A BRIEF HISTORY
Highlands Primary School (formerly known as Middelburg Christian School) was founded in 1998 in church classrooms with an intake of 25 learners. Over time the school has grown from strength to strength. Today we have our very own 4-hectare property at 1 Ametis Crescent, Extension 18, Middelburg, which was donated to the school by the Steve Tshwete Local Municipality. Thanks to God's grace upon the vision of the school and the generosity of many stakeholders, the school boasts current facilities of excellent quality and standard to accommodate over 200 learners. Our premisis can further accommodate future development of sports fields and facilities, more classrooms, a school hall and more playgrounds.

To be a school of excellence built upon the life-giving doctrines, principles and values presented to us in the bible.
