  1. Johannesburg Polytech Institute (JPI) traces its origins to the arrival of South African democracy in 1994. Although we started teaching 60 pupils by then the school is now over 2000 students, (Primary & High School) including Grade R. In its 18 years of existence, Johannesburg until today JPI has grown to be one of the reputable schools in the inner city of Johannesburg, Doornforntein. Since its inception in 1997 JPI has provided quality education to thousands of boys and girls for the past 18 years. In July 2015 we have moved from the inner city old University of Johannesburg Building next to Park Station on Elloff Street to the new Doornfontein next to Doornfontein Train Station on 29 Siemert Road entrance on 10 Sherwell Street the name of our new building is Education Complex Centre.

  3. The school opened its gates to the community in 1992, marking this the 24th year. We boast a large school population of 1230 learners. All of our 48 educators are fully qualified, permanent educators. We also have 5 service staff and 24 security that has the backing of the Chubb Rapid Response unit. All of our Learners do Pure Mathematics in Grade 10. We also offer 15-course packages which include: Engineering, Graphics and Design, Travel and & Tourism, Hospitality Studies, Dramatic Arts, Physics, Mathematics, Life Sciences, and Geography to name a few. We are thus able to offer such a wide range of courses to cater to the various needs of your child/ward. Hillgrove Secondary School commits itself to the provision of quality of education for all persons we will: Foster high aspirations Create a safe and disciplined environment conducive to learning Equip all persons to participate effectively with all South Africans The ethos of the school strives to achieve excellence in academic endeavors, sport and sportsmanship, and cultural activities. The school aims to provide a supportive and structured educational environment where learners are encouraged to reach their potential academically as well as in sporting and cultural activities. Our Matric pass rate has been 90% and above for the last 4 years. Many former learners have pursued illustrious careers ranging from Medical Doctors to Chartered Accountants to pilots, from Finance Managers to Chefs, and from Chemical Technologists to Engineering, after passing through our portals. This demonstrates that we have a band of dedicated educators, who build the foundations, enabling learners to cope at the various tertiary institutions. We have also received numerous accolades for progress from the Department of Education. We are the only high school in the area that hosts after-school matric tuition classes until 16H00 daily and also on Saturdays. At present we have managed to secure the assistance of Dr. Xolo, a senior lecturer in Mathematics, to conduct classes with small groups of learners in Grade 12 in Mathematics. Many of our staff members have been selected to conduct workshops with educators from other schools. Traditional school sports are not only restricted to athletics but include activities such as soccer, netball, volleyball, etc. Many afternoons are reserved to accommodate fixtures. Eg. Grade 8 plays on Monday from 2:30 to 3:30.This is a compulsory sports program. Our grounds can accommodate a fully-fledged soccer match. We have enhanced our sports program to include touch rugby and aerobics. We also offer athletics, volleyball, netball, and soccer. A new media center was launched by a representative of Ms. Peggy Nkonyeni, our MEC Education in 2014. We also have big screens featured together with photocopying facilities. One of the attractive features of the media center is that we have computers and internet access for learners. Our media center is managed by a qualified full-time librarian. For grades 8&9, we offer computer lessons in our new IT Labs, which accommodates 42 learners per period. There is no extra cost involved in this. We aim to ensure that our learners are computer literate. The school is currently installing a state-of-the-art internet and telephone system through NEOTEL and will be a fully-fledged wi-fi zone via this system. Important information is also communicated to you in this way. The use of tablets will be promoted as study material can be uploaded. In 2015, we refurbished our main hall with porcelain tiles, a new ceiling, a new stage area, upgraded toilets, and kitchen facilities. (Enquire about discounted hall hire rates for parents and learners). The outsourced school tuck shop caters to the needs of all learners and educators with a wide range of foods available. Several organizers (eg. Sofie Darbar) provide basic sandwiches for learners who come from disadvantaged homes. Our grade 8 intake for the academic year 2016 will be an advantaged position since 2016 marks our 25th Anniversary. Immense planning is underway to commemorate this event: Fun days, concerts, dinner dances and various others have been planned to make this milestone. We would like you to be part of this historic time by enrolling your child at our school.

  5. The academic ethos at the College is as competitive as the one enjoyed in sport and cultural arenas. The College has an outstanding record of academic achievement in the IEB Matriculation Examinations. There has been a 100% pass rate for over a decade, with over 80% of boys receiving an A, B, or C aggregate and a quarter receiving A aggregates. Our small class sizes, highly qualified staff, and the emphasis on the use of state-of-the-art technology in the classrooms and laboratories are reflected in our boys’ excellent results. The school embraces the benefits of technology in enhancing learning, with the campus being covered by a wireless LAN, allowing boys access to the highly developed Kearsney intranet and the internet, and extensive use being made of SMART Boards and other ICT resources. All Grade 8 boys undergo a Readiness Test in the first week of Grade 8. The results from this test are analyzed and English literacy support lessons are offered weekly, within the timetable, by our Academic Support Specialist, to boys in Grade 8 and 9 who have been identified as having a low reading age, or who have been flagged by the English department as needing development in literacy, vocabulary or comprehension skills. Should a boy start to show signs of battling with the rigors of his high school studies such as not completing tasks or tests on time not keeping up with the content covered in class or battling to retain information when studying, it is suggested that his parents make an appointment with the College’s Academic Support Specialist. She may recommend that a boy undergoes an educational psychologist’s assessment to determine whether he has an underlying barrier to learning. A list of IEB-approved educational psychologists will be provided to the parents to set up this assessment. Once the report from the educational psychologist has been received an application will be made by the Academic Support Specialist, on behalf of the parents, to the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) for the granting of an examination accommodation for the boy. Should the accommodations be granted by the IEB they are then put in place. Every boy’s academic support requirements are unique. In addition, some boys are busier in the afternoons than others. We believe that customizing an individual academic support program, at no extra cost, for each boy within the context of a varied, cumulative, and structured assessment program, will ensure that he achieves academic results at the end of his Grade 12 year that is in keeping with his true academic potential. Kearsney provides a dynamic environment to promote sporting excellence, sportsmanship, and healthy competition for all. The SportZone at Kearsney has been developed to provide outstanding facilities to complement our well-established High-Performance program. The SportZone includes a 280sq meter weights gym where individualized conditioning programs are provided for our sportsmen. The indoor center provides seven cricket nets with full run-ups and four bowling machines, indoor hockey and soccer, and two basketball courts. The aquatic facilities are among the best in South Africa, with two pools, one heated. There are more than 20 sporting venues on campus. Professional coaches are employed for training and developing the boys’ skills and fitness. Some of South Africa’s great sportsmen are Kearsney Old Boys and are involved in coaching clinics at the College from time to time. Kearsney College is without peers when it comes to excellence in arts and culture. Our internationally renowned choir, vibrant drama scene, and excellent Fine Arts program are complemented by a dynamic club and cultural program. [email protected] is our exciting annual program designed to celebrate the arts and promote cultural appreciation among the youth in KwaZulu-Natal. Watch a video about the program. Read more. In keeping with the College’s aim of developing well-balanced boys, all boys are encouraged to become a member of at least one club. Kearsney strives to teach boys that emotional courage IS courage, and that courage and empathy are the sources of real strength in life.

  9. Lenasia Secondary School or Lenz High as it is more commonly known to the community has been instrumental in the education of the Lenasia community. Lenz High is the first school that was built in Lenasia by the then apartheid government to cater to the educational needs of the Indian community. In the early years, the school was attended by few residents from Lenasia and many learners from Fordburg in Johannesburg were forced by the apartheid regime to travel daily by train to the school. Lenasia Secondary School has served Lenasia, and Johannesburg since 1955. The school has been innovative in adapting to change and remains well-positioned to provide for learners in a constantly changing global environment. In fulfilling its clear vision and mission the school has developed, grown, and excelled. The School is well known and respected throughout Lenasia and its surrounding areas and many of its Alumni continue to be influential in many facets of society and make a sustained and invaluable contribution to society wherever they may be. Lenz High has through the many years of its existence produced and continues to produce many skilled community members that are leaders in the areas of Arts, Science, Engineering, Medicine, Sport, and even the Politics of South Africa. Many of the school's past learners enjoy a best-of-breed status in their respective careers, which provides testimony to the school's achievement. The key values which drive Lenz High and which are imparted to the school's learners are Leadership, tolerance, respect for others, and loyalty to our school and country. The ethos of Lenz High is structured on these key values and the school continues to innovatively adapt to any new developments in teaching and learning. The winds of change sweeping across our country confirm the long-standing values and traditions of Lenz High. The School is a very busy place because it offers a diversity of activities. The pages that follow detail that diversity and hopefully provide a sense of the pleasure, privilege, and responsibility associated with being a product of Lenz High. Our vision is to become a world-class school that provides academic, sporting, and leadership excellence that will provide all our learners with a strong sense of social responsibility, environmental awareness and who are leaders in every discipline who value and respect the rights of all. Achieve educational excellence Develop a comprehensive guiding philosophy that promotes commitment, enthusiasm, professionalism, ownership, and achievement Transform Lenasia Secondary School into an educational institution that every learner aspires to attend and every educator will want to be part of Care for and value each of our learners, educators, and parents Create an environment that supports educational excellence and achievement Provide all our learners with the skills that will help them to succeed in a global environment Foster a culture of learning and harmony amongst all our stakeholders Develop critical thinking skills amongst our learners Our internal disciplinary procedures are based on a restorative approach to discipline and are aimed at learners understanding how their actions affect/impact others. In most cases, the consequences for infringements should be immediate.

  13. Mandisa Shiceka High School was established in 1995 under the auspices of the Kagiso Education Crises Committee and some educators who were volunteering their services. This establishment aimed to accommodate learners who could not be admitted to local schools due to the high rate of learners who were seeking admission. Furthermore, the intention was to offer quality teaching and learning programs. The school was officially opened on the 6th October 2000 by Mr. Ignatius Jacobs, the MEC for education. Mandisa Shiceka High school is a public school under the Gauteng Department of Education. It is named after the late Mandisa Shiceka who was a member of the Gauteng Provincial Legislature. Dr. V.K. Joseph was officially appointed as the 1st principal of the school in August 1998. We have a Teacher / Learner ratio of 1:30 and our school quintile is 4. The school has ±60 percent of learners whose parents are not working. Furthermore another ±20 percent of parents who are working earn below minimum wage. This situation presents a challenge where parents are not able to meet the basic needs of their children. They cannot afford to provide lunch, in a form of food or pocket money for their children. Ensuring a high level of academic excellence through quality teaching and learning through maximum participation of all stakeholders. Our vision is to make sure that learners develop certain knowledge, values, and attitudes that will ensure that when they leave school their behavior will make them responsible and independent citizens that will be productive in a global community. The school is consistently achieving good results for the past 10 years. We have been titled as having the best chess team for our district. We also have won a trophy and 2 football kits in the Silver Stars Competition for under 16. Once again Mandisa Shiceka High School remains one of the shining stars of Gauteng West District. It has sustained a good record of producing outstanding matric results. Last year i.e. 2017, the school produced 97.2% (matric pass) results. Two Learners achieved distinctions in all subjects. We are very proud of their achievements and wish them well in their future endeavors. Based on these achievements, the school is now on the MEC’s roll-out program of ICT i.e very soon our school will also go paperless. Learners will receive tablets and smart boards will be installed in classrooms. We offer the following extra-mural activities: Soccer, Netball, Chess, Public Speaking, Rugby, Arts and Culture Groups, and Basketball.

  15. Navalsig High School is a multicultural school that strives towards developing the excellence of each individual's God-given talents in learning, teaching, and services, thus empowering each one to contribute towards our renaissance. As Navalsig High School offers comprehensive education in different study courses, all learners interested in enrolment must apply at the school in good time and provide proof that they are competent for the courses on offer. Certain external factors, eg. place of residence, feeder schools, and relatives at the school, will be taken into account. School-based assessment (SBA) is the assessment of the learner’s performance carried out on an ongoing basis at the learning site by the educator, using various assessment techniques. SBA will thus help to re-instate the culture of continuous teaching and learning. We are very proud of the achievements of the school over the past two decades. To celebrate Navalsig High School’s contribution to the community, we are planning great festivities for the weekend of 1 to 3 August. The purpose of the celebrations is to bring the whole Navalsig High School community together and celebrate our love for the school. The program will include a formal dinner for former students. On Saturday we are planning a huge arts-and-crafts market, Navalsig old-boys vs Brebner old-boys soccer match as well as u/19 soccer and netball matches. There will also be netball matches for former Navalsig players. On Saturday evening we will host Navalsig’s got talent in the school hall. The festivities will be concluded with a spiritual program in the gym hall on Sunday morning with current learners, parents, and former learners all combining in fellowship. During the weekend we want to allow our current learners to enjoy themselves and meet former students. We also want to give our current learners the chance to showcase their talents and develop their entrepreneurial skills. The proceeds from the reunion will go towards a library/media center for our learners. This event will allow current learners to practice their entrepreneurial abilities. A stand of 3m by 3m will be allocated to participants on the hockey field. Application forms are available at the school office. Parents or Guardians of current Navalsig learners will pay R100 for the use of the stand and will be granted the opportunity to sell arts, crafts, food, or other approved goods. The public will be invited to attend and the media will cover the festivities live from our sports fields. The arts-and-crafts market will be advertised on radio stations as well as in newspapers. People who are not associated with the school will also be able to book a stand for the day at R250.
