The American Baccalaureate School (formally known as American Bilingual School) is a private, fully accredited Pre-K–12 American School in Abraq Khaitan, Kuwait, offering a curriculum based on American teaching standards.
The ABS campus is a 25,000 square foot facility with over 100 classrooms, 7 buildings, campus-wide internet connectivity, Smart boards in every classroom, 7 computer labs, 2 full-service cafeterias, specialist rooms for Culinary Arts, Drama and Art. ABS has separate but adjacent boy's and girl's campuses. Classrooms are co-ed thru grade 5. Students are segregated in different buildings from Middle School onwards. ABS offers an oversized gymnasium that was purposely built for separation of male and female students with separate entrances and exits for boys and girls. It contains an indoor semi-olympic sized swimming pool and a 1,200 m2 area for basketball, football, volleyball, tennis, and handball.
The ABS library is fully automated with the Follett system; all transactions are handled electronically. The library is a place which ABS students go to borrow books, learn library skills, obtain access to information from a variety of sources, perform research, hear read-aloud stories, talk with the librarian about books, or just enjoy a quiet place to read.
