FPS Story

It all began way back in the 70s when an ambitious and determined individual won a Rotary Scholarship to a Master's Programme in Educational Administration and Supervision at the Syracuse University, New York.

While in the U.S. Yasmeen met and became friends with another Femme Extraordinaire Sabiha Mohammad who was and continues to be, passionately interested in Early Childhood Education. Sabiha was completing her training in America Montessori Society in the U.S. at the time.

This commonality of visions and passions of ‘Learning to Educate', brought Yasmeen and Sabiha further close, close enough to set up FPS; there has never been a moment of looking back, just “Standing on tip-toe to look beyond”.

On their return to Karachi, providence had it all chalked out for them; both Yasmeen and Sabiha began work at the same school; Yasmeen as a Vice-Principal and Sabiha, the head of the Infant Section.

Opportunity came knocking at their doors when a school building came up for rent. The two enterprising women, along with Sabiha's cousin Raza Minhas who had returned from the U.S. securing an MBA degree for himself, leased the property and the first branch of FPS opened in P.E.C.H.S on October 14, 1981 with 14 students and 5 teachers.

Today, Foundation Public School is a well-integrated network of 10 branches (7 in Karachi and 3 in Hyderabad (Sindh). It is one of the very few educational conglomerates which read the need and spelt it out so successfully by stepping on a path where most ‘feared to tread'; one of the fewer still who withstood the rising accusation that it had strengthened the hands of those who were auctioning education at exaggerated prices. But the founders of FPS have proved to its detractors that to buy quality, any price is too little.

“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world” - Joel Barker

Hence the story of FPS continues………


The motto of the school “Knowledge Is Power” is portrayed in the insignia encompassed on a shield is the “Eagle” or Shaheen”. Chosen by the Management as it inspires and symbolizes intelligence, it also signifies a flight towards freedom and knowledge.

The waves on the eagle’s body represent the five rivers of Pakistan. A reminder that, education should be spread all over the country.

The eagle is perched on three pillars which denote “Unity, Faith and Discipline” the famous words of Mohammad Ali Jinnah – Father of our Nation. Within the pillars are the letters FPS, abbreviation for Foundation Public School.


We at Foundation Public School believe in the individuals’ freedom of thought and spirit, scientific inquiry and critical thinking.
