Since 2014 we have been and continue to be a Partnership School of The British Council, Egypt working co-operatively in order to bring the latest educational curricula, practices and qualifications to our students and teachers.
We are a British Council Attached Centre which means we are an official examination venue for the British Council, so our students do not need to leave the school to sit their official exams. Our facilities have been inspected and verified as acceptable for the invigilation of international examinations.

We are accredited to teach and provide International GCSE examinations for Pearson Edexcel.
We are a partner school within the project PASCH “Schools: Partners for the Future”, hosted by the Goethe-Institut, since we opened in 2014. Two MIS Students won a scholarship to Germany from the Goethe Institut in both 2015 & 2017 and to date all participating MIS students have achieved 100% success rate.

What is an accreditation?
An accreditation is an externally licensed validation process where a school is evaluated and monitored by ongoing external inspections, in which the school has to continually demonstrate consistent achievement of strict standards and criteria set by external and officially recognised organisations & award bodies.
Why are accreditations important?
Accreditations are important because they provide assurance that it has been officially determined and verified that our school meets and/or exceeds the required standards for providing quality international education in not only teaching, but management, resources, environment, welfare and also the care of our students.
