Curriculum

SFS is a highly respected school located in Cairo, Egypt. We take pride in providing the next generation of Egyptians with a quality education that will bring them to new levels no matter what life has in store for them. An app education can provide a child with the knowledge and confidence to make wise choices and we take that very seriously. To ensure this level of education we have carefully planned out our common core curriculum, which of course is up to par with California standards as well as being approved and accredited in the United States. This curriculum is widely acknowledged throughout the world and has been reviewed and approved by Egypt’s Ministry of Education.

We believe that in order to have a great educational experience a child also needs to be in a positive learning environment to let this knowledge sink in, as well as building vital social skills. We at SFS are proud to foster a warm, safe and inviting environment for our students and teachers. We hope that you might consider us when making a choice about the future of your children.s
