Aga Khan Schools Curriculum

Every Aga Khan School complies with local curriculum requirements, however AKES enriches its curricula by affiliating with rigorous national and international examination boards.

For example, schools in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Bangladesh offer international curricula including the British Cambridge International Education and International Baccalaureate programmes. In Pakistan, increasing numbers of AKES schools have affiliated with Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB), and are engaged in exams that focus on conceptual learning and the application of knowledge in real world situations.

Every school strives to create an environment that prioritises an approach to learning that is relevant to student’s future and current needs. Interactive education models encourage students to ask questions, pursue independent lines of inquiry and develop interest and expertise in a broad range of subjects.

Co-curricular subjects in the arts, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and sports further enrich the learning experience. Extra-curricular activities like after-school and student clubs and community service programmes, also play an important part in extending learning beyond the classroom. These programs equip students with essential skills that cannot be measured with a grade. Self-esteem, self-confidence, the importance of teamwork and cooperation are all qualities that are important in the development of ethical frameworks and dispositions to service that are part of the education of an AKES student.
