The school is terrible. There are only a handful of teachers of colour, all but five white teachers act racist, the school only prioritises rugby, athletics, cross country and cricket. The deputy principal breaks down your confidence every time you have it and the school makes decisions that are not in the best interests of the learners. The only good thing there is the food,the five non-racist white teachers and the teachers of colour. I am however thankful for the ground staff, the tuckshop ladies and the people at the café. They have earned the respect of the majority of learners and a minority of teachers. This respect is definitely well deserved. The school only looks good if you are not attending the school. I would never recommend the school to anyone
I don't recommend BHS. The only good thing there is the food and a handful of teachers and students. I can honestly say that there are three non-racist white people at the school. There was another one but the school let her go last year. She and my Grade 8 teacher were there reason why I settled into the school. The deputy principal is rude, mean and racist. The principal lacks communication skills. The school culture altogether is rubbish. The school looks very good if you are not attending the school. I am also thankful for the ground staff,tuckshop ladies and employees at the café who have earned the respect of the majority of learners and a minority of teachers. I would never recommend the school
Never consider going to BHS. The only good thing there is the food and a handful of teachers. The deputy principal is, in my personal opinion, a jerk. He calls learners stupid just for failing to correctly answer his questions in class. I find that rude, mean, confidence killing abd derogatory. The school threatens to kick you out if you refuse to participate in sport. The school only prioritises rugby,athletics, netball and hockey, not other sports. This is the reason why the school's sport culture is very overrated. I feel like the school is hindering transformation as there is only one teacher of mixed race ,a small amount of Indian teachers and two Black African teachers. The school only looks good if you are not attending the school. It still suprises me as to why over a thousand children apply to go there every year.
Lovely school , I really enjoyed my 5 years being there. The only change I'll make is probably making things more fair , such us the voting of Prefects , captains , picking of sport matches as I feel that not everyone is being treated equal , unless you call spoon feeding the "remarkable" ones the cake when infact you should share so that everyone can make it out on top , I say this as it took me 4 years to get my colours when I placed first in every competition I participated in , and the excuse I got was , " I wasn't a team player" ...
The discipline in the school is outstanding! They teach the kids wrong from right and try their best to make the children into successful leaders; not followers; the school aims to teach your children to persevere and to keep your head high. Academics comes first; like it should; and there is a huge spectrum of sports to choose from !
As a previous pupil at Benoni High I knew that the best place for my son to learn discipline, respect and academics was in Benoni High. The school has amazing teachers and has been rated as one of the top schools in South Africa. Their sports programs and coaches do an awesome job training the kids. My son is in Matric this year and has become a respectable human being. Thank you BHS for bringing out the best in our kids through discipline and hard work.
