There is no doubt that education in Egypt is taking solid strides in order to come in line with international standards. We’re learning that education is much more than assessments and grades, but also about providing the right tools and resources for students to get them ready for their lives, and to be of value to themselves and the society they live in. While parents are looking at how they can facilitate the process for their children and give them the best opportunities to achieve their full potential, a reason for them to rejoice just introduced itself. This is where STEM Education in Egypt comes in.
IVY International Schools will open its doors to students for the 2021/2022 school year. If you’re wondering as a parent why this might be the right decision for your child, we’ve got you covered. IVY is Egypt’s first international school offering world-class STEM-focused education and they’re doing so in partnership with the leading USA Harmony Schools.
STEM is a learning approach that is coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in a context that makes connections between school, community, work, and global enterprise. Using these disciplines in an interdisciplinary and applied approach guarantees that students are equipped with the necessary skill set to overcome real-life challenges, unlike the normal approach where students are mostly just memorizing things they probably won’t ever have to use.
What STEM adds to the table is project-based learning with a data-driven intervention system accompanied by international exposure and exchange programs. As the first STEM-focused international school in Egypt, IVY Schools will lead a new educational wave by introducing this practical approach to the market. The school created a clear-cut choice for parents that other educational institutions should consider following. It’s exciting to look forward to the results of this new approach. Parents who are interested in enrolling their kids can visit IVY Schools’ website here, and pay a visit to the school out on the Ring Road, near the Katameya Shooting Club in Cairo.
