Using the American curriculum-based AERO standards while aspiring to be a full International Baccalaureate program school (PYP, MYP, IBDP), we will have opened our early years, primary, and middle years programs through Grade 8 in 2022-23, adding upper grades in subsequent years with a projected enrolment of 1400 students.

Our full education, operations, administrative, and leadership team is now in place, ready to ensure that GISC provides a world-class educational experience for our students and families.

Our school is notable for its emphasis on inclusion and diversity, future-thinking technology skills, and most importantly, developing impactful global citizens with a mission to serve our world: Inspiring Leaders, Future Thinkers, Fearless Explorers, Diversity Ambassadors.

As a GEMS Education school, we believe there is a ‘Genius in Every Child’. We are nurturing an ecosystem and infrastructure to draw out potential and training educators by the best to be the best.

Our admissions for 2023-24 will open again this November with seats for students PreK through Grade 9 in September 2023, and we invite you to join both local and international families who aspire to a premier international education for their children.

I wish to welcome prospective parents and students to the new GEMS International School in New Cairo. As head of school, I understand that your choice of school will be one of the most important decisions you make as a parent of a young genius.

With the renowned GEMS network building its first-ever high-tech, purpose-built, environmentally conscious school in Egypt, the opportunities for the very best in education are at your fingertips. My team and I have been part of school leadership throughout the world, developing schools that rank among the very top in their home countries. And now we can bring the BEST to you! Join us as we ignite the passion for learning and leading at GEMS International School Cairo.

Our GISC promise to families and students encompasses a commitment to extraordinary, world-class academic results that prepare our students for top university admissions and successful careers. However, what we consider of even greater importance is our daily and fully internalized expectation of developing compassionate and knowledgeable global citizens whose individual lives will positively impact our community, our nation, and our world. Our staff, students and our families will engage joyfully within our school community to appreciate their culture and celebrate our sense of place.

While celebrating and understanding diversity through inclusion, we all benefit in understanding self and others. Character development and academic achievement are not only compatible, but at GISC, interdependent. We are embarking on a very special journey that will establish GISC as the flagship school in Egypt, and our reputation will quickly grow worldwide.

Young geniuses, committed families, expert and compassionate staff, along with passionate leadership, will ensure the recipe for success that will be GEMS International School Cairo.
