Dear Viewers!

Lahore is the second largest city in Pakistan and a centre of cultural heritage. It hosts most of the arts, cuisine, festivals, filmmaking, music, gardening and intelligentsia of the country. Known for its affiliation with poets and artists; it has the largest number of educational institutions in the country and is known as Pakistan's educational capital. Lyceum was a gymnasium and public meeting place in classical Athens where the head of the Greek army established a centre for military training and exercises. Philosophers and sophists gave talks at the Lyceum. In addition to military training and educational pursuits, the Lyceum also housed Athens Assembly meetings.1n, 335 BC; Aristotle began teaching regularly in the morning Lyceum and founded an official school. After his morning lessons, he would frequently lecture on the grounds for the public, and manuscripts of his compiled lectures were eventually circulated. His students were assigned historical or scientific research projects as part of their studies. The school was run by the students. The students elected a new student- administrator to work with the school leadership every ten days, allowing all the students to become involved in turn.

History of The Lahore Lyceum

Responding to the need and demand for a good quality educational institution at Lahore, a group of public spirited, highly motivated and renowned educationists got together to set up this institution in 1983. At the outset, only one building at a beautiful location on Aziz Avenue, Canal Road was selected to house the school. The idea was so perfectly transformed into a plan and was so skillfully executed that it received not only an encouraging response but also a warm welcome from the people. In a short period, the school reached up to its maximum capacity. There was a great demand for further expansion, so another building was selected to open a separate girls' branch almost adjacent to the main campus. The hard work, dedication, honesty and sincerity of the purpose worked and need for yet more branches came forth more forcefully. Campuses in important localities at Lahore and other main cities were set up. In approximately 28 years' time, 12 campuses with a large number of students from early school to O' level classes had come up at main cities of Pakistan.

Education Philosophy

The Lahore Lyceum is a blend of innovation and tradition. It is a broad-based educational institution incorporating all the components of children's development. It does not claim miracles but offers clearly formulated policy with regard to the children's future. It provides widest possible opportunities for the development and display of their talent. At Lahore Lyceum, the child grows up in a civilized and disciplined environment. Highly-qualified staff is inducted to meet the requirements/challenges of the new millennium. The faculty deeply cares for the pupils and provides immediate attention/guidance for any problem/perplexity observed.
The school is just the right-size, big enough to produce first-rate pupils ready for the best colleges, yet small enough for the Principal to know each pupil by name and know the child as an individual.
The school draws children from various segments of society. There are children of industrialists, traders, landlords, government servants, armed forces officers and overseas Pakistanis. Despite their different backgrounds, the children here learn to live together in a spirit of tolerance and concern for one another.
