The Happy Home School (also referred to as HHS) is a chain of 7 school / educational institutions in Karachi, Pakistan for children from ages three to sixteen. HHS prepares students for the Matriculation and GCE O-Level examinations, which certify that students are qualified for higher education.

History[edit]

After migrating to Pakistan, Maryum Faruqi (the founder of HHS), alongside Qazi Issa, worked for National Guard Movement to prepare girls and ladies for emergencies. She joined the Mama Parsi School in order to attend vocational classes. Observing the strong need for good schools, she laid the foundation of Happy Home School in her own bungalow with admission of 5 students, in February 1949. The number of students grew rapidly, making it impossible to run school from home. Hence, the school's first building was constructed at Shaheed-e-Millat in 1952.[1]
