The Afrikaans Hogere Skool was established on 28 January 1920, in the house of General PJ Joubert. The address was 218 Visagie street, Pretoria. It was considered as a rebel school because it was the first Afrikaans-language secondary school. Afrikaans was not an official language in South Africa then. The school opened its doors for boys and girls. A new school building was inaugurated on 26 January 1927 and in 1930, separate schools for girls and boys, Afrikaanse Hoër Meisieskool and Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool respectively, were established. The school's motto, "Ek sien haar wen", is derived from Jan F.E. Celliers's poem "By die vrouebetoging".
