Stellenbosch Schools

At SAHomeBuyers we understand that finding a perfect property is not the only factor to consider when purchasing a new home. For buyers with children, the home’s proximity to high-quality schools is always one of the top priorities.

A large part of the appeal of  purchasing a property in the picturesque and historic town of Stellenbosch, is the quality of the schools in the area. Stellenbosch is home to the University of Stellenbosch, one of South Africa’s foremost tertiary institutions. As such, it is an academic and cultural centre that is unique in the country. Stellenbosch also has some excellent schools.
