Cape Town - School Report Question and Answers
Are students generally challenged appropriately by the curriculum? Please describe any particular strengths or weaknesses in this area. Do you have any thoughts how the curriculum is applied and implemented at this school?
This really depends on the student and the teacher. In the past few years, grading was really random depending on the teacher. As at any school, some teachers are really stellar and others are merely ok. This year, grading is finally starting to become more standardized across the upper school with more emphasis placed on test results and less on homework. In the past, students were penalized very harshly for late homework. This is no longer the case although it is still expected to be completed. My children are mostly appropriately challenged. - Sep 2019
