How I chose a school
It was either Government school or private school!
When my son started Grade 7 I looked around at High Schools close to where we stayed. We then went for a couple of interviews, and where bound by zoning for Government Schools, so we looked at a Private School in the area, and decided on the school because it had good Christian values and the classes were very small.
The standard of education was excellent, and they write the IEB exams which I believe are a bonus to have. Jackie
