Crystal Park Prestige College in Benoni opened its doors in January 2017 starting an exhilarating journey for learners from Grades RRR-9. The first day introduced the Prestige way of Exceptional, Quality and Affordable Education to learners, teachers and parents.
In January 2018, we will welcome our first class of Grade 10s and will continue to phase in the other high school grades in 2019.
Message from the principal
I have been a resident of Crystal Park for over 22 years and have witnessed developments in this quaint part of Benoni. It gives me such great pleasure to head this excellent school and to see my community reaching greater heights. With all my experience in Education for over 30 years, I am exceedingly enthusiastic about making a significant difference in the lives of all learners, parents and staff.
As a very proud Principal of this school, I thank you for visiting our website.

Student expresses her experience at Prestige College Crystal Park
A wise man once said “Treat everyone with respect and kindness period, no exceptions”. Ladies and gentlemen, may you please give me two minutes of your time so I can briefly tell you about my experience in Prestige College. From the first day I entered those gates… what a scary experience it was? New environment, new teachers, new outlook, new principal (who is female wow… what a change) and obviously new friends. Honestly speaking the past few weeks have been phenomenal… especially the inter-house athletics. Although the green team won, red and yellow team, we will do better next time!
Who would have known that starting afresh would be so amazing? From my experience, Prestige College is a school of discipline and hard work oh yeah! we pull our weight, there is no time to play. And yes for most of us we’ve never been in an environment that puts you closer to God all the time. One may ask, “Why do we pray every morning and in the afternoon?” We have values assembly that gives us direction on how we should behave as Prestigians.
The most amazing thing about being a Prestigian is the privilege of using tablets, Wow! our tablets are really useful than carrying books around. Our teachers can upload videos and extra work on our tablets and speaking about teachers, we have the most wonderful, most loving and most tolerant teachers ever.
“A good teacher is like a candle, it consumes itself to light the way for others”, we love and respect our teachers for that. In Prestige College it is always emphasized that if you don’t respect yourself you won’t respect the next person and you will also fail to respect God. And in closing
allow me to say… to be continued!
It’s still a long way from where we began so I’ll tell you all when I see you again.
