The Aga Khan Schools strive to create a harmonious balance between academic demands, sporting and cultural activities and community life.
The Aga Khan Lycée (AKL), Khorog, was established on the premises of the former School #3 (named after Kirov), a school with a distinguished history in Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (GBAO). The majority of students are from Khorog, and some from even more remote districts of GBAO, Tajikistan, and with a few students from other countries.
The Aga Khan Lycee, similar to Aga Khan Schools around the world, strives to create a harmonious balance between academic demands, sporting and cultural activities and community life. It challenges its students to be intellectually inquisitive and socially conscious. The Lycée believes that while what students know is important, the true measure of a student’s education is the ability to analyze what they do not know.
In the 2016-2017 academic year, over 1000 Grades 0-11 (6 year olds to 17 year olds) students were enrolled in the co-educational school.
The parent-teacher meetings, held six times annually, are attended regularly by up to 80% of the parents. Parents continue to show a keen interest in all Lycée matters especially student events, activities, the improvement of course standards and the services and resources available to students. Parents are invited to visit classes and to provide feedback on their observations.
