Johannesburg - School Report Question and Answers

Do expatriate students socialize with local students at the school? Are both groups successfully integrated into the school culture?

In my opinion, yes, and yes. One of the nicest things of this school is that it has a relatively good balance of students from all over the world. According to their website, they have 107 nationalities; over 300 students from North America, and 128 students from African countries. At AISJ, my child does not feel like an outsider, as it has happened in other places. Most children are from expatriate families who relocate every three years or so, so all face the similar challenges of constant uprooting and re-adaptation to new environments. - Sep 2022

Yes. But there is definitely an elitism element among the wealthy local kids. They are VERY wealthy and privileged. Partying during the pandemic among the wealthy kids has been an issue during the pandemic. - Mar 2021
