Black Mountain School is a secondary specialist school providing innovative and engaging learning programs for students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities. Students are catered for throughout the school with specialised programs in communication, sensory development, functional literacy and numeracy, and personal and social development.
The school's curriculum is underpinned by the goals of capacity-building for independence, maximum participation, and quality of life. The curriculum seeks to enable our students by providing a framework that teaches functional skills that is consistent with evidence-based curriculum practice and reflects high expectations and enhances support for teachers and parents, and promotes evidence-based pedagogy.
The school has a particular focus on successful transitions to post-school life. Work education programs are offered both within the school and in external work environments including horticulture, hydroponics, recycling, silk shop, office and clerical, and hospitality and canteen.
The school's excellent range of facilities including a hydrotherapy pool, 'Liberty Swing', sensory garden, upgraded home science area, horticulture training centre, sustainability centre and extended gym support the curriculum. Neighbouring high schools complete peer support, peer leadership, and community service programs at the schools, building the social and spiritual capital of the school. This has resulted in greater opportunities in post-school life for our graduates.
