The Aga Khan School, Garden 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.
The Educational Approach
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.
The Aga Khan School, Garden was founded by His Highness the Aga Khan on 9 September 1962.
The School is part of the Aga Khan Education Services (AKES). It has a long tradition of leadership in educational development. The foundations of the present system were laid by Sir Sultan Mohamed Shah, Aga Khan III, under whose guidance over 200 schools were established during the first half of the 20th century, the first of them in 1905 in Zanzibar, Gwadur in Pakistan and Mundra in India. Since the creation of Aga Khan Education Service companies in the 1970s, the schools have been centrally administered and managed.
AKES currently operates more than 300 schools and advanced educational programmes that provide quality pre-school, primary, secondary and higher secondary education services to more than 54,000 students in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Kenya, Kyrgyz Republic, Uganda, Tanzania and Tajikistan. Schools are also envisaged, or under development, in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Madagascar, Mali, Mozambique and Syria.
The School has a student population of 1672. English is the medium of instruction and the School teaches
- Early Childhood Education and Development (ECED): ECED I to ECED IV (Classes Prep 1 to Class II)
- Junior Section Classes III to VII
- Senior Section Classes VIII to X
Student-centred teaching and learning
Aga Khan Schools offer student-centred teaching and learning environment designed to stimulate the joy of inquiry. Students are encouraged to ask questions and participate in co-curricular activities to develop their self-esteem, confidence, teamwork, self-discipline and sociability. Following the National Curriculum, all Aga Khan Schools focus on providing the students with a holistic educational experience that will polish their personalities and hone their skills, preparing them to shoulder their responsibilities as valuable members of their communities.
Teaching with technologies
Imparting knowledge using the tools of the day, whether modern or traditional, has been our forte. To remain at the cutting edge of education in the developing world, Aga Khan Schools have sought, wherever possible, to bring to their students the most up-to-date systems that can be applied and managed by its schools. In all our schools, knowing-how is made easier by teaching with technologies.
Educating the Educator
Recognising how essential competent and qualified human resources are to quality schools, all Aga Khan Schools focus on enhancing skills of their teachers through field-based training, curriculum development and research. Focus on professional development has led to linkages with many academic institutions and founding of the International Academic Partnership comprising AKES worldwide; Phillips Academy, USA; Schule Salem, Germany and the Aga Khan University’s Institute for Educational Development.
We strive to enable our students to be self-reliant and confident in their abilities while aiming to be leaders in the fields of their choice.
Parent Teacher Meetings
Every semester, the School faculty keep parents posted of their child’s school performance. Class teachers update parents of their child’s discipline, attendance and school participation. The School functions in a friendly environment that supports and encourages an on-going partnership between the School, parents and management.
The School regularly seeks parental co-operation and assistance during Parent-Teacher Meetings promoting a closer relationship between home and the school. Parents assist by: reviewing the School’s progress through Parent Development Meetings (PDMs); effectively communicating between the School and parents.
The School’s orientation programmes give parents and students an opportunity to interact, give feedback and exchange ideas with School management. We encourage parents to be involved in the social and emotional development of their child. Our focus lies in developing parents as critical partners, actively contributing to the School's effectiveness.
