It was the summer of 1959; when twenty-two eager young students first entered the new Indian School Kuwait. The vision of nine dynamic Indian pioneers, the first Indian school in Kuwait began operations in the suburb of Nugra. The school started with an overarching belief by the founders that the school should serve as a centre of learning and a bastion for the Indian community in Kuwait. After five decades of existence, the school has managed to maintain its quality in offering students an all-encompassing, holistic and innovative educational experience.
What started from a small building in Nugra has grown to become four large campuses—three in Salmiya and one in Khaitan — with a collective strength of 8000 students and a teaching and support staff of 650. The school, once known as Indian School Kuwait (ISK), changed its name to Indian Community School Kuwait (ICSK), after the invasion, in 2001, to better reflect its origins as an Indian community endeavour. Today, this spirit of community service continues through the school’s Board of Trustees, who ensure it imparts excellence in all aspects of education.
A new chapter has now opened for ICSK in partnership with the owner Mr. Essa. They are proud to now pave the way towards providing an international curriculum through the establishment of the Innova International English School (IIES). IIES will operate with a curriculum for early years to IGCSE level. The school will cater to a new target audience with a larger community. This will include students and parents from both local and expatriate families. Continuing with the same motto for the last 60 years, the new school shall provide an environment that gives value for money with high quality education.
