Lahore Grammar School was established in Lahore in January 1979 by a group of women with a commitment to quality education and with the aim of providing a creative alternative to the existing educational facilities available in the country. The initial focus of LGS was the promotion of female education. However, it was soon realized that quality educational institutions were needed for young boys as well. This led to the opening of the boys’ branch in 1992.
The LGS system now offers comprehensive education comprising of both Matric/O’ and A’ level to both boys and girls. The school has several branches in the city of Lahore as well as in Multan, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Peshawar, Quetta, Karachi, Sargodha and Islamabad.
Lahore Grammar School has also extended its school network to cater to the needs of middle income families, called the Landmark Project. Children from the lower income group are served by the LGS Ilm Schools.
Introduction to LGS JT Junior School
Introduction At LGS, our aim is to produce confident and successful learners. We nurture in our students, a love of learning and help them establish a safe and healthy lifestyle. We wish to produce tolerant and responsible citizens through character building, civic sense and environmental awareness. Our curriculum aims to enable students to become successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and learn to achieve independently. The syllabus is not based only on a set of text books but on a checklist of learning objectives and attainment targets. To provide an authentic process for assessing student understanding, assessments are ongoing and unannounced. We strive to enable students to synthesize and apply their learning of previous years, as they progress from one grade to the next. Our resources include a range of text books, handouts, multimedia, lab and field work. Children are taught to use the dictionary, thesaurus, atlas, interviews, surveys, the library and different search engines as tools of learning.
We strongly believe in the core values of respect and good manners. We expect our students to observe these values and their parents to reinforce them.
However, we will not be able to accomplish this task without your support. Together we must learn to regard decency and decorum in all situations. We must indulge in solving issues and not creating them.
Our gatekeeper and front office staff is here to serve and facilitate you as well as maintain discipline and security by enforcing the school rules and regulations. Unfortunately, we have had incidents of inappropriate behaviour by some parents who in the heat of the moment forget that their aggression seriously affects not just their own child but all other students and parents in waiting and at the same time poses a security risk.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that a parent’s/ guardian’s inappropriate behaviour, use of foul language, threats or other forms of aggression may lead to suspension of the student or further action. Also, please be informed that filming on or around school premises is highly prohibited.
Looking forward to your cooperation in becoming a tolerant, disciplined and courteous nation
Each student’s progress is monitored closely by the Principal, Counsellor, Coordinators and Teachers. We keep a vigilant eye on the academic growth and progress of every student. Our goal is to help all students do their best. We are well aware that grades are not the only criterion to measure a child’s worth. However, if a student does not show promise and improvement in meeting the required attainment targets by the end of the academic year, he/she may be: Accommodated / Conditionally Promoted – the student is bound to maintain a minimum of C grades in all the main subjects for promotion into the next class. Detained – the student is not capable of handling the next level of learning unless the existing gaps are filled, is underage and struggling to meet the learning objectives or was already Conditionally Promoted. Asked to leave – the student has already been detained/ promoted conditionally and is still unable to meet the minimum attainment targets. Each measure is taken for the child’s betterment after careful thought, fair warnings and meetings with parents.The Principal, Counselor, Coordinators and teachers are always available by appointment and via email.For contact details and further information, please visit our website www.lgsjohartown.com.
Please note 80 % attendance is mandatory for promotion. Why It Matters: Students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. When students miss a concept, it is often difficult for them to catch up to the same extent as the rest of the class. Habitual absenteeism directly affects a student not only academically but socially and emotionally too.
Why It Matters: It is imperative for students to be on time as discipline, safety and security go hand in hand. Students who come in late to school miss out on critical instructions given by teacher in homeroom and disrupt the rest of the class.
