With a high profile for academic, cultural and sporting excellence in Johannesburg, Greenside High School is one of the major feeder schools for Wits University.

Greenside High School provides superior quality education in preparation for the national matric examinations. The full range of subjects is available, and the school provides learners with the support and guidance they need to garner full understanding and mechanisms to excel in their studies. Learners are given the option of taking extra subjects over and above those on offer at the school for recognition on their matric certificate.

The academic enrichment of learners takes place in top facilities including science and biology laboratories, computer networks, a Media Centre, Video Room and Lecture Theatre. Learners undergo numerous test opportunities during the course of the year to fortify understanding, and the general life of the school is enhanced through local and international school tours that cover both the curriculum and the extra-mural activities of learners.

Greenside High School is something of a dramatic arts specialist. The school is well-recognised for its theatre productions, and the school participates in a number of school drama festivals during the year, and annually heads to the Grahamstown Festival for the complement to the theoretical and practical classes that take place within the school. The school is frequently in local media publications for their premium quality productions.

Drama is both a part of the curriculum, as well as an extra- mural activity. Extra-curricular endeavours are given unique importance at the school as part of the comprehensive education at the school. Greenside High School is home to a number of successful sportsmen and women, and the recognition of talent aids in promoting the learners at the school as provincial and national representatives in a range of activities. This is fundamental in the attainment of the school’s vision to help every learner realise his or her personal potential.
