Unique Study Methodology. Remedying the “missing link?in Education. The barriers that prevent full understanding have been identified. Methods have been devised to overcome these barriers resulting in people who can study anything and use it correctly At Summerhill we aim for 100% understanding and performance. Summerhill Preparatory School was established by a group of parents in 1992, with only 12 pupils, as a non-racial, non-denominational, registered private school dedicated to excellence.The original purpose of the school was to teach children effectively by means of a revolutionary study method.Today the school is recognized as one of the best preparatory schools in its area and consists of 350 pupils from Kindergarten (3yrs-6yrs) to Grade 7. All academic staff have educational diplomas or degrees, and are fully-trained in a study technology unique to this school in Gauteng. Students, as well as parents, are also trained in these study methods, so that a tight team with a common purpose exists. The school is situated in Midrand, Johannesburg.This school is part of the prime residential and business area which stretches from Kyalami Estates, through Beaulieu, Carlswald and Blue Hills. Unprecedented development in the area has prompted the decision to build a new campus on the school's 8,5 hectare property, which include a College.
