Modern English School Cairo was established in 1990 with just 26 students; today the school population stands at 1967 students. MES Cairo has gained a plethora of awards, memberships and accreditations. It is fully accredited by MSA (Middle States Association) and NCA-AdvancED, and certified as an IBO World School.Members of ECIS, CIS, NESA and BSME, MES Cairo is a multi-national co-educational English medium, British Curriculum school that caters for students from Foundation Stage One to Secondary (Year/Grade 12), leading to Cambridge IGCSE and Edexcel Examination Boards GCSEs examinations, A/S and A Levels. The addition in September 2000 of an American High School section from Grade 7 leading to the American High School Diploma and AP qualifications, and the introduction of the International Baccalauareate Diploma Programme (IBDP) from 2006, gives students a broader choice. MES Cairo is large enough to offer students a choice of an American or British curriculum from Year 7/Grade 7. Students may apply to study IB DP in Years 11 and 12. Arabic and Religious Studies are taught throughout the school. British Secondary Foundation (Key Stage 3) studies are condensed into Years 7 and 8. Examination courses are accelerated and students take eight IGCSE/GCSE examinations at the end of Year 10. Students then have the option to take A/S and A level examinations prior to further education.
Our well-resourced Foundation Stage One provides an excellent foundation for the child's education focusing on Early Years goals. The students then progress with a curriculum based on the National Curriculum of England, building on the skills, knowledge and understanding already gained. Primary children study a curriculum similar to that followed in a good progressive British school, with the addition of Arabic, French and Religious Studies. All policies continue to be revised in the light of recent reports to ensure that they are both relevant to the children and at the same time deliver the requirements of the British National Curriculum. Children are taught by using the best of both modern and well tried and tested teaching techniques, and great importance is laid on the creation and use of a stimulating environment within the school. Having the expertise of specialist French, PE, Music and ICT and LDD teachers further strengthens our Primary School and when students have completed their Primary education, they are well prepared for the further challenges that the Secondary School will bring.
The school is located on an impressive 33,500m2 landscaped campus in New Cairo with a Primary department designed to retain a family atmosphere, with large primary pods and added creative areas, networked computer suites, science laboratories, home making rooms, music suites with rehearsal facilities, and media centres. A 400-seat theatre, and three multi-purpose halls complement the Secondary faculty suites, large interrelated art studios, music suites, two drama studios, design technology suite, ICT networked suite, nine science laboratories and a dedicated sixth form common room. The sports complex contains volleyball, basketball courts, two swimming pools, full-size varsity football pitch, athletics track, gymnasium, and a dance studio.
MES Cairo is the only foreign school to be awarded the ICT Naacemark for quality. For further details visit our website: www.mescairo.com
