Johannesburg - School Report Question and Answers

Is the amount and type of homework generally appropriate for the age and grade of the students?

Homework in grade 9 was about an hour a day. It has gone up considerably in grade 10, and we have been told to expect it to continue increasing in grades 11 and 12. - Sep 2022

There is a LOT of homework for the HS kids. It's kind of sad because we live in this beautiful country with so much to see and do, and yet we are often stuck at home because the kids have SO MUCH homework to do every weekend. Some teachers have even given homework during holiday breaks! I find this incredibly unfair to the students and families. People need a break! I wish the school would understand the importance of work-life balance! - Mar 2021
