The Helderberg International School is presently safely situated within the gated community of Heritage Park in Somerset West. The school was founded in 2000 in response to requests from parents in Cape Town who had a common dream for a school that would offer their children a high-quality international education within a caring environment. In 2005 the organization SEK, through its subdivision IES (International Education Systems), purchased the school.
On the 22 September 2010 the International School of Helderberg, received IB authorization to teach the IB Primary Years Programme.
The IB PYP World School provides a co-educational and top internationally acclaimed curriculum from early childhood through to Grade 12. Traditional subject based teaching is overlaid with a programme of structured enquiry, where the children are encouraged to ask questions, be independent thinkers and be prepared to challenge what they are taught in a considered manner.
At Helderberg International School our most important goal is to achieve the students’ academic success but we also place great emphasis on helping to create rounded individuals who can succeed in any walk of life.
Our boys and girls are always encouraged to live life to the full – they learn and have fun doing it! The core curriculum is supplemented by a co-curricular program of cultural, social, service and sporting activities. Confident, happy and caring children, scholars, gifted musicians, creative artists, great performers and talented sportsmen and women alike are shaped and encouraged.
Helderberg International School is large enough to offer a broad study programmed yet small enough to retain that special family feel that is so valued by all the children, parents and staff. With the backing of International Education Systems, our school combines the very best of South African tradition/education with an international outlook that aims to equip our children for the challenges of the future.
