History of Pakistan Embassy International School & College, Tehran
Pakistan School in Tehran was inaugurated by the then Foreign Minister, late Mr. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto on October 17, 1964. It was set up initially to cater for the educational requirements of the Pakistani community and the embassy staff, so as to enable their children to acquire the standards requisite for admission in Pakistan schools on return home, (Tehran Times Oct. 18, 1964).
Consequently, the school evolved into Pakistan Embassy International School and College (PEISCT) which is the only institute affiliated with the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE), Islamabad, as well as University of Cambridge International Examination, UK. Thus PEISCT is the unique institute in Tehran which offers curricula from pre-nursery to A-levels, (Cambridge, UK) and grade XII, FBISE (Islamabad).
