Curriculum

Rutasetjhaba Secondary School is a government school and operates under the Gauteng Department of Education. The curriculum is broadly governed by the provisions of the Senior and FET and curriculum documents. Pupils write the National Senior Certificate Examination in (Grade 12), being the public examination, which for successful candidates, results in the awarding of a school-leaving certificate.

The school is fortunate to always be fully staffed with suitably-qualified teachers. The policy on class sizes is to limit these to a maximum of thirty pupils, although in senior classes there will generally be fewer than this number. In terms of physical facilities, the school has, in addition to standard classrooms, access to a full range of specialised rooms including science laboratories.

There is adequate physical accommodation for pupils and teachers, with the number of teachers who share classrooms being kept to an absolute minimum. This philosophy of the school is to pursue high academic standard and to extend pupils academically. Research Assignments are set within most subjects.
