Jeppe High School for Boys is Johannesburg's oldest public school having been established in 1890 in Fairview, Johannesburg. As noted in the book Historic Schools of South Africa "perhaps more than any other Johannesburg school, it reflects the history and the changing character of the city and has always been a melting pot for children of diverse socioeconomic, language and cultural backgrounds".

Recognised as one of South Africa's Top 20 boys' schools, the defining characteristics of the men it produces often centre on the principles of loyalty, honour, and friendship. Jeppe's ability to shape the character of boys into men is its greatest success.
