Welcome to Pro Ed House School – for those who learn differently

On behalf of the Pro Ed House School community of children, teachers and therapists, welcome to our website.  We hope that you will explore the information found here and then visit us in person. Upon doing so, we are confident that you will understand why we think that Pro Ed House School is an exceptional learning environment for bright children with learning differences, for the following reasons:

  • Specialised teachers who are not only caring and knowledgeable, but committed to their students and to ongoing professional development, particularly related to students who learn differently.
  • An engaging, research-based instructional programme that reflects excellence and innovation as well as a rich understanding as to how to work with individual learners.
  • A focus on learners’ social and emotional development as well as their cognitive and academic development.
  • An emphasis on developing self-knowledge and self-advocacy skills.
  • A programme that focuses on developing personal characteristics that facilitate learning, thinking and problem solving.
  • Small class sizes (maximum 12/13) with extensive opportunities for differentiation and individual attention.
  • An exciting assortment of extra-curricular activities e.g. art, karate, chess, surfing, soccer, yoga.
  • We offer one of the most personalised learning environments in the country with a 5:1 student/adult ratio.
  • A school with a long-standing record of helping children transform from struggling learners to confident and strategic thinkers, who are successful in school and in life.

Testimonial

"My name is Linda (*). I am 19, have been to three schools and finished matric with a university entrance. I am studying dance, theatre and drama, do modern, tap, ballet, hip hop, jazz and contemporary dance, play violin and piano and did karate. What people don’t know is that I am dyslexic and have ADHD, and my second school was Pro Ed. I also have an extremely short attention span and limited memory. Looking back on my schooling being at Pro Ed was the best use of my time and the best investment my parents could have made for my future."
