School is often backlashed for its curriculum, which is considered Anti-Pakistan by people. It happened after the leakage of question paper on the internet, containing questions that offended Pakistanis as it was against our army’s role in the war of 1965 and 1971.
People asked for a ban on the school and its curriculum. In 2016 school faced another criticism for banning speaking of Punjabi language within the school and termed Punjabi’ as a foul language. Punjabi people sharply criticized this policy.
After too much criticism on social media, the school took back its notification and justified it was just a mistake.
