SPARK Schools is dedicated to providing accessible, internationally comparable quality education to primary age children in South Africa, where the school system is consistently ranked among the most challenged in the world.

SPARK Schools differentiates itself with its use of a blended learning education model, the first of its kind in primary schools on the continent. The method combines computer-based instruction using adaptive software with teacher-led instruction in classroom settings, small groups, and one-on-one instructional time. SPARK Schools invests significantly in the continuing professional support and development of its teachers and also values parental engagement in their schools.

SPARK Schools aims to fundamentally influence the education system in South Africa and beyond by showing that it is possible to deliver a globally comparable quality of education in a non-selective way at a cost that is affordable for parents.
