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. 


As GISC is an IB World School offering the PYP (Primary Years Programme) and MYP (Middle Years Programme) and a candidate school for the DP (Diploma Programme), GISC empowers its students to take ownership of their learning and become well-rounded global citizens through its rigorous and comprehensive educational framework, igniting independent thinking, creativity, and a profound understanding of real-world challenges.

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).
