In 1956, the Lahore American School (LAS) was founded by a parent group
as a private co-educational institution offering an American college preparatory
education from nursery to grade 12.
Accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools,
U.S.A., the school is recognized as an American Sponsored Overseas School.
It is affiliated with the Near East South Asia Schools Association (NESA).
In addition, LAS is recognized by the government of Pakistan.
The school community has a deep commitment to multi-cultural appreciation
and cooperation. The faculty and students are drawm from over 20 nations.
This diversity is one of the most valuable resources of the school.
The Guidance office provides a broad range of student and parent support
services. These include college placement assistance, class and individual
counseling in grades K-12, admissions, academic support through the Student
Study Team, career guidance and academic records and transcripts. Parents
and students are encouraged to contact the guidance office directly whenever
the need arises.
Grief Support on the World Wide Web has been developed as a resource for bereavement support. Many of the links give information regarding the grieving process and means of providing help to bereaved friends and family.

Entry into Nursery requires a child be four years of age on or before October

LAS is entering into a bold new adventure in redeveloping the present
campus into a unified, high quality educational facility. The project's
first phase includes the razing of five classrooms to make way for the
construction of seven classrooms, two middle school science laboratories,
two fully networked and internet capable computer classes and a cafeteria/multi-function
modern Performing Arts Auditorium will be constructed at the front of the
campus to host concerts, plays and other public and school functions. The
completion of these purpose built facilities will substantially upgrade
the instructional spaces used by students. Renovation of the present gymnasium,
library/media center and grounds is also being undertaken to improve efficiency,
access and safety to provide exemplary facilities for the school community.
The new playground was installed in September 1999 to provide modern, safe recreational equipment for the elementary students.

The middle school faculty has developed an internet based ethics program
for students and parents. This program is designed to assist students in
understanding the importance of ethical behavior in successful societies
and to allow them to develop their own model of ethics. Legal areas are
also investigated such as plagiarism and copyright law. Clarifying these
issues for adolescents will assist them in being successful as they emerge
The links below will take you on a journey through ethics and allow
you to investigate ethical issues. There are four modules. The first module
is an introduction. The second two focus on specific ethical issues for
investigation. The fourth is a culminating project where students use their
knowledge to demonstrate their position and feeling about ethics. Enjoy
