Principal’s Message

kg-principal-ms-sarah-borisly-web Dear Nursery and KG Parents,

It’s spring and your children, our students, are really beginning to blossom into inquisitive learners! We have had a year rich with new experiences, language acquisition and friendships, and we aren’t finished yet!  This last quarter of the year is when everything begins to come together and great strides are continuously made.  KG2 students are eager to express their thoughts in writing and use their emergent reading skills; KG1 students have refined their fine-motor skills and are proud when they can write their names independently or count past 20 andNursery students enjoy the socialization that school offers and have begun to make friendships that could last a lifetime. These are milestone moments in your child’s life and we, the entire staff of the Early Childhood Department, are proud to share them with you.

This year UAS is celebrating the 40th Anniversary of being a cornerstone of education in Kuwait.Your child and family are part of a caring community at UAS, a family that embraces the best in family values and American education.  At UAS we take the education, تربية   of your child very seriously and strive to fulfill its Arabic meaning, ‘to raise a child’ by being conscious of their needs, socially, emotionally, physically and academically. In the West we often say, “It takes a village to raise a child”, dear parents, we are your village and your child will always benefit when we all work together.

Whether your child is staying in Kindergarten next year, or moving on to Elementary, we have truly enjoyed being a part of their educational journey!


Mrs. Sarah Borisly M.Ed.
