KAS is a school that has a history of growth and change. Khartoum American School began way back in 1957 with a student population of 11 children who received instruction on  the veranda of a private home. Within a short time, KAS rented its own quarters and in 1966, when enrollment had grown to 77 pupils, the school moved to a new site on Street No. 29 in New Extension. During that year, the school welcomed 96 students of 21 different nationalities. The school existed on Street No. 29 for 18 years.

A larger school was then needed and Chevron Oil Company provided a generous grant to help with the construction of the new school. A Danish architect was hired to design and oversee the construction of the new facility, which was started in 1982. It was completed in 1984 and school has continued uninterrupted, with the exception of a temporary suspension in 1991 during the Gulf War crisis, and a 2 day closure following the events of September 11.  From its start with only 11 students KAS has grown to a student population of over 200 students from 35 different nations.

The school is growing every year, and at the moment we have 27 classrooms.  KAS is a  co-educational day school which includes program for grades Nursery through Grade 12. The majority of the international staff are qualified American teachers. All classroom teachers are certified, with an average of 15 years of teaching experience.
