We also provide social- emotional support, while enforcing all the necessary Health and Safety Guidelines initiated by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and Ministry of Education (MOE) Kuwait.  

In addition, the Clinic team facilitates all the preventive health services for students required by the MOH and MOE, including annual health screening, vaccination programs, and running health awareness programs and CPR courses for staff. 

Counseling Services

 

The mission of the UAS Counseling Department is to help support the personal, social, emotional, and academic development of our students so that they become productive citizens and lifelong learners.

Curriculum Development

Curriculum Coordinators help facilitate and collaborate with administrators and teachers to create high-quality professional development opportunities for teachers.

During the school year, the coordinators develop UAS curriculum plans and evaluate its textbooks and software programs. Specific content area standards are compared to United States National Standards and International Standards then reviewed and updated accordingly.

Based on teachers’ needs, the coordinators create and help tailor instructional materials, support implementation of new materials in the classroom, and mentor or train educators. They also partner alongside teachers as instructional coaches to increase student achievement.

Academic Software Coordinators 

Academic Software Coordinators responsibility is to manage the PlusPortals package, which is the official communication tool for the UAS Community.

Our office provides technical software support to students and parents in a variety of methods which may include phone calls, e-mails and remotely. We attempt to diagnose and resolve problems reported in a timely manner and work simultaneously with the International Software Support team to assure providing the best educational service.

We are aligned with the school goal, as UAS believes that a true education lies in a life-long willingness to learn and adapt in the midst of a constantly changing world. Therefore, our team will be working to continually improving the service provided, especially with all these challenges we are facing worldwide with the Covid-19 pandemic and E-Learning.
