Word from the Principal

I am delighted to have the opportunity to welcome you to the Aga Khan High School, Nairobi website. We hope to give you a flavour of the school and all that it offers our children.

Aga Khan High School, Nairobi is a private co-educational, multicultural day secondary school. It is part of a group of schools that are managed by the Aga Khan Education Service, Kenya. The Aga Khan school has a long established history of preparing their students for the challenges of university and life beyond a formal education.

I have always strongly believed that having the opportunity to educate other people’s children is a rare privilege that brings with it a responsibility to provide the best all round education that prepares our students for the challenges of an ever-changing world. Aga Khan High School, Nairobi sets very exacting standards and the expectations of our students is purposefully high.

Our students are taught to believe in themselves, be inquisitive, robust and to be aspiring. We praise high-achievers in any aspect of their life, whether it is in the classroom or on the sports field. Aga Khan High School, Nairobi is purposefully small as we value community. We are a genuine multi-faith and multi-racial school where the students respect each other and value the differences that contribute to our unique society.

I hope you will take the time to visit the school, so that you can see first-hand why we have a reputation as one of the most beautiful and well equipped schools in East Africa. I am confident that you will sense our commitment to providing a rigorous approach to learning and a sensitive and caring provision of services. We want to encourage our young men and women to grow in depth and think beyond themselves and begin their development to becoming hard working and honourable members of our society.
