Curro Waterfall High School

Academics

Curro Waterfall is an independent Curro School in Waterfall Country Village, Midrand, that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade 8 to Grade 11, with Grade 12 in 2022. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum (which includes the use of tablets in class) empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals and to reach their personal, educational and eventual workplace goals. Our dedicated teachers and well-rounded approach already prepare learners for the IEB examinations at the end of Grade 12.

 

Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9

In these grades, we guide learners to adjust to a greater workload of higher intensity. With dedicated teachers and small class sizes, our enhanced curriculum approach places great emphasis on problem-solving and individual thinking. At our school 21st-century skills are implemented in subjects such as Technology and Natural Sciences. As a Curro School, learners can further benefit from having Innovation as a subject, which includes a drone curriculum, 3D printing, laser cutting and even coffee brewing and they also receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9. Teaching takes place in English, but Afrikaans, isiZulu and Mandarin are available as additional language options.

 

FET phase: Grade 10 and Grade 11 (Grade 12 in 2022)

This phase prepares learners for the IEB examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, through our enhanced curriculum we emphasise a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examination-driven approach. Learners in our small class sizes are taught to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives to be valued members of the community. Some of our specialised subjects to promote the development of 21st-century skills include Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD) and Computer Applications Technology. As a Curro School, learners can further benefit from having Innovation as a subject, which includes a drone curriculum, 3D printing, laser cutting and even coffee brewing. Teaching takes place in English, but Afrikaans, isiZulu and Mandarin are available as additional language options.

 

We use tablets in class (2-in-1 devices)

Curro Waterfall is a Microsoft partner school, engaging with the Microsoft 365 program and its educational platform. Learners have full access to Wi-Fi and benefit from document cameras and SMARTboards. Learners also use tablets in class (2-in-1 devices) rather than textbooks. By exposing learners to the daily use of technology, they are better prepared for the challenges of tertiary studies as well as the ever-changing workplace of the future.

Additional subjects online

High-school learners can now extend their subject choices beyond what is offered at our school. Learners can choose from a wide range of subjects, and classes will take place during the school day in the form of live lessons with teachers. These subjects can be seen as an extension of our enhanced curriculum from which our learners already benefit.
