Ashwood CollegeAshwood Secondary College is unique. It's surrounded by playing fields and parkland. (We even have our own wetlands. It's a pleasant and stimulating learning environment that our students value and help to maintain. But its distinction is more than the environment in which we teach. More even, than the teachers and the facilities.
It comes down to one thing: a philosophy. We focus not on teachers, or processes, or efficiencies of scale, but on the student. We always remember that every student is an individual: a unique young person, with all the complexities, ambitions, uncertainties and talents that come with adolescence.
Ours is a personalised environment, a place that's nurturing as well as disciplined. Ashwood Secondary College is a smaller school which allows students to achieve their best with a real sense of community, as well as academic excellence. Our size is part of our philosophy. We like being small and we have roughly equal numbers of girls and boys. Our students are all known as individuals by staff and by each other. The relationship between students, particularly those of different ages, is very important to us. Bullying is not tolerated. We don't accept it; neither do the students.
We have high standards. Our teachers are at the top of their profession. They are committed to ongoing professional development. We're disciplined. Our uniform reflects the pride we have in our school. Fundamental to our philosophy is the idea that no student can interfere with any other student's learning.
Our students have achieved great results, academically of course, but also in ways defined by them, not by the 'system'. Our students have gone on to study Medicine at Melbourne University and others, equally gifted, have become sculptors or jewellers. Our students succeed in the areas in which they want to succeed.
