"Students of today, leaders of tomorrow"

Kuwait Bilingual School (KBS) was established in September 1998 in Al Jahra City, Kuwait. Its foundation was a landmark in educational provision in the district, being the first school in the area to offer a coeducational, bilingual, private school education for people of the city.

Our mission is to develop intellectually mature and responsible learners who contribute positively to the community, showing commitment to both local and global issues.

We provide challenging educational experiences based on IB curriculum frameworks, to ensure that learners will acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to develop their full potential and to meet the demands of a rapidly changing and morally complex world.

In June 2013, we were authorized as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School at the primary level and were recently also authorized to deliver the middle years programme (May 2018). KBS received accreditation with the Middle States Association of America in the summer of 2016.

The school moved to a brand new campus, KBS2, in 2016. With these improved facilities we have spacious classrooms fitted with the latest technology, a purpose built theater, swimming pool, science labs and sports halls. This has enabled us to enhance our programmes, particularly in the areas of performing arts, science and sport. The facilities are also open to the wider community after school hours and at weekends, with extra curricular programmes and sports activities available for students, parents and the public.

In September 2018, we will open a Technology Innovation Center, which will initially include a robotics area and virtual reality suite, with rooms for expansion. We aim to ensure that our students remain on the "cutting edge" when it comes to technology!
