Carine Senior High School (4057)

School Overview

Carine Senior High School is an Independent Public School and school of choice in the northern suburbs of Perth.

In 2018, our principal, Damian Shuttleworth (WA Secondary Principal of the Year) and head of science Daniel Hugo (WA Secondary Teacher of the Year) were both recognised for their outstanding leadership and teaching skills. In 2017, our school was named the WA Secondary School of the Year.

Our team of committed and professional specialist teaching staff provide quality educational programs to young people who can focus on a range of flexible pathways. Our different learning environments include the school, training organisations, university and the workplace. We also deliver a varied curriculum - including our surfing, snorkelling and sailing programs which take advantage of our beachside location.

Our school has a rich tradition of service to the local, national and international community, with our graduates striving to be conscientious global citizens. Our students are provided with opportunities and support to achieve excellence in an extensive range of school-based academic, music, sporting, cultural, leadership and community service programs.

Our school community is positive and caring. A dedicated team of professionals support our students' emotional well-being. Our students are recognised and rewarded for their accomplishments. Your involvement in your child's education is welcomed and encouraged as we believe strongly in the importance of open, honest and supportive links between family and school.

New building facilities were completed at the end of 2019 providing the school with a 300 seat lecture theatre, new STEM classrooms with state of the art equipment, outdoor basketball courts and new grounds for the students to enjoy.

Carine has been lucky enough to receive a further building project approval which is set to start in 2021. This will cater for our growing student numbers as Carine becomes a school of choice.

Carine improved once again in the ATAR rankings, rising 4 spots to 8th public school with a median ATAR of 82.9 and continues to stay in the top 50 of all schools (ranked 32nd).

2020 saw the implementation of our selective Gifted and Talented program. This will grow next year to include year 7 and 8 students.
