I advise anyone considering teaching at Futures American Schools in Nasr City and/or Cairo, Egypt to beware of this school! This school, in no stretch of the imagination is anything like an "American School"! My wife (PhD) and I (M.S.) just resigned and left FAS after their multiple breaches of contract, paycheck shortage issues, work visa problems, health insurance problems, being robbed by students at the school, lack of student discipline and the never-ending broken promises (ad nauseum). Anyone who would like to know more about our experiences at FAS and/or Cairo please write me before you consider a contract with them.

I was wondering if the superintendant is still the same. I believe it was Michael something.....if you said it I would remeber instantly. I talked with him on the phone once and he sounded pleasant. I am shocked to hear this with FAS. This was one of the places that I hoped to secure employment. What else was wrong with them?

The original Director of FAS who interviewed and hired us was Michael Williams but he quit before we arrived in Egypt. After he quit, the school divided his responsibilities between three teachers (with no administration experience) who worked there although they were given no real authority. Basically, the school has no one that can make decisions except the owner and he, inconveniently, always seems to be out of the country (at least that's the excuse they always give).
