Ashwood School


Ashwood School is a coeducational school for primary and secondary aged students that provides a progressive, dynamic and supportive yet challenging environment. We equip students with mild intellectual disabilities with the skills and knowledge to become valued members of the community. Individual Education Learning programs ensure our students are engaged to achieve their personal best concentrating on building social, communication, independence and vocational skills to ensure a successful post school life.
All class sizes reflect the learning needs of students with 6 to 13 students in each class. The school is organised into three departments: Primary, Secondary and Senior Secondary. The school follows the Victorian Curriculum and VCAL is offered in the Senior Secondary years.
Ashwood has a school mascot called RIPOR who represents the school values of Respect, Integrity, Passion, Optimism and Responsibility. The school also has adopted the School Wide Positive Behaviour Support Program and explicitly teaches the three expectations of Be Safe, Be a Learner and Be Responsible.
