In October 1990, 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. As the school population increased, improved facilities were built, culminating in the move to an impressive purpose-built campus in New Cairo. In a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, our students are encouraged to care for each other, seek challenge and be inspired.
