Private Schools

Which are better? Private schools or public schools? How do they compare? It’s a question parents ask often as they consider sending their children to school.

Public schools or private schools? Its not that easy, there are no clear-cut answers or conclusions. Public schools have their advantages and disadvantages. Private schools offer an alternative. Which works best for you? That’s the real question that you have to answer.
Paying a premium on education should guarantee excellent performance, and students at these institutions should outperform their peers.
In most cases, students from top public schools perform just as well as their peers from prestigious independent schools.

Some question to keep in mind:
• How are discipline issues handled?
• How are students placed in classes?
• What extracurricular activities are offered?
• How are discipline issues handled?
• What is the school’s student-to-teacher ratio?
• Is your child’s education a rands and cents decision, or are there other factors at play in your decision?

What are the things that are important to you, and what are your priorities.

Curro Holdings and AdvTech Group are the largest Independent School owners in South Africa.
