Welcome to the Elementary Department of the American Academy for Girls. It is our pleasure to have your daughter(s) in our school community. As we are now into our official second week of school, we appreciate your cooperation and flexibility during these uncertain times – and our aim is to make eLearning as productive as possible for our girls, and as stress-free as possible for you. It might take a little time at the beginning to get used to the program and its requirements, and make adjustments as needed, but will support you throughout until it all becomes a common routine.
AAG offers an instructional program based on an American-style curriculum, combined with Arabic and Islamic Studies, whose curriculum the Kuwait Ministry of Education requires.
The ES School runs from 1st to 4th Grade. English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, Arabic and Islamic Religion are all the subjects taught in the department. Specialty teachers instruct the students in Art and Music. Social-Emotional wellbeing is promoted by a weekly class led by our Guidance Counselor — and it is also a time to foster social interaction with the girls, so they can communicate, laugh and connect with each other – even if it’s through a computer screen, at this time.
AAG’s high quality and integrated Elementary-School program provides a safe, engaging, and nurturing environment, while promoting the creative, social-emotional, and intellectual development of your daughters. It is designed to create life-long learners who value personal development and cooperation with peers. Through various developmentally enriching activities that challenge and motivate, we will help to ensure that your daughter enjoys her learning environment and continues to flourish during her school years. We will help her build confidence, a sense of work ethic and responsibility. Additionally, eLearning is leading us to develop ourselves technologically and to empower more independence within our girls too.
We encourage a strong, cooperative relationship between teachers, students and parents; it builds a foundation in support of a learning community that extends from home to school. We welcome your input and feedback. Please make use of our Grade-Level Websites, designed to help students and parents access everything related to e-Learning in one place. Please refer to the Parent/Student Handbook for answers to any questions you may have regarding policies, procedures and rules. Teaches are available to help in any way possible; just contact them to set up a time or simply to ask a question.
Please do not hesitate to contact us via the ES mobile number: 96723878, if you have any questions or concerns.
