Johannesburg - School Report Question and Answers

What personal or academic counseling resources are available at this school? Is there a dedicated college counselor at the school? Is he/she familiar with universities worldwide?

High school has two counselors. Kids are assigned to them based on the first letter of their family name: A-L assigned to one counselor. M-Z assigned to the other. We are not aware of how familiar they are with universities worldwide. - Sep 2022

Pretty good school counseling support for kids. College counselor seems to know about schools worldwide, but it has not been great support. I think it's very generic and kind of a mismatch from the high quality education and reputation of the school. It's a good/pretty good school with a high powered IB program that really challenges kids (in some not such great ways sometimes though), and yet the college counseling is pretty basic. We have a college kid too and the support from our US public school was much better. - Mar 2021
