Cape Town - School Report Question and Answers
Please describe some of your child's/children's highlights and challenges during their time at this school.
Challenges: lack of variety in extra curricular activity, no opportunities for music and drama outside of the classroom, difficulty in making friendships, bus transportation doesn't follow logical routes and takes too long, school struggles with logistics, planning and attention to details. Highlights: last year was the first year of Innovation Term. This was 12 days at the end of the school year, after finals and graduation. All students from elementary through grade 11 were required to participate. Each signed up for one course which was anything from bike riding (half day elementary school option) to cooking and meal presentation (middle school option) to Wildlife Conservation in Botswana (high school option). Those 12 days this was all they did. This was a great way to focus on something new and get to know teachers in another way. This sets the school apart and is definitely something they have to offer that I haven't seen at other schools yet. Ability to take AP classes was another highlight for my children - Sep 2019
