About School


Egyptian British International School (EBIS) was founded in September 2007, a subsidiary branch from the Egyptian Language School, and has continued to grow year by year. As an educational establishment, we are dedicated to each of our pupils, providing a long- life love of learning. We instill skills and ethics into our pupils, encouraging them to create an awareness of their surroundings and become worthy contributors to society.

  • Values and Beliefs
  • As an institution we aim to provide a system of high quality education, allowing each of our pupils to develop academically and socially. We encourage learners to be independent, developing an understanding of the local, national and international environment. A happy school environment is a productive one, with staff and pupils showing consideration for one another, building on an atmosphere of positive moral values and encouraging self-awareness and creativity in the rapidly changing world we live in.
  • In today’s ever changing environment it is of the upmost importance that pupils can relate learning from school to real life situations. They must have the willingness and freedom to rise to all challenges and continually pursue knowledge and exchange ideas.
  • EBIS provides a secure, well-resourced, stimulating and purposeful learning, striving to nourish each child as a unique individual, instilling independence and ambition in the creation of responsible and confident global citizens.
  • We encourage pupils to fulfill their potential yet, continually be challenged. They should value their role as a member of the school community, and foster cooperation and mutual respect in the home-school partnership. In order to do this, pupils should be able to think critically. A successful leader will have developed communicational and organizational skills; they will take responsibility for their own decisions while being a cooperative and trustworthy team player. EBIS aims that each pupil should be self-disciplined and motivated for any situation that arises, they should show perseverance and automatically self-reflect to evaluate the outcome.

Positive pastoral care at EBIS is capitalized through:
