Huntingtower School is an independent, co-educational, non-denominational day school and boarding school, located in the eastern Melbourne suburb of Mount Waverley, Victoria, Australia. It is also a member of the Eastern Independent Schools of Melbourne association.
The school was founded in 1927 as a co-educational day and boarding school for children from Christian Science families. Its first home was in Huntingtower Road, Armadale. In 1953 a new site was purchased in Mount Waverley and the school moved to its new home in 1954. In 1974 the school decided to open its doors to all faiths and is now a school with a Christian Science foundation but has a multi-denominational student body.
The school's internal leadership system currently arranges the school students into six different houses: Bruce (Red), Mather (Blue), Warrell (Yellow), Rayner (Green). The Junior houses are Thomson (Blue and Yellow) and Ruthven (Red and White).
Music and Drama
Huntingtower School has a fine history of performance music and drama, holding house music events annually and either a school play or musical each year. The performing arts centre (P.A.C) is where the school holds productions, as well as hiring it out to the public for use on weekends.
