About Us

Welcome to the Aga Khan Nursery and Primary School. Our aim is to provide our students with well-rounded education which allows children to discover and nurture their creativity and develop into independent critical thinkers with a love for lifelong learning.

The Aga Khan Nursery and Primary School offers an engaging, quality curriculum through the Pre-School Programme (ages 2-3) and the Primary Years Programme (PYP) Kindergarten 1 to Grade 6 (ages 3-12). The School is authorized by IB for the PYP, whose philosophy provides a framework for educating our students to meet the challenges of the 21st century and supporting their growth as productive, insightful, responsible and compassionate citizens in our global society. It focuses on developing independent, skilled learners through an inquiry-based approach that reflects a unique global perspective. Even though our curriculum is based on the IB-PYP, compatibility has been ensured with the National Curriculum of Tanzania and the Tanzanian culture. AKNPS occupies a spacious, well-maintained campus which includes facilities for indoor and outdoor sports, art, music and ICT.

Our school’s mission and philosophy are aligned with that of the IB programme by valuing education that goes beyond academic development. The IB PYP approach provides a framework for educating our students to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. Through the PYP, our students grow to become productive, insightful, responsible and compassionate citizens in our global society. The Primary Years Programme (PYP) at the AKNPS - through structured and purposeful inquiry - aims to develop students in the acquisition of knowledge and skills, the development of conceptual understanding, the ability to value and demonstrate positive attitudes, and the capability to take action directed by informed choices.

At AKNPS we strongly believe that education is a three-way partnership between Students, Teachers and Parents, each playing an equally important role.
