Area School is a Reception - 12 school that provides a challenging
learning environment in which all students' talents can be fostered.
Our school serves families living along the northern coastal strip
of eastern Yorke Peninsula. Local employment is centred on
retailing, mining, agriculture and health services.
The school's values are success, respect and fairness. Our
students strive to be productive learners who are well equipped
to meet future challenges in the local and global community. Most students complete all of their education at the school. We have close links with the kindergarten. The school is well resourced and a high value is placed on information and communication technology.
Programs that support sport, music and outdoor learning are in place across the school. Senior school programs are tailored to an individual student's needs enabling them to pursue university pathways, vocational education and training options, and school-based apprenticeships. Courses are also accessed from other local schools, the open access college and registered training organisations.
