are looking for the best educational experience for your student in Kuwait thanks for considering AUS. Whether you are a parent, student, community member or potential newcomer to Kuwait we hope you find the information you need on our new website. As you navigate, you will discover that we have a very dynamic school offering outstanding educational opportunities for students Pre-KG through Grade 11.
Recognizing the importance of the development of the whole person, the intellect, the body and the spirit our mission and vision seek to combine the traditional with the modern (21st century skills). Our goal is to inspire a love for learning, establish a sense of self-worth for themselves and others, plus provide the skills needed to pursue further knowledge throughout life.
Building on our definition of “what makes a Global Citizen” we are striving towards an understanding for our students that with ‘rights’ comes ‘responsibilities’ for others. Our multinational families and staff aspire to create a microcosm of the world we want our students to inherit. The strength and vitality of our School is the diversity of cultural backgrounds, talents, life experiences, and personalities of our students and faculty. Students thrive in this lively mix of cultures, traditions, and ideas.
I invite you to visit our campus for an information session, a tour or a special event so that you can witness first-hand what makes AUS…A Better Choice!
