    The one that refers to itself as THE not the one with the 49.8m swimming pool

    Cheesiness aside - is THE school any good? DO you know anyone who works there or has any experience as a parent? If it is best avoided, which Egyptian schools would you recommend?

    Thanks.

    Clues about good schools:
    1) They tend to have actual photographs of the school on the website, not architect's paintings
    2) The contact address isn't usually name / title @ publicprovider.com, it tends to be something like director@nameofschool.org
    3) They don't offer huge discounts to try and poach students from other schools
    Try reading the school prospectus. It is quite humourous;
    "we implement the British National Curriculum for England and Wales" and as for the "quotes" from the students...
    Would you get a work permit if you got a job here? Something that you would have to ask, especially with the new labour laws looming
