Private school Fees in Kuwait- way too much????

I've been looking into private school fees and I wonder how much these schools charged when they first open. I can understand the exorbitant fees if the kids were receiving a Harvard education but we all know they aren't really what they seem. I really like how some label themselves as "non-profit" but still charge an arm and a leg.
 
Here is some information on school fees:
 

 The American Baccalaureate School

 American Creativity Academy

 American School of Kuwait

 American United School of Kuwait (previously American University School of Kuwait)

 New English School- Kuwait

The Universal American School

The newest school is American University School of Kuwait, if grade 4-5 is 5500 KD how much would high school be, 10,000KD?

  3. Yes, that's true. However, a majority of parents who send their children to these schools, have the fees paid by their employer.

  4. Oh how I wish I worked for one of those companies that paid for the fees instead I've paid schooling for 3 kids for 10 years.

  7. Actually in Kuwait prices are not as high as in South Korea or Japan...For KG 2 we paid 32,000 USD in Seoul. Japan - about 27,000 USD. So I decided to come back and stop complaining about life here :)

  8. We are moving now from the UK, where my kids each cost about 9 thousand pounds annually (I have three). I've just learned to accept if u take them to private schools, u pay.

  9. Yes but does the private education here compare favourably with the private education in the UK?

    1. It doesn't compare....when the kids take the exams only a couple will pass...and the costs of exams is 700 kd. The parents have to put them back in school for another year and once again pay for exams.
