About King David Schools

King David Schools, under the auspices of the South African Board of Jewish Education (SABJE) are a network of Jewish day schools in Johannesburg offering nursery through high school education across five campuses in Johannesburg. King David Schools currently has 3300 students and 300 educators in our family of schools.

King David aims to deliver an excellent general education together with the study of Hebrew and Jewish Studies. Our purpose is to produce graduates who are menschen, who are confident and equipped to pursue any opportunity they wish to, who are proud of their Jewish heritage and its traditions, who have a love for learning, and a determination to contribute to their society.

The schools write the Independent Examination Board (IEB) examinations for Matriculation and our pass rates are historically very high with our pupils often amongst the top-ranked, nationwide. King David Schools have consistently been ranked in the top 2 feeder schools to the University of the Witwatersrand which is testimony to the fact that we equip our students excellently for post-matric studies.

King David Schools also achieve in various sporting activities and thrive in the fields of art and culture. Each school is involved in several outreach and charity programs, focused on the broader communities, including educational support and enrichment programs for Schools in Alexandra and Soweto. Many King David alumni are noted for their achievements in South Africa and internationally.
