Elementary School

Welcome to the Elementary Division and the Primary Years Program (PYP).  Academic achievement is our main goal where we focus on the whole child by nurturing individual talents and creating curious learners. Our student-centered approach creates an environment where every child feels accepted, supported, and valued. Each classroom has a community spirit where teachers and students learn together, work together, and have fun together.

The Elementary Division at AIS is a special place. Our well-trained diverse teaching staff use researched best practices to implement instruction. Reflection is an integral part of planning, which helps make decisions in the best interest of students. We believe that teachers lead with love, patience, and understanding.

We also believe learning should be inquiry based, meaningful and built on prior learning experiences year after year. When children are truly engaged in learning they are self-directed and motivated to strive for excellence every day. It’s important to us that our students are prepared to be thinkers, so they are productive global citizens. 

The relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, so we celebrate our parent and community partnerships. The Elementary School environment is congenial where courtesy and kindness prevail.

Educating students is a tremendous responsibility, and we are honored to teach every child at AIS-Kuwait.
