Kariong Mountains High School opened in 2010 with a cohort of Years 7 and 8 students and will be fully established (Yrs 7-12) by 2014. The school has been purpose built (through Public-Private Partnerships) to support the study of the biosciences, both at school and through vocational education opportunities. Our school provides your child with extensive academic, sporting and cultural opportunities in a supportive learning environment. Our innovative programs ensure that your child is challenged to reach their full potential both in the core curriculum and through the biosciences and technology focus areas. A welcoming and friendly school, we work in close partnership with parents and the wider community to develop best practice programs. Parents are encouraged to be active participants in school activities and to have valued input into their childs education. A number of partnerships exist to support vocational pathways and these will be expanded as the school grows, including close links with the University of Newcastle. Our school is well resourced and provides students access to the latest technologies and vocational education facilities to enhance their learning. All students have access to specialist facilities, a comprehensive sports program and co-curricular activities including band, choir, debating, drama and dance group. Our school values diversity, recognises and celebrates our Aboriginal heritage and prepares students for taking on the challenges of living in twenty-first century Australia. Our focus on effective welfare, learning support and gifted and talented programs ensures that students feel safe, are respected and respect the rights of others, thus creating a learning environment that encourages students to strive for excellence and receive recognition for what they achieve.

Students with disability and additional learning and support needs

The New South Wales Department of Education and Communities support students with disability and additional learning and support needs in public schools in a range of ways. This may include specialist support classes for students in regular and special schools; the Integration, Funding Support program which provides targeted funding for eligible students; and learning and support resourcing. Every regular public school in NSW receives a specialist teacher allocation and flexible funding based on the size of the school and the learning needs of their students.

You can discuss your child's learning needs and planning for their personalised learning and support with the principal of your child's school. For more information about the full range of support services in NSW public schools go to Disability, Learning & Support.
