Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards 2017

On Wednesday 8th March 2017, three of our Sixth Formers received the Cambridge Award for outstanding exam results in June 2016 at the British Embassy, Cairo.

Habiba Fouad – Outstanding Learner Award for A2 Geography

Mira Shaker – Outstanding Learner Award for AS Geography

Kamal Aziz – Outstanding Learner Award for achieving the 3rd highest AS grades in Egypt and Cairo across 3 different subjects.

We are incredibly proud of our students, both past and present. Their commitment to their studies is exemplary and we applaud their hard work and focus throughout the year. Habiba, who we sorely miss, has gone on to study at the University of Amsterdam majoring in Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics. Mira and Kamal are currently working hard towards their A2 subjects and have both secured University offers in various countries across the world.

Another fantastic achievement for the Sixth Form at El Alsson – we are so very proud of you! 



American School Re-accredited

“The External Review Team recommends to the AdvancED Accreditation Commission that El Alsson School- Cairo earn the distinction of Accreditation by AdvancEd.”

El Alsson is very proud to be ranked amongst the very few schools in both Egypt and the States with a score of over 300 during the AdvancED accreditation visit. This wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for all our staff, students and parents; the main reason behind our success!
According to the External Review Team: “El Alsson is a caring safe and family based school dedicated to progress, energized by the notion of belonging, and committed to creating a collaborative culture of stakeholders that are dedicated to developing successful 21st century learners.”

A sincere thank you to the students, staff and parents for all of their support and efforts in making El Alsson what it is, and for this very successful re-accreditation visit! Congratulations Alsson!
