Dasman Bilingual School, formerly known as Dasman Model School, opened its doors to 400 students in 1996 with a vision of bringing together the better of two worlds in order to create students who are equipped to deal with the rise of a global society. Over time, the school grew steadily and rapidly to now include seven buildings and close to 3000 students. Dasman is home to one of the largest private school campuses in Kuwait and we are proudly the ONLY school that promotes inclusiveness and integration between our mainstream and special needs students, creating an awareness much needed in today’s world.
Dasman has adopted the Common Core State Standards for Language Arts and Mathematics in the fervent hope of improving the standard of our academic program.
The Common Core State Standards provide clear and consistent learning goals to help prepare students for college, career, and life. The standards clearly demonstrate what students are expected to learn at each grade level, so that every parent and teacher can understand and support their learning.

ELearning has become an integral component of our curriculum, designed to equip our students with 21st century technological skills. Incorporation of IXL, Britannica, Education City and the Google classroom is gradually taking place across all grade levels, in addition to the availability of electives for our high school students.
Our pre-K and KG 1 classes are implementing the Oxford Show & Tell, which is excellent for vocabulary acquisition and oral communication in a bilingual setting.
The Special Needs Division provides multi-disciplinary support services to facilitate the academic, social and emotional development of students whilst the Vocational program equips students with a blend of academic and workforce competencies. They all use a modified curriculum, which is ably supported by specialist Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Psychologists and Speech Language Pathologists to maximize their success rate.
The following international accreditation bodies accredit DBS:
The school is also formally recognized by the Kuwait Ministry of Private Education, which has equalized the school’s diploma with Kuwait’s general secondary certificate.
The school uniform shop is located in the basement level of the D7 building. The purpose of the school uniform is to create a unique sense of identity amongst students and to make identification of different divisions easier.
