Habib Public School is the realization of a dream. Mr. Muhammad Ali Habib, a Banker, Philanthropist and a Planner, realized the need for a good quality school in Karachi, managed by the Muslim community that could provide quality education to all without discrimination. The School started on 7th July 1959 (11th Zilqad) with four blocks of buildings, named, Ahmed House, Ghulam Ali House, Dawood House, and Sharif House. The first administrator of the School was late Mr. Yousuf Qasim, who supervised the construction work as well as carried out admissions and appointment of staff.
On the first day only three admissions were received. However within one year there were no seats available. This was in spite of the fact that the premises were considered isolated and marshy. There was no public transport facility in this area. Some children used to walk from places as far as Saddar or Cantt Station. In the formative years the school established credentials in academics and sports; in fact the pioneers always believed that the two facet of learning are closely interwoven, what is taught as values in classrooms is demonstrated aptly in the play fields. Together the experience leaves indelible imprints on the minds and behaviour of students who carry the learning into their practical life and benefit the society.
By 1963, in a short period of four years, the School had become one of the high-profile schools of Karachi. The School became well known throughout the country and also internationally. The school became the leading school of the city and the elite of the city turned for admission of their children.
Land was reclaimed from the sea and, over a period of 15 years, facilities were added for a second hockey field, a swimming pool, an auditorium, Physics and Chemistry labs and Secondary and Cambridge classrooms.
The school has been a full day school from its start, emphasizing on whole-child development and not only classroom learning. The school also provided fee concessions, stationery and uniforms to the needy students so that it should not become a school for the rich only. At present the fee concession exceeds Rs.5 million annually. The Cambridge System of Education was also introduced in 1980.

Habib Public School
Habib University was founded in 2014 based on the realization that to improve Pakistan’s standing in terms of human development required immediate action to be taken to address the intellectual and access challenges faced by higher education in Pakistan.
The Habib Family, with its long tradition of supporting philanthropic causes, stepped forward to provide the impetus required to bring about this transformative change by giving the largest-ever donation to an educational institution in the country.
Habib University is Pakistan’s first not-for-profit liberal arts and sciences university which offers a transformative academic experience based on an interdisciplinary curriculum that is contextualized, locally grounded and globally engaged, in order to produce graduates that are active citizens, constructive thinks and are able to engineer indigenous solutions.
The University is able to do this through its two schools – the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and the Dhanani School of Science Engineering – and the six degree programs on offer. Additionally the University offers a range of minors to provide its graduates the breadth and depth of knowledge required to succeed in a continuously evolving world.
A needs-blind admission policy ensures that the only qualifier for admission is merit. Habib University is one of the most generous private universities in the world awarding scholarships and financial aid to almost 90% of is students. The University’s Talent Outreach Promotion and Support Program (HU TOPS) provides 100% scholarships for the four-year undergraduate program to outstanding students from local educational boards from compromised socio-economic backgrounds.
