Rand Park High School traditionally serves a community that feeds the various tertiary institutions in Johannesburg.
The school has produced outstanding results during its relatively short history. Each year, several learners obtain multiple distinctions and go on to excel at university. An excellent matric pass rate is achieved each year as a result of the commitment of staff and learners which enhances the school’s proud academic reputation.
Our Class of 2016 achieved a 99.6% pass rate.
Top academic achievers were Edie Hutchison (pictured right), Saigan McNeill, Theodore Muka, Tarryn Sudbury and Kirstyn Zoutendyk. These learners achieved 6 distinctions each.
Furthermore, Mahdi Boukrout, Dovanya Govender, Chelsea Palmer-Jones, Nthabiseng Pule, Meghan Sinclair-Black and Rishita Voolla each achieved 5 distinctions in last year’s National Senior Certificate examinations.
17 subjects are offered including English Home Language, Afrikaans First Additional Language, Mathematics, Mathematical Literacy, Physical Science, Life Sciences, History, Geography, Life Orientation, Accounting, Business Studies, Engineering Graphics and Design, Consumer Studies, Information Technology, Computer Application Technology, Visual Art and Physical Education.
Advanced Programme Mathematics and English are also offered to learners who wish to study these subjects in greater depth and improve their critical thinking and skills.
Technology is used extensively in classrooms.
To complement the economic, natural and human sciences, languages and technology subjects offered to learners, the school offers a broad life-skills programme to ensure that the needs of the whole child are met.
