He has since worked as a teacher and administrator in New Haven, Houston, the Bronx, Boston, Columbus, Los Angeles, and rural New Mexico. In 2010, Mr. Kim El-Mallawany founded Columbus International High School (now Columbus North International School) as the first new high school in the Columbus City Schools district in over a decade, establishing a leading program in the state's capital in terms of world languages, global studies, and partnerships with local organizations and postsecondary institutions. Mr. Kim El-Mallawany is also a graduate of Harvard University's Graduate School of Education, where he earned his Master's in School Leadership. He is thrilled to have come full circle to once again serve the city that raised him, and looks forward to building on the legacy built by the Campus International community over the last several years.
