List of schools in rural Western Australia

Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of schools in the state of Western Australia, located outside the Perth metropolitan area. The Western Australian education system traditionally consists of primary schools, which accommodate students from kindergarten to Year 7 (ages 5–12), and high schools, which accommodate students from Years 8 to 12 (ages 13–17). A number of variations exist, however—the Catholic school system and some newer public schools move students from primary to high school at the end of Year 6, whilst in country areas, District High Schools serve as both a primary and a junior high school, with students generally commuting to or boarding at larger towns to finish the last two years of their education.

District high schools[edit]

The term "district high school" in Western Australia typically means a primary school combined with a high school on the one campus which services the educational needs of a rural district. The term came into use in the 1970s; prior to this, such schools were either known as "Junior High Schools" or simply "Schools" (covering the same range of years), or "Primary Schools" which were limited to year 7, and started serving high school students only upon becoming DHSs.
