Hello, My children and I have been in Kuwait since June. I homeschool two of them, boys ages 14 and 11. I would be interested in getting the kids together with other kids. We are located in the Mahboula area. hope to hear from you soon.

I am also interested in homeschooling my son next year for Grade 4. Is it legal to homeschool in Kuwait? What will be the steps to follow?

homeschooling in Kuwait

Postby kimsywimsy » Sat Aug 04, 2007 3:45 pm

I will be moving to Kuwait in the middle of August. Our time there will be only four months. I am interested in finding other homeschoolers of 8-10 year old boys. We are American and my son is a lovely, interesting boy whose interests run to skateboarding, psp, swimming and travelling.
Thanks very much.

Homeschooling and Testing

Postby Jag_2499 » Sat Sep 15, 2007 5:53 am

I would like to homeschool my son-we will be in Kuwait in Nov-but what about testing? On his school schedule-they would have the IBST in Nov and a writing test in Mar. Can we administer the test ourselves?

Military bases can proctor tests, you could try asking the one closest to you.

Playdates

Postby Katybug » Sat Oct 06, 2007 1:47 am

Please PM or Email if you are in Kuwait homeschooling, my 8 year old boy would love some playtime at the science center or a local park :) There are some great places to take kids but he hasn't found a lot of socialization here as most of the children at the park beside us speak Arabic :)

Hi,
I am new to Kuwait and to homeschooling. I have a six year old son. My neighbor homeschools her kids also (5 and 7) and we were thinking about starting up a group. If anyone is still around and would be interested, let me know. We are in the Fahaheel/Mangaf area.
