Welcome to Kuwait Bilingual School,
We are very pleased to welcome you and your child to the 2019-2020 academic year in the Middle and High School at Kuwait Bilingual School. We are excited to have our students in classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. We believe that the IB-MYP is an ideal programme to prepare children of today to become leaders of tomorrow.
Why the Middle Years Programme (MYP)?
Parents who want the best possible education for their children choose the MYP because it includes:
- rigorous learning objectives
- a student-centered approach to teaching
- international perspectives
- concern for the whole child
- sustained teaching and learning in more than one language
- a focus on learning how to learn
- the development of flexible thinking that prepares students to evaluate information critically and apply knowledge in complex, unfamiliar situations.
The MYP teaches tools for lifelong learning and fosters responsible attitudes that help students discover how to use what they learn to take principled action. MYP focuses on character education initiatives and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the students' achievement.
This is our second year as an officially authorized IB MYP School. I am glad to see the MYP positive impact on our students not only academically, but also in building their personalities and characters. Our students are able to exhibit the IB learner profile attributes and show learning skills. This was visible in the MYP Personal Project exhibition we had last year, and I am excited to see what our students are preparing this year!
I strongly believe that the steps we take by implementing the MYP today will help us shape our leaders of tomorrow. Kuwait Bilingual School aims to help young generations pave their own pathway.
I look forward to making this academic year another successful year.
