Eunice High School is a girls' boarding school/day school in Bloemfontein, South Africa. The language of instruction is English. In 2015 Eunice was recognised as the Top Performing Public School in South Africa. [1]


Originally named the Oranje Vrij Staat Dames Instituut, the school was founded in 1875 on the initiative of the Dutch Reformed Church. The name Eunice is a biblical reference to the mother of Timothy in the New Testament. It is a Greek word meaning "happy victory". Eunice was founded in the Scottish education tradition. Its first headmistress was summoned from Stirling to replicate Scottish standards and values in Bloemfontein.[citation needed]
