Greenwood College (formerly Greenwood Senior High School) is an Independent Public School (Secondary) located in the northern suburb of Greenwood in Perth, Western Australia. It caters for year 7 to 12, Intensive English and USE[note 1] students.

History[edit]

Greenwood Senior High School was established in 1975 to serve the community of Greenwood.[6] It is part of the Government of Western Australia's Department of Education Independent Public School (IPS) system. In 2012, it changed its name to Greenwood College as part of the IPS process.

Co-curricular and extracurricular programs[edit]

The school offers a number of opportunities for enrolled students, including sports, co-curricular programs, and an aviation program.

Volleyball[edit]

Since 1995 the Physical Education Department has successfully promoted volleyball as an elite sport. Currently seventy Year 8 students are taking part in the first stage of the five year intensive volleyball program.

Aviation[edit]

The Greenwood College Aeronautics & Aviation program provides an excellent foundation for further University, TAFE and ADFA courses related to aviation. Graduates from the Aeronautics program may gain credit points for the Aeronautics course at Edith Cowan University.

International Program[edit]

The Greenwood College International Program has been gradually growing since its beginnings in 2007. Currently there are over 20[citation needed] international students at the school who come from countries such as China, Japan, Thailand, Korea, Indonesia and Iran.

Students can choose to study in the Intensive English Center (IEC) or in the mainstream high school. Many students commence their studies in the IEC and then continue on in the mainstream to further their studies in Years 8 – 12.[citation needed]

Intensive English Center[edit]

The Intensive English Center (IEC) was established at Greenwood in 2007 after moving from its former location at Perth Modern. The Centre caters for the needs of students aged between 12 and 16 years of age, recently arrivals of migrant, refugee and international fee paying backgrounds in Western Australia from about 40 different national backgrounds and languages.
