A New Era

After over three decades of growth and progress, American International School in Egypt steps into the future with a new exceptional, state-of-the-art campus being built in Emaar’s Uptown Cairo.


Forging Ahead

Welcome to the latest edition of STRIDES, bringing you news and achievements from Esol Education and our schools around the world!

As 2022-2023 draws to a close, this issue of Strides concludes another exciting year of learning across the Esol Education schools. For many of our schools this academic year brought welcome relief, with full-fledged calendars packed with school activities, events, trips and more, marking a return to normalcy after two and a half years of the COVID-19 pandemic. Learning-as-usual after a long gap meant that some of our littlest learners performed together on stage for the first time, some embarked on their very first Week Without Walls experiences, students participated in memorable events such as Model UN, business competitions, leadership retreats, while families attended community fundraisers, walk-a-thons and wellbeing talks. Turn to “The Brief” where we celebrate all these amazing moments, big and small, from across our schools.
