AIA was founded by Rania and Nesreen El Sabban with a very clear vision about education. Aware of the lack of choice of good quality international education available in Alexandria and devotees of the holistic, inquiry driven philosophy of The International Baccalaureate, they set about creating an educational opportunity for the children of Alexandria, that would be unrivalled in Egypt. AIA is a flourishing school that is about to embark on the process of acquiring full IB status. From humble beginnings, AIA is about to relocate from the centre of the bustling second city of Egypt to a purpose-built campus on its outskirts. The journey to becoming the best IB World School in the whole of North Africa is well under way.
