About Middle School Programme

The AKU-EB Middle School Programme is a project-based learning approach for students of grade VI, VII and VIII. The projects focus on developing essential competencies often referred to as 21st Century Skills in students, which are deemed vital to success in both school years and beyond. These competencies include listening, reading and observation skills, information gathering, communication skills, interpersonal skills, critical thinking and problem solving, responsibility, team work, and creativity and innovation.

Each grade opting for Middle School Programme receives a set of six interdisciplinary projects. These project tasks are designed by AKU-EB based on middle school syllabi drawn from the National Curriculum of Pakistan that outline key concepts for each grade level across five core subjects:  Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Urdu and English.
