The Sultan Mohamed Shah Aga Khan School follows the board of Secondary Education, Karachi's prescribed curriculum but enriches the education with a variety of national and international educational practices.
The School curriculum strives to create a harmonious balance between academic demands, sporting and cultural activities and community life. It challenges its pupils to be intellectually inquisitive and socially conscious. The School believes that while what students know is important, the true measure of a student’s education is the ability to analyse what they do not know.
Developing critical thinking and analysis is therefore at the core of the School’s mission. The School also encourages students to respect and appreciate other people’s cultures, social structures, values and beliefs. Taken together, these objectives are designed to help equip children with the tools they will need to make their way in school, society and an increasingly interdependent world.
Education is no longer treated as individual subjects such as Chemistry, Mathematics, Zoology or Economics. Instead, similar subjects are clustered and redefined as a learning area bringing a holistic approach to education.
