The class of 2013 of the affiliated high school to the University of Johannesburg (UJ), UJ Metropolitan Academy, produced a 100% pass rate with the release of the Grade 12 results. This is the 19th year a 100% pass rate was obtained since the School’s inception 21 years ago in 1992.
UJ Metropolitan Academy, a school in Crosby, near Brixton in Johannesburg, caters for selected high-school learners from disadvantaged communities who demonstrate potential for success in studies at higher education institutions.
A total of 188 distinctions particularly in mathematics, science, economics and accounting, are among the reaped fruits. 87.5 % of the 88 learners who wrote the National Senior Certificate examinations qualify for Bachelor’s degrees and 12.5 % for National Diplomas.
“The success of the school can be contributed to strong and visionary leadership and committed teachers who care deeply about the academic and personal well-being of the learners,” says Professor Saartjie Gravett, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Education at the University. The Faculty serves as the school’s custodian.
