School Excellence Model in Public Schools in the State of Kuwait: A Proposed Model

Sultan GH Aldaihani


This study was undertaken to investigate school excellence models and their applicability to education in the Arab world in general, and in Kuwait in particular. The researcher reviewed and analyzed the literature regarding excellence models and the role they can play in educational institutions. Based on this review, a school excellence model is proposed to improve the status and qualifications of teachers, establish systems of good governance at both the local and central levels, adopt a transformational leadership style, and encourage transparency among all stakeholders. Kuwaiti schools must conduct continuous evaluations to balance the expectations and demands of the local and global environments, students, and all stakeholders on one side with the actual resources that exist within the school environment on the other side. Achieving school excellence in Kuwait will require a culture that encourages creativity, innovation, and thinking outside the box.
