From our Head of School

Ms. Catherine Spencer

What a joy it is for us to welcome all of you, new and old, to school year 2023-24 at GEMS International School Cairo.

In our second full year of operation, we have doubled our enrollment to nearly 650 students!

With this growth comes continued refinement of school logistics and we very much appreciate your patience and flexibility as we review daily the best ways to ensure our students and families are safe and secure. This year our students represent an increasingly diverse group from nearly twenty different nationalities, many recently relocating to Cairo from their home countries. 


GISC is now an Authorized School for the PYP, MYP, and a Candidate School* for the DP Programme. GISC is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that GISC believes is important for our students.  

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org
