Embassy of Pakistan Cairo has maintained a cherished tradition of Pakistan Missions Abroad to provide affordable education facilities to its diasporas. Pakistan International School started functioning in Cairo, in 1982, under the supervision and guidance of the Ambassador of Pakistan. The school primarily sought to cater to the needs of children of the Pakistani community living in Cairo. However, in order to maintain the optimal teacher-student ratio in every class, the school opened its doors to the children of other expatriates. Their response was overwhelming. The PISC was thus able to gain the name and fame of an international school.
The school is run under the auspices of the Embassy of Pakistan. It is supervised by a Board of Governors, which is chaired by the Ambassador of Pakistan to Egypt. Every effort is made to select Members of the Board from different walks of life, to benefit from their experiences and ideas. Preference is given to the community but parent representatives are also welcomed.
The school offers international curriculum of Cambridge Primary, Secondary and IGCSE, AS, A levels and Edexcel (London University) IGCSE for all students. PISC has the status of a private international school and is not tied to the Egyptian education system. The language of instruction is English.
PISC has enjoyed consistent examination success in all systems and at all levels and we are proud of being one of the top academic schools in Cairo as our students have gained entry to leading universities around the world.
Zamalek campus of PISC is equipped with modern educational tools such as; a tartan surfaced multi-sports court, the state-of- the-art science and computer laboratories and an enticing library. The classrooms are also equipped with smart white-boards and projectors.
The curricular and extra-curricular activities offered by the school are aimed at making the child’s learning experience positive and productive. Every effort is therefore made to harness the potential talent and social interests of the children. Hence, the school seeks to integrate academic pursuit with extra-curricular activities, which include sports, music, art and outdoor excursions to develop the personalities and abilities of our students.
