They need to expand the amount of cultural activities we can participate in, they also need to collect our opinions and preferences a bit more often as to properly and truly create an environment for everyone. In regards to homosexuality it needs to be actively discouraged, I apologize if I may offend anyone but homosexuality isn't a good thing. In regards to the respect the boys show they need to implement new methods as to reinforce their values cause the students don't seem to care anymore. Prefect system and choosing should be different as well. It should be based of criteria of leadership rather than how good you are at sports and academics. A lot of good boys with leadership qualities and strengths alloted to different points other than sports and academics are denied the opportunity to be in a leadership position within the school. The prefect position should be given to people who deserve it and should act as a growing experience for those who would actually appreciate it. Tutor services should be recommended by the school as well. Also the school should develop a habit of observing their staff and the way they teach once in awhile cause some teachers aren't the best at teaching. They get frustrated when you're confused, they give you a vague a explanation then yell that same explanation at you thinking you'll understand it the second time just cause they're louder. Of course in regards to the teaching thing I may have been a bit bias but I hope I got my point across that the way teachers teach should be observed. The staff need to do a better job at discouraging drugs. They need to put people on break duty in areas where boys can hide and vape. I'd give the school a solid 3.5stars. We also need to more actively encourage Christianity. New variations of sport would be appreciated as well.
The school is great, if you are a border you will have a tough first few weeks but love it in no time, there is lots of culture, traditions and students have respect and honor, not a better school in the world
Pretoria boys high school is amazing school. I enjoy the school but I do wish a few things could change. The education system is wonderful. The way the boys act around female teachers, homophobia and discrimination towards LGBTQ+. Will admit it has gotten better. In terms of racial discrimination, there isn’t but the school could educate the boys on equality, in gender, sex , sexual orientation. One of my friends is bullied every single day by the same people because he is openly feminine. There are a fair share of boys and staff who aren’t discriminative towards women, gender, sexual orientation etc. As student of the school I would say it is a good school but not everything is perfect
I have no doubt that boys high is a great school but the boys high boys have treated me with absolute hatred.I have been circuses to sexism,bullying,torment and have been called homophobic slurs and have had my sexuality assumed and have been bullied for it.Boys high teaches good values but some choose not to comply but saying transphobic,sexist,misogynistic,homophobic,prejudice,racist slurs on the daily and act like good people in the public eye.The racial equality is very low in as much as there is quite a few of interracial friendships there is still internalized rasicm and homophobia in the boys
Pretoria Boys’ High school
In my five years at this establishment I came to learn that there are no contenders for a better school in the world. From the magnificent grounds to and their hard working ground staff to the most kind and sincere teachers. From core values of integrity honor to the lessons you learn from your peers. Boys high is a magical place one that I have come to learn
Boys High is probably the best school in the world

School is not bad not a system...great educational purposes and also great sport which is well rounded. Is a school with great moral values and respect as well individuals growing in a brotherhood. Some things are not resolved with the system...in terms of bullying and racism as well even though there is a minimum of it. Systems of bullying have come up but boys do not consider it seriously or is not referred properly and yet it is not in use. The school isn't a bad school it could just be a greater in certain parts but overall they are doing quite well in their department.
