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 Cambridge International Education and International Baccalaureate programmes. In Pakistan, AKES has begun affiliating with Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB), developing exams that focus on conceptual learning and the application of knowledge in real world situations.

Every school strives to create an environment that prioritizes a student-centred approach to learning, designed to stimulate the joy of inquiry. 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, such as music, art and dance as well as STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) further enrich the learning experience. Extra-curricular activities like after-school sports, student clubs and community service programmes, play an important part in extending learning beyond the classroom. These programs equip students with essential skills that complement their academic learning. Self-esteem, self-confidence, the importance of teamwork and cooperation as well as sociability – these are all qualities that AKES believes play an important part in the development of the students’ ethical frameworks and dispositions to service.
