The Berry Street School believes all children have the right to a high quality education that prepares them to achieve their full potential and go into their future with confidence and hope.
The Berry Street School offers an adaption of the Victorian Curriculum for years 7 to 10 and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) for our senior students in years 11 to 12.
Our teaching is flexible and personalised: every student has an Individual Education Plan with clear learning goals and outcomes, as well as broad life and behaviour goals. These plans help ensure success for every student. Our goal is that all young people can contribute to their community in meaningful ways.
I now love reading because I can choose books that interest me and share my passion with others.
We take a practical approach to teaching and learning that allows teachers to engage students who need specialist support. Using the Berry Street Education Model (BSEM), we can improve all students':
- self-regulation (how they manage their responses and reactions)
- academic achievement.
I am so happy to see my daughter's personal and academic growth during the past two years.
