One of our readers emailed us a long story about American United School. The story is she registered her kids for the next new academic year at AUS. However, their admission policy require the kids to do assessments. All kids done their assessments and after days she received a call from the school that all of her kids are not require to enter.
The assessment cost 100KD and she asked to know the assessment scores and feedback. But the admission did not provide any information except they cannot enter the school and this our final decision. The next day she went to the school, they haven’t gave her any information. Except they said if you have a Wasta we can pass your kids to our school.
