A school of the Enko Education network
Enko Education is a fast-growing network of African international schools, increasing access to the world’s best universities for learners across Africa.
Enko Education has developed an innovative model. Our programmes lead to globally recognized and sought after qualifications. We are able to offer those at a fraction of the cost charged by other international schools in Africa. Furthermore, Enko learners are supported in their higher education applications through our university guidance programme. It supports them in selecting the right universities and then securing both admission and financing for their studies. We offer an outstanding learning experience striving to educate our learners with Africa at heart and the world in mind.
Enko Education’s model is showing impressive results with learners joining top universities like Yale University (USA), Sciences Po (Fr), the University of Toronto (Canada) and many more.
With 12 schools across Africa, Enko Education aims to open 30 more schools in at least 20 African countries over the next five years. Several international financing institutions, including Proparco, I & P, Oiko Credit and LiquidAfrica, support Enko Education’s ambition.
Welcome message from the head of the school
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Prospective Families,
It is with great delight that I welcome you to the website of Enko La Gaieté International School, the first school among the Enko Education network of schools.
We are proud to be one of the few leading schools in Cameroon and the rest of Central Africa offering quality international education from grades 7 to 13. As a day school, we are passionate about grooming the next generation of individuals that will shape the future.
Our teaching and learning is guided by the Cambridge International Examinations curriculums and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme curriculum. As we aim to prepare learners for studies in the best universities in the world; we see a combination of Cambridge Lower Secondary and Cambridge Upper Secondary as a strong foundation for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). The IBDP is held in highest regard by top universities in the world.
The actualization of our mission is measured by the successes of our present and former students. You hear our voices in top international summer programmes and in the hearts of the campuses of universities of Toronto, SciencesPo, Yale, Ottawa, ALU, Hult, and many other great universities in the world. When our students graduate, they join a growing international network of high achievers and considerate global citizens.
At Enko La Gaieté International School, we are aware of the difficult process of choosing the right school for your child. Beyond perusing our website for the information you may need, I invite you and your child to visit our school to observe how lessons are delivered, take part in the open and respectful nature of teachers-students relationships, meet the programme coordinators, and have a friendly chat with me.
Come and join a school that puts students at the centre of teaching and learning.
