Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Curro Academy Riverside our learners are guided to adjust to a greater workload of higher intensity. Our teaching is aimed at developing innovative and critical thinking, while a problem-solving approach is taken to subjects such as Mathematics. Our affordable, enhanced curriculum places a great emphasis on language development, and 21st-century learning is implemented in subjects such as Science and Technology.
Our learners receive help when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9. We also offer career guidance as part of our value-added programme to help with the decision.
FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12
The FET phase prepares learners for the NSC examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, emphasis is placed on a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examination-driven approach. Our learners are taught to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives to be valued members of the community. We also provide them with an inherent dedication to hard work and achievement. Some of our focused subjects include Business Studies, Economic and Management Sciences and Geography.
We use tablets in class
High school learners may choose to use tablets in class as a supplement, which further prepares them for the workplace of the future. By using tablets in class, our teachers can provide learners with additional information or exercises at the touch of a button.
