Teaching abroad offers the experience of a lifetime. Educators have the opportunity to broaden their skillsets, advance their careers, adopt global outlooks, and enjoy life overseas. However, some teachers who entertain the idea of taking their careers abroad struggle with the idea of relocating to an unfamiliar school - it’s scary, it’s a big decision, and sometimes there are unknown details that teachers don’t find out until they’re already off the plane and committed to a position abroad. Sometimes these details even include what specific school a teacher will be working at!

If you’re an American licensed teacher who’s been hesitant to finally apply and commit to teaching abroad, then maybe seeing the facilities at the American United School of Kuwait (AUSK) will change your mind. Unlike some of Teach Away’s other postings, our AUSK postings let you know exactly what school they’re for so teachers can research the school and see the facilities before they apply or head abroad. 

AUSK’s facilities are brand new, having only recently opened their doors in 2013. Currently, AUSK covers education programs from early childhood through middle school (grade 9), but there are plans to expand the school to include education for students through high school grades as well. AUSK is a technology focused school seeking innovative American educators to teach American curricula.

From impressive learning spaces to world-class sporting facilities, AUSK has it all. Check out these photos from the American United School of Kuwait’s website:
