Special needs high school in Parktown North, Johannesburg

Baobab Learner Centre is a private, special needs high school for 15 individuals aged between 13 and 21 with various developmental disabilities.

At Baobab, teenagers and young adults learn the fundamentals of academic learning, practice social integration and slowly discover their niche successes at their own pace.

Highly qualified team of remedial teachers

Baobab Learner Centre's highly trained, competent and experienced team of remedial teachers and teaching assistants create a safe, nurturing environment that breaks learning and social barriers though laughter and hard work. Pupils are given the opportunity to reach Grade 10 and further, in very small classes within a home environment.

Extra-murals teach valuable life skills

Baobab Learner Centre also has an extensive extra-curricular programme that forms part of a holistic curriculum designed to suit teenagers with special needs, such as cooking and taekwondo.

See our website for the success stories of past pupils which are a testament to the deep understanding the teachers have of each child’s unique identity, character and potential to become independent, well-adjusted adults.

We have finally found a place for James to explore his growing independence in an environment of understanding, nurturing and care. Thank you Baobab.

After many years of trying to find the right environment for my son Baobab Learner Centre has brought out his true potential in under 2 years. Supportive, inclusive individual support from wonderful teachers and fellow learners has allowed him to find himself and his talents. Camp, Taekwondo, cooking, art therapy and a caring environment have all come together in helping develop a healthy self-esteem in addition to education skills we were told would never be mastered.

My daughter has been at the school for 4 years now. She is in a class with 2 others and 1 teacher so she really gets one on one tuition. The school has done wonders for her confidence. The once shy, non communicating child is now a confident, chatty teenager. She really enjoys the variety of extra-murals: cooking, art and taekwondo.

My son has been at Baobab Learner Centre for the past two years. He has grown so much in the amazing and loving environment. He is happy and secure and this is thanks to all the very special teachers.
