The American Baccalaureate School in Kuwait is a K-12 school offering a bilingual curriculum. It has separate but adjacent boy's and girl's campuses.


The facility is purposely built for separation of male and female students with separate entrances and exits for boys and girls. At ABS, the newly built 2,500 m2 gymnasium includes a heated indoor semi-olympic size swimming pool, and a 1,200 m2 area for basketball, football, volleyball, tennis, and handball. There are 4 separate changing rooms, shower areas, and offices throughout the facility.[citation needed]


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[citation needed], 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.[citation needed]
