Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Hout Bay International School is more than a school – it is a community of diverse individuals and families, a centre for academic excellence, for some a home away from home and yet more importantly a family for all those that are part of it. Few schools can boast that they belong to two international organisations spanning across almost every continent of the globe. The first being International Education Systems (IES), a family of international schools committed to quality educational experiences for all who attend and, second, the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), renowned for its high quality and rigorous academic programme.

The curriculum is a combination of the South African National Curriculum, matched with the British National Curriculum and delivered through the innovative pedagogy of the International Baccalaureate.
