Preshil is a small school with small class sizes. It is a K-12 progressive, none-denominational, co-educational school with afterschool care and extended hours for the Nursery School available.
A rich and engaging curriculum is provided across all year levels leading to a focussed and supportive VCE program
At our core remains an unshakeable commitment to encouraging all children to progress at their own pace towards their own goals and to be respected as individuals in their own right.
A commitment to our children to be nurtured and challenged in an atmosphere that inspires creativity and independent thinking in all areas of life and does not, overtly or subtly, use competition or punishment to motivate through the fear of failure.
As global citizens we encourage an awareness of world issues and encourage effort to make a positive difference.
We believe that education should prepare students to be thoughtful, peace-loving and active citizens of the world.
Preshil will remain a school that puts kindness, compassion and social relationships at the centre of its operations.
At Preshil, children take an active role in their education; freedom with responsibility fosters this capacity. Our motto of “Courage” leads to a culture which is characterised as the courage to question and look for new answers.
In years 7-10 Preshil offers a program based on the *IB Middle Years Program which is challenging and perfectly suited to the individuality and creativity the school seeks to develop.
Preshil offers all the traditional subjects for an academic VCE as well as VET subjects.
Because Preshil students have learned how to think they can approach the challenges of VCE with confidence and maturity.
By learning in an environment similar to university, students gain experience working in smaller, tutorial-style groups and develop a closer relationship with their teachers.
