The Aga Khan Lycée (AKL) in 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, with a few students from other countries.
The staff at Aga Khan Lycée, like other Aga Khan Schools around the world, strive to create a positive and productive environment that enables pupils to balance academic demands, sporting activities and cultural events as well as community life. Teachers challenge pupils to be intellectually inquisitive and socially conscious. The Lycée believes that it is essential for students to both acquire knowledge and develop their capacity for critical inquiry.
At the Lycée, parent-teacher meetings are held six times annually and are attended regularly by parents. Parents continue to show a keen interest in all Lycée matters, including student events, activities, the improvement of curriculum standards as well as the services and resources available to students. Parents are invited to audit classes and to provide feedback on what they observe.
