A special school is a school catering for students who have special educational needs due to severe learning difficulties, physical disabilities or behavioural problems. Special needs schools offer a conducive environment for students in comparison to when they would be given access to typical classroom education.
South Africa does provide public special education schools. These schools typically do have a slightly higher tuition fee as they need to employ teachers and staff who are adequately equipped to handle special needs children. There are also private special education schools throughout South Africa.
