The Modern Education School (MES) was established in 1997 by El-Shark Company, Chairman of Board Mr. Amr Hassan Elmaayirgy. The school is a co-educational school that serves grades Pre-Kindergarten through Secondary. There are three different educational systems in the school: the National Division, the British Division and the American Division. The British Division is from years 1 to 12, the American Division, which was first established in September 2001 serves Pre-K through Grade 12.

Our Vision is to build self confident, creative leaders who communicate effectively, think critically and accept others, while maintaining a strong Egyptian identity.


To provide a high quality comprehensive educational system that enables students to function as a member of a group and as a productive member of the society.
We encourage the individual freedom of the students within the boundaries of our cultural traditions and beliefs.

We encourage positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and staff so that students learn with passion, act with integrity and serve with respect.
We teach students that they are responsible for their own actions and will be held accountable for their choices.

We create awareness of duties, responsibilities and rights.
We build characters capable of facing challenges with strong decision making skills.

We encourage consistent positive contribution through team work.
We encourage the use of technology and scientific thinking in development and planning.

Extracurricular activities play an important role to enhance the students’ soft skills, general interests and cultural awareness.


The Modern Education American School received an overwhelmingly positive overall assessment in its third periodic accreditation from AdvancED in May 2012. The school received the highest rating “Highly Functional” in 5 out of 7 standards,and for the other two standards the school was rated as “Operational” which is the second best rating.

These high ratings are awarded to very few schools worldwide. The qualifying team was impressed with the school’s high quality of education, as well as its strong culture.

It is worth mentioning that MES received its first AdvanceED accreditation (known as CITA at that time) in August 2001 and Again in May 2007 as part of the customary accreditation review process every 5 years.


Founder PTA members have always been of great support to MES. We involve and consult them in major decisions. We urge interested parents to step up and become active PTA members. Any support you give to the school is in fact a support to your kids.

PTA members are the ambassadors of the school; the link between parents and the school, the school and the community at large. PTA elections are held during the first month of the academic year, meetings are held regularly throughout the year.
