Best Schools in Karachi


Karachi is one of the largest cities of Pakistan, the metropolitan center and the economic hub of the country.

With so much on its shoulder, it can be quite difficult to decide which one is among  the best schools in Karachi.

With a school in each corner of a locality, best schools in Karachi are not many in number but they basically serve a very high standard of education and their names are below:-

Karachi Grammar School (K.G.S)

This institution is one of the oldest school and ranks at the top among the best schools in Karachi and South Asia with a history and a legacy.

If you are in a power position (if your decisions affect a number of people) then the chances are high, your kids will get an admission in this school.

About Author

I am a freelance writer, I enjoy researching and writing about my city. There are so many new ventures opening up in the city, which I believe need to be reviewed honestly for the sake of spreading awareness and information among the citizens. Since there is so much happening in the city, I like to write about the "Good Stuff." Besides writing my other pleasures are healthy cooking and traveling.


  1. Do you have information about karachi school offering north american or Canadian system other than Karachi American school…is there any school in defence be name defence American school ?

    • Kiran Kanwal on

      About Defence American School I am not aware of that. But there is a Karachi American School in Defence.

  2. Hi Kiran
    How’s origins school?
    Does it comes in top 10 school of khi n Pls guide me that links is good,origins is better or Froebels education centre?
    Hope u reply me Asap!

    • Hi Hina,
      As far as I know by sources is that Origins and Froebels both are very good schools and yes they also count in among the top schools in Karachi, since they are also producing very good students.
      But when it comes to me guiding you to select the best choice among Links, Froebels, or Origins I think only you can make the best decision, by surveying the schools, talking to the principal, scrutinizing their curriculum and extra curricular programs and most importantly the fee structure.
      So whatever best fits your criteria. Go for it!
      Hope this helps,

      • But according to my sources they tell me that Origins is very good when it comes to primary schooling but its not very good for higher schooling, however Froebels is very good for higher schooling and Links is too.

  3. Every site is copy pasting these schools in order. Pls mention schools in other part of the city by ranking and parents having their experiences.

    Its a sadaqa e jaria. Pls contribute.

  8. Hi,
    I heard there is a drug problem in Pakistani schools, esp the ones that offer “O” & “A” level curriculum.
    Is my recently acquired information true and how can a parent recognize which school is affected by this plague in order to avoid it.
    Another thing I want to ask is are the best schools here overrated or overpriced ?

  13. The School you mention British Overseas School (B.O.S) and Karachi American School (K.A.S) are the two worst school in Karachi, students in these schools are rug rats, and most misbehaved ‘WANNA BE”
