Curro Foreshore is an innovative, technologically-advanced high school in Foreshore, Cape Town. Our modern, technology-rich school offers English-medium teaching and accommodates learners in Grades 8 and Grade 9, with higher grades phasing in annually. Our unique e-learning model focusing on 21st-century skills prepares learners for the fourth industrial revolution through a project-based learning programme that emphasises Science, Mathematics, and Technology.
What do we offer?
At Curro Foreshore, teaching takes place through leading e-learning tools and videos, with teachers and tutors providing one-on-one assistance as needed. By moving the teachers away from the whiteboard and into the classroom, learners can get more immediate and personal assistance to understand a particular concept before moving on.
With a great focus on 21st-century skills, we offer advanced Technology, Science, and Mathematics, as well as a Robotics and coding programme. Learners are prepared to write the NSC (National Senior Certificate) examinations at the end of Grade 12.
Our longer school hours and no-homework policy accommodate the schedules of working parents by removing the pressure of managing heavy loads of homework. Learners can be dropped off early in the morning (from 07:00) when parents are on their way to work and picked up after office hours (until 17:30).
How do we use technology in the classroom?
As the first Curro school to adopt the DigiEd curriculum approach, our teaching method centres around the use of technology. Learners watch instructional videos rather than read purely from textbooks, receive multimedia-based material, and have access to remote tutor assistance via the internet.
Learners get their own school email account to easily to securely liaise with teachers and team members regarding projects. The cost of any electronic textbooks used in the classroom are already included in the school fees.
