“Nothing compares to the community at El Alsson. Here I don’t feel I am working among colleagues, I feel I am working among family” – Kismet El Husseiny; ex Alsson student and currently a G3 Class Teacher
“Working at El Alsson is the best job I’ve ever had! After 5 years working here, I left to go back home to the UK. Three years later, however, I boomeranged back and am loving it as much as before. It feels like home. <3” – Sam Penny
“Egypt is a country that appeals to people who are not afraid to step out of their comfort zone and adapt to an ancient, exotic, and fascinating culture. The Egyptian people are welcoming of foreigners, and will go out of their way to help you.” – Russell Sanders
“This school and this city has become my home; the community, the students and the support here is heart warming. Cairo is full of life, culture and welcoming people – the school is a smaller scale of that. You will undoubtedly fall in love with El Alsson, the students and staff make it hard not too. I think it’s safe to say, after 5 years of being here, I definitely have!” – Jennifer Burnett; Assistant Head KS5
“On my first year teaching at El-Alsson, I found the staff to be very friendly, welcoming, and cooperative. I have been getting the appropriate support and guidance when needed, by my managers. In comparison to other schools I worked in, El-Alsson might lack some resources. For example, smart boards would be an add up to teachers’ teaching process. Also, extra workshops to be provided to the teachers would be of a great benefit for professional development.” – Dahlia Mostafa, Holder of a Master’s degree in Special and Inclusive Education, from the University of London, and BA in English Arts and Literature from Cairo University.
