Founded in 2012, Maktab is a private co-educational school, Preschool to A-levels, offering a supportive yet intense environment to a small, diverse community of passionate learners.
“When I picture a snapshot of Maktab in my head, I see some students sitting under a tree with their lunch boxes chatting about their passions ranging from robotics to painting to physics to literature to entrepreneurship.”
They have different physical abilities but all love sports. They are actively involved in Maktab’s Community Initiative, an outreach programme that teaches computer programming to the children from the neighbouring villages. There are kids painting in the fruit orchard, some children are working on a mechanics experiment in the science lab, two students are discussing a problem in Diophantine theory, some student is in the music room experimenting with the tabla.

Maktab is proudly an atypical school. It is impossible to find a school of such intellectual intensity, with such a close-knit student population that is supported by teachers that are so passionate about their subjects. While the best way to experience Maktab is in person, you can get a glimpse of what makes us special by clicking on the link below.
The school’s newsletter, Ayyam-e-Maktab, is published on a quarterly basis. It is entirely run by the student body. The Chief Editor and Assistant Editor are chosen from senior classes on a rotating basis.
