Danah Universal School of Kuwait is a unique bilingual school in Kuwait for boys and girls of all nationalities. Everything we do is designed to help your child achieve their absolute best academically as well as developing confidence and a wider understanding of the world around them – enabling each student to go on and take their place as a successful ‘global citizen’. This is reflected in our mission, guiding statements and our vision.

Best of International and American Learning

DUSK offers two rigorous programs of learning; the Common Core integrated with the most rigorous US state standards (AERO). DUSK students get the best of international and American education to prepare them to live, learn and work in our increasingly globalized world. The curricula is concept-based, building on children’s natural curiosity through formal content mixed with a broad range of associated ‘real-world’ experiences. This creates a solid platform for information and concepts which students will build on while at DUSK and for the rest of their lives.

American Education Reaches Out (AERO) Standards

DUSK aligns the American Education Reaches Out (AERO) Standards with the Common Core Plus standards to ensure that students receive the best of American and international education. The AERO project is supported by the U.S. State Department’s Office of Overseas Schools and the Overseas Schools Advisory Council to assist schools in developing and implementing American standards-based school curricula. AERO provides a framework for curriculum consistency from Kindergarten to Grade 12 and for stability of curriculum in overseas schools. AERO’s curriculum and resources are in alignment with research based trends in the development of curriculum worldwide, and in particular with standards-based efforts in the U.S.

The AERO Curriculum Framework connects the process strands, which highlight ways of acquiring and using content knowledge, with the content standards, which outline the big concepts, to develop a coherent understanding. The relationship between Process and Content Standards is critical as students will not develop proficient understanding if either is taught in isolation. The AERO project’s primary goal is to develop a framework of voluntary academic standards appropriate for American schools overseas. The AERO Standards used the Council for Basic Education’s Standards for Excellence in Education as the base. Standards for Excellence in Education is a condensed, edited version of the U.S. national standards, so there is a strong relationship between the U.S. national standards and AERO.
