Why choose us


There is plenty of wrong when you suffer from a disability, which is why at The Ethembeni School, we forget about what is wrong, focus on what is right and develop a strategy for individual students to learn and accomplish greatness.

Some may feel that this is impossible, but with consistency and a little bit of patience, the most amazing things are possible.

Just ask the staff of The Ethembeni School, who are witness to this every single day.
