Parow high is by far the worst experience of my life ive literally never felt the way i do now. Parow high is a school that does not care about the learners and their interests as long as they barely pass and follow the idiotic rules its fine by them

School rules and the way the school treats us.

I know every school has rules ,but parow high's school rules is unnecessary, they say they care about the learners but they don't, we don't have that freedom that we want, they have a problem with everything, and the school bags as well , my bag is black , and it's a redbat bag , and I was forced to cover my bag because apparently it had the redbat logo on it ,but my bag was black so I didn't see why I had to cover it . Other schools have more privileges than us , all the school cares about is keeping there name up high, nobody is there for us , when someone passed away at our school they weren't really there to support us or show that we all in this together ,and yes it is a good school , the teachers are qualified and know what they doing, but parow high must stop with all the unnecessary rules and allow us abit more privileges because school has to be fun as well ,not just about teachers shouting and some grade heads treating learners like they are nothing. I don't like being at school because I don't like the way the school treats us .

We are all being made into someone we are not

Parow highschool is like society.They want everyone to be the same.Same hair, same clothes,same personality.I think this is utterly ridiculous because our highschool years are made for us to find and learn about ourselves but Parow high wants us all to be the same.Everyones hair needs to be straightened because apparently natural textured hair is 'uneat' and 'unprofessional' and you get sent home if you wear your hair to school naturally.Braids are only allowed a certain way and you have to have a permission slip.Boys hair needs to all be the same height.When i went to school the other day a educator was walking around collecting the students hair ties and giving them black ones.This school doesn't not care about anything but hair and their own reputation.Students do not feel comfortable at all at school and i would not recommend this school to any parent who loves him or her child.They are transforming your child into another person and destroying every bit of self confidence and self love your chil will ever have.I regret coming here so much.

Parow high school is more worried about how your hair looks and what bag you are wearing than the learners education, the rule about boys hair is ridiculous and very inconsiderate, some boys prefer to grow their hair out because they feel comfortable with their hair long, if you want to be be comfortable and be yourself parow high is not the school to go to

School is good, however, they do not allow children to be comfortable with the way they want to be, I fact, Parow high schools governing body, made it as such to send children home, not allow them to write examinations, or partake in events if their hair is not up to standard according to the teachers different opinions, they are not allowed to wear any type of mask, only black, or the schools mask, which in these tes, are not supposed to matter what mask you wear#covid 19.they get sent home because of socks, and their backpacks even get taken from them, and they are forced to buy a bag with the school badge on which many cannot afford. The point is that every teacher has their own opinion, so does every student, hair, socks, masks, pants, and backpacks, don't affect our education, so why should those things matter if a school is a place of education, it is not a place of discipline

The school of GREATNESS!

GREATNESS!The school of talent, spirit, hard-working students and most importantly discipline. Hoërskool Parow is the best school because teachers allow you to find you inner self and Parow high is not only a school, we are a family because together we stand and together we shall strive. So we can transcend!

Parow high. #movingforward

Our school is opening up this year to new things and change. We are also putting us as the learners first and foremost.

One thing that really stood out to me about attending Parow High was the educators and their professionalism and passion for teaching. It's exactly this that has striked my own passion for teaching. The language teachers especially. It is exactly in my English class where I developed a love for writing poetry and other creative forms such as film, drama and music.
The cost of school fees at PHS is much more affordable than most schools in the area and accomodates kids from very different backgrounds. Personally, I believe this gives students more perspective, social growth and understanding.
I think there might be many mixed reviews of the school but I personally feel that you only really understand the school and its dynamics once you attend it and experience it for yourself.
Parow High has a very impressive alumni particularly in music and TV. I just wish there were subject choices to accomodate that. The current and future students could really benefit from it.

i am a past pupil at parow high and i can say from experience that in terms of academics it is a good school but if your child has trouble adapting to new environments or if you want them to learn in a mentally-healthy and non-discriminating environment , this is not the place for them.

Too many rules that is directly appointed to certain cultures and religions;afro hairstyles, black bags, cellphones are not allowed, which i think is absolutely unreasonable .. Level of education 9/10.
