International schools in Egypt

Search for the best international schools in Egypt; you can find a list of selected schools at the bottom of this page. Use the search filters to select only girls' or boys' schools, prep schools, senior schools or sixth forms; or you can search for schools that offer a particular curriculum, such as the International Baccalaureate, the UK national curriculum, a US-style model or the International Primary Curriculum. 

The Nile valley has been a cradle of civilisation since ancient times and today Egypt has the largest population in the Middle East and North Africa. A wide array of private international schools centred on Cairo and Alexandria cater for expatriates and Egyptian families.

There are schools following the British, American, French and German education systems, and 23 IB World Schools, including 18 authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Two schools, Ecole Oasis Internationale and Green Land Pre Vert International School, are authorised to teach three stages of the IB curriculum. 

Most IB schools are English-medium but Ecole Oasis is French-medium and Green Land Pre Vert International School teaches in French and English, while New Vision International School Giza teaches in Arabic and English and Rahn Schulen Kairo has bilingual instruction in German and English. Many schools offer IB and British or American qualifications. 

A total of nine schools in Egypt attained IB World School status in 2017. Egyptian International School, Leaders International College, Nile International College and Egyptian International School in El Marag were authorised to offer the Primary Years Programme. 

At secondary level, Narmer American College, Deutsche Schule Hurghada – Red Sea, Neue Deutsche Schule Alexandria, Rahn Schulen Kairo and The International School of Elite Education gained authorisation to offer the IB Diploma. 

The Council of International Schools has nine members in Egypt and the British Schools in the Middle East has eight. The BSME group is currently implementing an accreditation process across all its member schools. In 2016, British independent school Malvern College opened a newly-built branch campus in Cairo. 

Education is compulsory from age six to 14 in Egypt. In the public sector, children attend primary school for six years and preparatory school for three years, while secondary schools teach for three years. The two-term school year begins in September and ends in June.

There are two types of government school, Arabic Schools, which teach the Egyptian national curriculum in Arabic, and Experimental Language Schools, which teach science, maths and IT in English and social studies in Arabic, plus a foreign language at preparatory level.  

In 2014, the net enrolment rate was 98 per cent at primary school and 82 per cent for secondary school, while gross enrolment in tertiary education reached 36 per cent of the age group in 2015.
