To bring diversity and vigour in learning experiences, the school has a twofold strategy. First, the syllabi prescribed by the Boards are enriched; and second, learning is made interesting and exciting with the help of innovative and creative strategies. Classroom sessions are student-centred with a focus on interactive teaching that includes discussions, case studies and research projects.
School is offering three disciplines Pre-Medical, Pre-Engineering and Commerce. The curriculum is divided into several areas which are Commerce, Languages, Mathematics, Sciences and Social Sciences.
This area deals with Physics, Chemistry, Zoology and Botany. The aim is to stimulate interest in sciences by providing new perspectives through integration of various branches of science and their application.
Efforts are put in to improve the quality of teaching through enriched texts, inquiry approach of learning and effective use of laboratory apparatus. Knowledge of theory is blended with practical implementation to bridge gaps between concept and application.
Courses are enriched with the help of reference books, websites and articles from science journals. Students are taken on educational field trips to industries, hospitals and research laboratories to enhance their understanding of the subject by witnessing the real world application of the concepts.
This area which includes English and Urdu offers various opportunities to students for language proficiency. It encourages them to utilize their creative skills and improve their expressions. Students are provided with additional readings and research assignments, and are encouraged to work on presentations to enhance their communication skills. Students are also motivated to read fiction, poetry and other genres of literature.
Mathematics equips students with a powerful set of tools to understand and change perceptions. This helps them create and discover new domains of learning. Students' mathematical curiosity is further enhanced by its applications, which are interesting enough to motivate them to explore new dimensions of mathematics.
A practical approach of teaching is outlined for the courses like Accounting, Banking, POC, Commercial Geography, Economics and Statistics to make the topics interesting and stimulating. Through study and discussions on different official reports, case studies and reference materials, students are helped in developing skills that make them independent learners.

This comprises Pakistan Studies, PrISM (Personal, Social & Moral Development a life skills programme) and Islamiat. Together with IT and pure Science subjects, the role of Social Sciences cannot be ignored. Social sciences enable the individuals to see different subjects in true perspective. It provides students with the ability to critically think about global and social issues.
The curriculum is enriched with additional articles of various magazines and journals and a map-based study of Pakistan and the world. As Islam focuses on education and development of human beings, students are provided with opportunities to experience the relevance of these beliefs with their practices in real life through visits to social organizations and institutions.
PrISM focuses on the Personal (Pr), Intellectual (I), Social (S) and Moral (M) development of students. It also develops students' capabilities in reflecting critically on moral and social issues related to their lives. It further enhances the skills for decision making, develops self-confidence, teaches how to take charge of their own lives and works effectively as a proactive member of the society.
PrISM includes two models of teaching, i.e. Inclusive and Exclusive. In Inclusive model, the aspects of student development are integrated with the existing national curriculum, while Exclusive model deals with specially designed sessions. In these focused sessions, articles and extracts on prevailing issues are shared and discussed for general awareness. Also, sessions are held to discuss national and international politics, global issues and current affairs.
