At Mount Linden School there are a maximum of 15 learners during lesson time. We follow the Department of Education CAPS curriculum used by many local private schools. It is supplemented by additional memorization work ensuring that your child’s capacity for conceptual understanding, concentration and memorization is increased with every grade.
Smaller class size means more quality time spent with your child.
Regular Reward Time
Regular reward time allows our children to take very short breaks in between classes, where they can play and run. This increases their performance in class and motivates their good behaviour during lesson-time.
Compete Against Your Own Standards
At school, children are encouraged to compete against their own standards, making them develop their potential - instead of looking to others to set standards for approval.
Safety is important for us. All school functions are during day-time hours and are kept to a minimum, reducing the pressure and stress caused by overloaded schedules. We value family quality time and healthy boundaries. Supervised collection ensures that our children are safer during drop-off and collection time.
Initially a need was recognised for a school that used a
child-centred approach toward education in the East Rand. The
Montessori and Waldorf behavioural approaches were very
influential in the way the school would ‘set learners up for
success’. A Department of Education approved curriculum has
always been used at Mount Linden School. Many of the private
schools started using these curriculums as ANA was introduced by
the Department of Education. The need for small classes became
evident from the onset. The needs of the Educators were also
taken into consideration, since their stress levels influence
the quality of education that is delivered.
As time went by, the Department of Education used a more learner centred approach that is holistic and our Educators that are qualifying today have this holistic approach as part of their University curriculum and training. It is so inspiring for our Educators to see the growth and development of this in our country.
Linden School values your family time and hosts no
fundraising/sport events that take up your “quality family
time”. Most of our families are hard-working folk, who
appreciate healthy boundaries and predictable routines. The
homework is simple to follow, tests are predictable and our
projects are given at the beginning of the term – giving mom
plenty of time to do her shopping for the project.
We hope to provide your family with predictable academic involvement that supports your family and safeguards us all from stress as much as possible.
