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.
Today this vibrant school ranks amongst the finest independent schools in South Africa. Its enrolment of about 1,300 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.
SAHETI School is an English-medium, independent school dedicated to the pursuit of excellence, whilst promoting the ethos and values of Hellenism.
The school motto "Know Thyself", founded in ancient Greek thought, is at the core of the school's ethos. Self-awareness is viewed as the starting point in every pupil's life, without which human potential cannot be realized. From an early age, children are encouraged to discover and build on their unique strengths. This basic requirement for success is what sets SAHETIANS apart as confident, independent thinkers and keen team workers.
