The first and best lesson I learnt when I began my career was that "Everyone deserves a good education". Many families and potential students apply to MES Cairo every year and everyone is shown equal and fair consideration. It would not be possible, unfortunately, to accept everyone who applies. We make every attempt to ensure that the application procedures are as pleasant an experience and as an efficient a process as possible. To that end, it has become necessary to place clear and transparent priorities with regards to application considerations. We have provided them for you below in the hope that it clarifies our procedures further. Our best advice is to apply as early as possible.  Thank you for considering joining our MES Cairo family. Along with our truly excellent Student Affairs and Admission Office staff, I look forward to personally welcoming you!

Application Process

First consideration is given to those students who already have siblings registered in the school. Second consideration is given to students who apply from schools which offer similar academic programmes or follow a similar academic syllabus. Third consideration is given to students with the most academic ability keeping in mind space availability and the date when the application was first processed. All other considerations may or may not play a major role in the admission process depending on the individual case.
