Dover American International School opened in the academic year 2010/2011. It is accredited by AdvancED.
In partnership with the school community, our intent is to provide eligible students, primarily from the Middle East and living in the Greater Cairo area, with a rigorous and challenging American and international preparatory education. Our school has developed a very conducive learning environment that is founded on respect, responsibility and results.
DAIS offers a comprehensive Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 academic program taught in English by highly qualifiedNorth American and Egyptian teachers. Our curriculum follows American Common Core national standards and is designed to prepare students for entry into highly competitive universities. Inquiry and problem solving approaches to curriculum implementation are utilized. It is our belief that active learners need to develop critical thinking skills to have ongoing success. Life is rapidly evolving. Our students will graduate with the vision, knowledge and skills to lead and succeed in their ever changing world.
Our challenging academic program also provides many opportunities outside of the classroom. Students at all levels participate in extra-curricular activities. In addition to a number of sports, sample activities include Student Council, peer tutoring and Model United Nations (MUN). Our program embraces the fine arts and music. Both are profiled in our annual shows, art exhibits and choirs. We aim to educate the whole child.
During every step of our students' academic journey, we strive to provide the finest American educational instruction while cultivating a passion for learning, a capacity for critical thinking and a sense of civic responsibility. A tradition of educational excellence drives our future.
