Curro Nelspruit is an independent school based on Christian principles. It is situated in the tranquil hills of The Rest Nature Estate. We offer classes for boys and girls from 4 months old to matric (Grade 12).
Curro Nelspruit offers excellent learning opportunities to both English and Afrikaans learners. Language mediums remain separated up to the end of Grade 9, with the curriculum staying the same for both language groups. Grade 12 leaners have the option to write their IEB (Independent Examinations Board) exams in either Afrikaans or English.
Curro Nelspruit believes that education is the principal priority for any learner and that all learners should be provided with an education, ensuring that they reach their fullest potential. At Curro Nelspruit leaners have the opportunity to develop their individual talents, critical thinking and technology skills by being actively engaged in the learning process.
Continuous commitment to improvement ensures that our learners are well-rounded, self-directed, lifelong learners. In order to prepare learners to live in and contribute to a changing world and engage in active, lifelong learning, Curro Nelspruit provides a balanced, varied school curriculum designed to meet the academic, cultural, and social needs of each learner.
Our mission is to empower all learners to apply their acquired skills and knowledge, and to rely upon their personal attributes to lead productive lives so that they can become contributing members of a global community. This provides a high-quality, comprehensive, and meaningful education for all learners. Each individual is expected to succeed within the bounds of their abilities and chosen educational goals. Each learner is treated as an individual, given the tools to be a lifelong learner, and taught to function as a member of a group and as a productive member of society.
During your child’s high school years they are sure to find their ideal career path with Curro Nelspruit. We offer high school learners the widest variety of academic subjects any school has to offer in the Lowveld area.
Our classrooms are equipped with the latest educational teaching aids and equipment. As we are based in a nature estate, we have wonderful natural surroundings that we can use as an outdoor classroom. Learners are encouraged to question the world around them, as well as to apply what they learn to the world in which they live.
Sport and cultural activities are viewed as key to developing balanced individuals. For this reason, Curro Nelspruit provides an extensive extramural programme and offers state-of-the-art facilities. These include a hockey AstroTurf, with lights for night games, and an accredited Swim South Africa short-course 25 m swimming pool. Educational specialists and therapists are also available on campus. Curro Nelspruit offers aftercare facilities in the primary school and a daily bus service from White River, Ngodwana, Malelane and Sabie. New routes will be implemented as required.
From January 2017, Curro Nelspruit will start implementing the exciting new Windows 10 2-in-1 device. Before you purchase a new tablet for your child, click here to read more.
