The Aga Khan Primary School in Kampala aims to strike an equilibrium among the demands of academics, extracurricular activities, and community life.
Students at Aga Khan Primary School are pushed to be both socially aware and academically curious. The School holds that while a student’s knowledge is important, their ability to evaluate what they don’t know is a more accurate and practical indicator of their education.
The Aga Khan Primary School places a strong emphasis on an integrated approach to teaching and learning in which ideas from various subject areas are linked and integrated into a single theme to promote learning by exploration in a more organic, meaningful, and interconnected way and to reflect the interconnectedness of knowledge in the real world.
