School History

In October 1990 the Modern English School Cairo opened its doors with only 28 students enrolled. 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.

MES Cairo is a real international community where the current enrolment of 2076 students aged 3.2 to 18 from 30 nations study together in a purposeful way. Fully established, MES Cairo continues to develop with increased specialist teaching, a strong Learning Development Department and further exciting Secondary options.
