SAHETI School was established in 1974 by a group of founders under the leadership of Advocate George Bizos. Its doors were open to all, welcoming widely diverse communities to share in its values-driven, universal education.

The campus has evolved as part of a unique design, which has attracted much attention and even professional recognition in the form of awards from the Institute of South African Architects. From the outset, SAHETI's approach to education was dynamic and innovative. The school has become known for its enlightened teaching methods, consistent academic excellence and rich cultural life.

The expansive grounds have allowed for development of enviable sports facilities, to cater for a wide variety of activities.

Its enrolment of about 1300 boys and girls is spread over a Playschool, Pre-Primary School, Primary School and High School.

SAHETI is situated in Senderwood, Bedfordview, on the eastern outskirts of Johannesburg.
