Over 50 Egyptian-Japanese Schools to Be Built Across Egypt

The current crop of Japanese schools can be found in 25 of Egypt’s 27 governorates, including the most recently-opened school in North Sinai's Arish.

The Ministry of Education has announced that they will increase the number of Egyptian-Japanese schools in Egypt from 48 to over 100.


Egyptian-Japanese schools have grabbed the attention of many since launching in 2017. These schools mainly focus on Egyptian curricula, but adopt a Japanese teaching ethos called Tokkatsu that encourages independent learning, with a focus on developing self-confidence and teamwork in classrooms of no more than 40 students.

The ministry also just finished renovating 37,000 schools nationwide, with plans to scale up construction and build even more during the next fiscal year.
