Air pollution is a big problem in Cairo in general. Morning levels in the winter could easily be in the 300-500 AQI (hazardous) level. The school monitored levels and kept kids in from recess and outdoor sports on bad air days. However, they still were outside changing classes, going to lunch, bus rides, etc. Our daughter had a mask she brought to school to wear outside when changing classes, as did a few other kids. During the 2018-2019 school year, they started addressing the issue more as parents started complaining. They were working on sealing rooms better, measuring inside levels, and were testing the difference air purifiers were making. When we left June 2019 nothing conclusive was decided, but hopefully progress is continuing. - Feb 2020


CAC is a great school with great teachers. The after school activities are good, too. I feel that it has been a good four years for my children despite a few issues which I have addressed above. - Feb 2017
