Cape Town - School Report Question and Answers

Please tell us anything else you think prospective parents and students should know about this school. Thanks for your contribution!

This is a school that is headed in the right direction but needs to make significant progress to meet the benchmarks to be considered a good international school, in my opinion. The administration has changed in the past few years so this may help. In comparison to the other international schools my children have attended, it feels like a South African school with an American curriculum and an international student body. Not quite a true International school yet. School is lacking in some basics like a school nurse. There are faculty members with first responder training but no dedicated actual nurse. I can see this being a real concern during an emergency situation as well as just on a day-to-day basis. Most of the energy seemed to be placed on the Elementary School and Early Childhood Center. Most of the school activities are geared towards these younger kids. For this reason, I think parents of kids in the Elementary School are very satisfied, Middle School somewhat satisfied and the parents of High School students, not as much. I'd recommend for elementary, middle with hesitations, and would not recommend for high school. - Sep 2019
