Siyamukela High School was built in the 20th century and has over the years produced a significant number of professionals. It is one of the schools that were managed and supported by the KwaZulu government prior 1994 as the KwaZulu Enhanced Education Programme (KEEP school). At that time the school had more support from the government and such support produced good results. Through its excellence the school earned recognition from the department of education as one of the ‘Dinaledi schools’ (school of stars). This status is given to schools which are capable of producing good quality science and maths learners.
Most learners who attended SHS have come out and made a success of their lives. A countless number of professionals have been produced by the school and it continues to do so. Most of SHS alumni who did science are either engineers, medical doctors or have another science related qualification. This benefits the country and should the school continue producing such excellent talent, then the country will continue to benefit a lot.
In the early to mid 90’s the school was famous for achieving a 100% matric pass rate every year. Such performance attracted large companies like the Anglo American who through their careerwise programme got involved by giving bursaries to learners who excelled in maths and science.
