CAIRO, EGYPT (11 Jan, 2023) – McGraw Hill today announced that two prestigious institutions in Egypt, Rajac International School and OWN Heliopolis School, intend to expand their use of McGraw Hill’s state-of-the-art digital content for students in grades kindergarten through 12.

The new agreements expand existing engagements with the institutions, which already use McGraw Hill’s Inspire Science, Reveal Math, and Wonders reading programs with their students.

These multi-year agreements bring personalized learning experiences to the schools’ students through McGraw Hill’s digital learning platforms, including ConnectEd and Online Learning Platform (OLP).

Rajac International School strives to provide the best quality educational experience in order to upbring a generation of youth that is mentally, physically, and socially capable of meeting the challenges of a rapidly changing and highly demanding world. The signing ceremony for the agreement with Rajac International School included the presence of Shereen Kassem, School Principal, senior representatives from McGraw Hill and Modern English Bookshop, a key delivery partner for McGraw Hill in Egypt, who was instrumental in putting this deal together.

“We are honored to have been working with McGraw Hill for over three years,” said Shereen A. Kassem, American School Principal at Rajac International School. “We have been using their platforms on a daily basis for class activities, learning instruction, and assessment of students’ performance to enhance their skills and concepts. In addition, McGraw Hill’s professional development is strongly aligned with the 21st century learning skills and has benefitted us greatly in improving our teachers’ knowledge and learning styles.”

OWN Heliopolis School is dedicated to a student-centered program that promotes academic excellence through enriched, inter-disciplinary curriculum, ensuring that students become critical thinkers, active problem-solvers, interested readers, thorough researchers and creative writers. The agreement with OWN Heliopolis School was signed at a ceremony in the presence of Mr. Hany Sedrak, Chairman of OWN Heliopolis School, along with senior representatives from McGraw Hill and Modern English Bookshop.

The two organizations have decided to deepen their partnership with a multi-year agreement that brings McGraw Hill resources and the benefits of exemplary professional development to our teachers,” said Mark Sedrak, School Director at OWN Heliopolis School.

“Rajac International School and OWN Heliopolis School made bold moves in recent years, introducing digital content to their students in math, science and reading,” said Kareem Kirollos, Sales Director at Modern English Bookshop. “Several years into that project, their digital transformation has matured and paved the way for an expansion of their work with McGraw Hill. We are proud to have been part of this journey at both schools.”
