History[edit]

The school was first established in 1972. The current building in Giza, in proximity to the pyramids, opened in 1988. Kajima Company built the campus.[3]

As of March 1, 2006, 53 students were enrolled.[4]

Due to political unrest related to the Egyptian Revolution of 2011, during that month the school closed temporarily and most of the students left Egypt.[2] By July 2013 there were 33 students at the school. That month, it closed temporarily due to political unrest related to the 2013 Egyptian coup d'état.[5]
