The majority of teachers live in Sheikh Zayed City, close to the school. This is in the Western Desert, the air is cleaner, the neighborhood is rapidly filling with new malls and restaurants. Other teachers live in town, in Mohandeseen and Zamalek. This obviously gives more of the feeling of being in Egypt, with greater access to entertainment and culture. The downside is the daily commute. The school provides bus transportation.
The school also provides a monthly housing allowance. Many of our single teachers share a two bedroom apartment; pooling the allowance makes it easy to find very good accommodations. The school uses real estate agents to help teachers find goo accommodations.
