Lycée Jules Verne in Pretoria
Opened in 2001 in the Willows neighborhood (East Pretoria), its premises are moving on 6 June 2013 to a strategic new location in the Arcadia neighborhood in the center of Pretoria. As a result of this move, the new campus will benefit from a very nice and fully renovated building located in the heart of the embassy district.
The students will therefore benefit from a modern environment which will be up to the high academic standards of our education system.
The curriculum is identical to the one offered in Johannesburg and teaching is bilingual as well. At the end of grade 5, students continue their curriculum (middle and high school) at the Lycée Jules Verne in Johannesburg.
