Welcome to the International Academy of Kuwait
Welcome to IAK. Our school has a strong tradition of teaching in English and many of our students can communicate well in the spoken and the written language.
We serve a multi-cultural and multi-national student body, with an emphasis on academic learning based on the UK National Curriculum and Cambridge IGCSE examinations. In Year 12 our students follow the Cambridge international A s level course in preparation for university entrance. Our student population of over 1500 comprises mainly local ex-patriate Arab families as well as Kuwaiti nationals.
It is our ultimate aim to provide an environment for our students to take chances with their learning and development. IAK provides a balanced education with a strong academic focus. We aim to develop the learning of the whole child, not only to succeed academically, but also physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.
IAK welcomes and encourages students from a diverse background of nationalities and religions to apply. Anybody who knows IAK will know that there is a commitment from our students, staff and the wider community, to values such as tolerance, compassion, honesty, trust and most of all, respect for one another.
