St George's bases its curriculum around helping students to flourish in the school community and in society. The curriculum employed in our school is comprehensive and flexible and is delivered in such a way to allow students to self-pace their learning or accelerate.
Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education. — Martin Luther King
The foundation years of high school are a time for students to discover where their interests and talents lie.
Aligned with the Western Australian School Curriculum, our Year 7 and 8 students live out the school motto of Grace, Wisdom and Service through core subjects and signature programs such as Inspired Minds.
In the middle school years, students undertake mandatory core subjects as well as exciting new electives to further align their interests and strengths with the academic, creative and practical pathways. This helps them work towards a career or field in which they want to enter.
These are the pivotal years where studies should ideally be paying off as graduation beckons.
St George's offers a number of pathways for our senior students.
