Established in Karachi in 1978, The City School is today one of the largest private school networks across the globe.
Having more than 500 schools with over 150,000 students, we continue to expand our reach in other countries including United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Philippines, Oman, and Saudi Arabia, to meet the demands for quality education as well as to ensure a strong global presence.
At The City School, we genuinely believe in educating ‘the whole child’ so we provide our students with every opportunity to discover and build upon their strengths. We also expect them to face up to the challenges of an economically globalized and socially changing world – one in which they will have to take their place as independent, responsible citizens.
Our commitment to providing consistently high-quality, accessible education underpins everything we do. We support and encourage high academic achievement, but we also recognize that individual students have different learning needs.
The City School’s motto is ‘I Am – To Learn’ because we understand that learning is limitless and there is always room to acquire more knowledge. Socrates encapsulates our motto perfectly. He said, “To say ‘I know’ is to close one’s mind to knowledge”. We aim to develop each one of our students into true learners – individuals who always seek to broaden their perspective and face life’s challenges head-on with courage and conviction.
For us, education is a pursuit that goes far beyond academics. While we aim to help our students excel in the course they are studying, we also hope to instill in them a thirst for learning throughout their lives. At The City School, our teachers, students, and parents work together to realize this goal.
Mr.Ahmed Nabil Alrefaey
