The Kuwait high school is located walking distance away from the Sana'a city Centre in Yemen's Capital not far from the country's main museums and libraries.
Yet despite this seemingly advantageous position, the school has faced regular electricity and water cuts and had been damaged by vandalism after the mass protests against Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh's regime erupted.
The students of the school have also been personally affected by the crisis. Most of the graduates struggled with their university entrance exams, which started on June 25th. Analysts say the condition of the town's educational facilities, many of which were damaged in the protests, was partly to blame.
However, despite all this, Mr. Akhmat, the headmaster of Kuwait school, said he was encouraged by the number of students taking the exams.
"The attendance rate was about 98% in Kuwait high school; 675 students took the exam in school on time, and only 23 were absent."
There are currently more than 500,000 students taking part in the high school and university entrance exams in Yemen, where life goes on despite the turmoil.
