Hilton College, more commonly referred to as Hilton, is a private boarding school for boys located near the town of Hilton in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands which includes a wildlife reserve.
Hilton College was ranked 4th out of the top 100 best high schools in Africa by Africa Almanac in 2003, based upon quality of education, student engagement, strength and activities of alumni, school profile, internet and news visibility.
According to Gallie, only 2-5% of South Africa’s population can afford the fees of the schools listed above. He says that the current structure of the education system dictates that if you’ve got more money, you have a better education.
Gallie advises that it need not be that the quality of South African education be linked to the amount of money parents spend.
