American University of Kuwait is opening their own school as early as September 2013 and they decided to call it the most confusing name ever, American University School of Kuwait. Students will be taught using tablets, so books are digital. No need for a heavy bag that weighs half the weight of a student.
- Pre-K through Grade 5 will open in the Fall of 2013
- Middle school for Grades 6-8 will open for the 2014-2015 academic year
- High school for grades 9-12 will be available to students will open soon after that
From what I have read, the place looks very promising
“Activities will include sports, computer/tablet applications classes, dance, music, water sports in the school’s Olympic size pool, and rock climbing on the newly built climbing wall.
The school will eventually showcase an in-house video production lab that will provide television studio broadcasts within the school. Courses in robotics, Auto CAD, computer art, and digital photography, as well as drama and music classes, will also be offered at AUS.“
