Established in 1995, the Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, Karachi (AKHSS) is situated in a 26-acre campus next to the Sultan Muhammad Shah Aga Khan School and the Aga Khan University-Institute for Educational Development.

The Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, KarachiSince its inception, the school has strived to provide quality education to its students. It is the flagship institution of the network with outstanding academic, co-curricular and sports performances. AKHSS, K, has received the Best College Award for four consecutive years since 1999. The awards for 2003 onwards are yet to be announced by the Board of Intermediate Education, Karachi.

The foundations of the present education system were laid by Sir Sultan Mohamed Shah Aga Khan III, who established over 200 schools during the 20th century, the first in 1905 in Zanzibar and Gwadar, followed by schools in Dar es Salaam in 1906 and in Mundra, in India, in 1907.

The Aga Khan Higher Secondary School 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.

Our Credo
Schools of Choice: Adding Value to Children's Learning
AKES, P schools are 'intelligent' schools in which there are positive attitudes, aptitudes and multi-tudes that work towards developing multiple intelligence, multi-disciplines and integrated skills of all those who learn and work within them. As successful learning organizations, everyone involved in the school learns individually and collectively in an environment conducive to attain the aims of the school, namely effective teaching and learning for students' achievement.
