Update on Top 10 Best Secondary Schools in Namibia 2017

8. Concordia College

Best Namibian Secondary School

Concordia College is a school in Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. It is situated on Windhoek’s Hochland Road between suburbs of Rocky Crest and Hochland Park. The school facility was privately owned by Consolidated Diamond Mines (CDM, now Namdeb), the Namibian subsidiary of De Beers.

The school was expected to provide education for children judged highly intelligent, with the aim of providing a pool of youths to be educated as teachers. It was operated by the then colonial administration of Namibia. It was the first multi-racial state-operated school in Namibia. Establishment of the facility by De Beers was reflected in the school’s diamond-shaped logo. After independence the school was donated to Government of Namibia. The requirement of an IQ test as a prerequisite for admission was abandoned in 1993.
