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 among 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 testament 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. King David Schools offer our students the opportunity to participate in various leadership programmes including Diller and the President award to name a few. Our affiliation with World ORT enables our students to attend selected international student congresses around the world, interacting and learning about different cultures and discussing world issues. Every student has the potential for greatness – at King David, we know how to unlock it. 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.
