These views were expressed by speaker of Northern Areas Legislative Assembly, Malik Miskeen, while speaking the other day at the annual prize distribution and parent’s day at the Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, Gilgit. “Aga Khan Higher Secondary School is a pride worthy center of learning”, he further said, “because I have learnt that its students have been able to compete at national and international levels, winning laurels for the region and the country”.

  4. AKHSS really is the best educational institute in the whole of Gilgit Balitistan. I mean I don’t say it because I am a former student of AKHSS but because I can see it from my very eyes. Its competitive environment and co-cirrcular activities prepare its students for their future. AKHSS definitely is the best and I am proud to call my self an AKHSSian!!!!!!!

  5. No doubt where ever we have ismaili institutions of any kind are far distinct to others, this is all because of decipline, punctual in respective field work and sincerity..
    well, we have AKHH and Aga Khan Academy in the north ,the explaination is far to reach, these instutions have boost our professional life amazingly.despite all ! i have noticed the performance of the students of that great isntitution ,for last one decade is less pleasing as well as displeasing, the aggregate productivity is not maintained , the expectation from these institutions students are very high ,because of the professional environment. we should have the leading professionals in various field of work,i admit there is great achievers but very few, i wish all those new comers and students that they must give some massive break throughs in madecine,engineering,education and maintain the reputations and great name of our institutions.
    best of luck

  7. AKHSS is a marvellous institution which has been playing a vital role in nurturing the young talent in a way that if continued with the same pace will bring about many revolutions in every walk of life.
    The aim behind establishing the institution is to develop leaders who would lead through their knowledge and intellect the suppressed people of the region who have plenty of problems which are to be resolved to give them relief and guidence for better future prospects.It is all in connection with the quote as to act locally and think globally. To bridge the gaps which are persistent and to change the mind set.
    We hope and pray that the institution flourishes more and more to bring many dreams true.
    We have to struggle hard to meet the expectations of the people and should not leave even a single stone unturned.

  8. Dear Mirza Ali,
    You might be very much right according to your observations about the aggregate productivity but this is just the begining and we can not expect over night changes or an ideal situation. It takes many miles journey to reach the destination and knwoledge has no ends. The real indication towards achievement is not merely acquiring good jobs and good positions but the intellectual developement and finally the establishment of knowledge society.
    We need knowledgable people who could enlighten many hidden talents and pave them a way towards many innovations and big changes.
    I would like to regret that we are still not into the actual stream of knowledge and will take time to promote the sense and aptitude.
    People have developed not because of one day’s effort rather have gone through many experimetal phases for centuries.
    There is the need of positive criticism to get things channelized but can not expect very big changes in no time and that can only be referred to the magicians who claim likewise.
    With regards
    Aslam Ghalib


    AKHSS is not only an instituite
    its a factory where humans build

    and the only santace about AKHSS is
    the way to akhss is


  10. AKHSS is really an asset for North. I think this institute is doing a brilliant job, but we Alumni need to get back to it with the learnings from some of the best institues and we should give it to AKHSS to make it more better. I don’t mean that Alumni should starts teaching there but they should give suggestions fir its improvement.
