Schools in Kuwait

There has been a rising number in the establishment of schools in Kuwait. With the initiative of the Kuwait government, numerous schools, colleges and universities have been established in the country.

The stepping stone was laid down by the constitutional amendment of 1962, which declared that education is the fundamental right of all the citizens, irrespective of their gender and class. This amendment and the further amendments made primary school education compulsory since 1965. The government of Kuwait further invested money in the establishment of private school infrastructure.

Presently, a promising figure of about 500,000 students are studying in various schools in Kuwait, colleges and universities. Kuwait Education also encompasses the private and prestigious international schools that have been sponsored by foreign countries.

Some of these schools are the British School of Kuwait, the American International School, the American Schools of Kuwait, Bayan Bilingual School and the French School.
