Modern English School Cairo is not just an "Outstanding" school; it is a 'home away from home' for all who work, study and spend most of the hours of the day here learning and contributing to the lives of others. When you walk through our gates, turn the pages of our publications or browse through our social media, I hope you will sense the familial atmosphere that is evident in our daily lives. In my long years of experience, generations of students have come through these doors and graduated and grown to become young men and women of whom I am extremely proud. Many of them are now parents themselves and have entrusted us with their own children. This is the legacy which carries us through the years and which will lead us to the future. I hope you enjoy your experience with us and feel free to learn more about our ever-growing family.
The school began with the pioneering vision of a group of educators led by Mr. Nabeel Dajani and Mrs. Sawsan Dajani. Its reputation and standing in the community grew quickly and as the school population increased, improved facilities were built, culminating in a recent move to an impressive state-of-the-art campus in New Cairo. In a friendly and welcoming atmosphere the students are encouraged to care for one another and for the world around them.
