Egypt Curriculum

Egypt’s public education system is divided into three levels, with the basic education stage for children aged 4 to 14 consisting of two years in kindergarten, six years in primary school, and three years in preparatory school. The following stage is secondary school, which lasts for three years and is for students ages 15 to 17. Government-run schools offer free education at every level. In the public school system, Arabic is typically the language of instruction. However, some school curricula and subjects are taught in English.
