Streetlight Schools - South Africa

Jeppe Park is an innovative, low-cost primary school in one of the most difficult areas of inner-city Johannesburg.

Launched in January 2016, the school now has 120 learners Grades R-2. It will continue to grow by one grade each year until it reaches Grade 7 in 2022. Students arrive with almost no early childhood development, and within a year are on par with their international peers in academic, social-emotional and 21st century skills.

This school is the flagship school of Streetlight Schools, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to showcase a vision for quality education in South Africa.
