Superintendent's Message

Welcome Message from the LAS Superintendent, Dr. Peter M. Toscano

Welcome to Lahore American School, one of the oldest, most prestigious international schools in Pakistan. Founded in 1956, it’s proudly served the local community for 66 years. Our graduating class of 2022 – 2023 continued our tradition of excellence with acceptances to Cornell, New York University, Georgetown, North Eastern, Rutgers, McMasters University and UCLA. Many of our alumni have gone on to successful careers in business, finance, entertainment, and politics. This year’s graduating class should be no exception.

Here at LAS, we pride ourselves on our American-style education that stresses innovation, independent thinking, and character development.

We’ve been accredited by the Middle Schools Association (MSA) for nearly 5 decades and received a glowing review on our most recent visit in 2021. We’re now in the process of adding a coveted Council of International Schools (CIS) accreditation as well. It will be completed in 2024.

Our High School has a rigorous AP program with a variety of courses and will be the first school in Pakistan to offer the AP Capstone, which we are adding this school year. It’s an innovative program of study that focuses on college-level research and advanced writing and presentation skills. It’s great preparation for university academics.

Our Elementary Division is well-recognized for its student-first approach and its ability to support a variety of learners, while our Middle School is not only a place where students prepare for the challenges of High School, but it also features programs like “Week Without Walls” where students can actively explore their world, both locally and globally. As a school, our goal is to develop the whole child by offering generous options in academics, arts, athletics, and activities.

With our highly qualified faculty of foreigners and locals (over 70% possess MAs or above) and with excellent facilities, LAS is a wonderful, caring place that embraces its students with warmth and takes seriously its charge to develop the next leaders of this great country.

I certainly hope that you’ll take the time to visit us and consider becoming a part of our long tradition of educational excellence.
