Elementary School

Welcome to the Elementary Division, the heart of the Primary Years Program (PYP) at AIS-Kuwait, where the pursuit of academic excellence takes center stage. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) school, we are dedicated to nurturing the intellectual growth of our students and fostering a passion for inquiry-based learning.  

Our well-trained diverse teaching staff uses 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.  

The Elementary Division inspires students to embrace the learner profile. We strongly believe in the comprehensive development of each child, recognizing and nurturing their distinct talents. Through our student-centered approach, we craft an educational environment where students value being principled and balanced. A tapestry of community spirit is woven, fostering collaboration, and nurturing a lifelong love for learning. 

Immersed in inquiry-based learning, our students embark on a captivating journey that seamlessly integrates the building blocks of knowledge, layer upon layer, year after year. With authentic learning experiences, they assume the role of self-directed students, motivated to strive for excellence. Our goal is to equip our students with the skills and mindset needed to become critical thinkers and compassionate global citizens, ever ready to make a profound impact on the world.  

We highly value the partnerships between families, the school, and the wider community. We celebrate the collaboration between parents and educators, as we recognize the vital role that these relationships play in the success of our students. The Elementary School environment is characterized by congeniality, where courtesy and kindness are upheld as essential values.  

We consider the education of our students as a tremendous responsibility, and we are deeply honored to have the opportunity to teach and guide every child at AIS-Kuwait. Together, we embark on an inspiring academic journey that ends with the PYP Exhibition; a research-based project based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Students are empowered to take action based on their passion to make a positive impact on the world around them.  

Welcome to the Elementary Division at AIS Kuwait, where excellence in education is our commitment.
