THE UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL
'Individuality, Diversity, Excellence'
Principal: Mr Robert Newton
The University High School was established in Carlton in 1910. The school caters for approximately 1,180 students, most of whom reside in the local area. A proportion of the school's enrolment comes from further a field, either to participate in special programs like music, the Acceleration Program or as a result of sibling claims. The population has great socio-economic, cultural and ethnic diversity and the school has a genuine commitment to tolerance and to this diversity.
The school's program of accelerated learning for gifted students operates across the full breadth of the curriculum. This pioneer program was developed after several years of research initiated by the Department of Education, and it remains a model for like programs offered elsewhere in Australia.
The Music program also operates across the full breadth of the curriculum and all students are encouraged to participate in the instrumental music program.
