About Bamyan Baba School
Baba School is growing rapidly. It now has over 300 students!  Approximately 20% come from lower income homes which cannot afford the monthly tuition. They pay a sliding scale fee as determined by the Department of Education.  Many of these scholarship students are girls.

The student body consists of grades 1-9 and will be expanding to 1-10 in 2017. Its curriculum includes math, science, history, geography, physics, Dari, English and Pashtu literature. English language and computer skills begin in first grade.
The school will grow into 12th grade by 2019.  Upon graduation, many graduates will apply to the nearby, well respected Bamyan University.  Baba School is licensed, its activities are monitored by the Ministry of Education.  Results of three 2016 inspections were all “excellent”.

Our staff includes Principle Aran and Assistant Headmaster Bishmullah, 12 teachers and Mr. Neim (left) who is our night security and maintenance manager. He also rings the class bell between periods.

The current board consists of  President Amina Hasan Pur,  Deputy Governor Asif, Economic Director Navid and COAM President Sardar Mohammad Amiri. The board meets quarterly when it discusses Baba's 5-year plan which Amina maintains and updates. Our Parent Teacher's Asssociation (PTA) meets monthly, and is active in determining needs and next steps.
Baba School is fortunate to have Amina as its founder and current leader. In 2010, she attended Thunderbird for Good University’s “Artemis” 2-week business course for select Afghan women business owners.  MJ recommended Amina for that enriching training, so she would develop the know-how to manage Baba School, a private enterprise.
​Bamyan Baba School is important for the province and country's future. Baba’s teachers, both male and female, are all certified.​​ Bamyan’s two public schools — one for girls, the other for boys —  are separated by the Bamyan River. They are underfunded, overcrowded and many of the teachers are not certified.
​The number of private schools in Afghanistan is growing — a positive part of the country’s long term development.
