The King David Schools under the auspices of the South African Board of Jewish Education (SABJE) are a network of Jewish day schools in Johannesburg offering nursery through high school education. There are five campuses across Johannesburg: King David Linksfield, King David Victory Park, King David Sandton, Minnie Bersohn and King David Rosabelle Klein Nursery School in Waverley. Each school has an atmosphere of its own serving their specific community. King David Ariel - a new Jewish remedial school under the management of the SABJE will be opening in January 2018.
King David aims to deliver an excellent general education together with the study of Hebrew and Jewish Studies and to produce graduates who are menschen, confident and equipped to pursue any opportunity they wish to, who are proud of their Jewish heritage and its traditions, who have a love for learning, and a determination to contribute to their society.
The schools write the Independent Examination Board (IEB) examinations for Matriculation and our pass rates are historically very high with our pupils often amongst the top-ranked, nationwide. King David Schools have consistently been ranked in the top 2 feeder schools to the University of the Witwatersrand which is testimony to the fact that we equip our students excellently for post-matric studies.
The King David Schools also achieve in various sporting activities and thrive in the fields of art and culture. Each school is involved in several outreach and charity programmes, focused on the broader communities, including educational support and enrichment programmes for Schools in Alexandra and Soweto. Many King David alumni are noted for their achievements in South Africa and internationally.
The King David Schools empower our students to navigate their personal journeys through the complex world in which they live, instilling a strong sense of community, menschlichkeit, chesed and the shared values of our Jewish people.
