A strong public education system is the cornerstone of every successful society. We provide high quality education for children and young people throughout Western Australia, helping them reach their full potential.
We have more than 800 schools in communities across our State – in bustling city and regional centres and in some of the most remote parts of the world. Comprehensive schools, selective schools and education support schools. As our population grows, we're building new schools and developing state-of-the-art facilities for children to learn in. Modern schools using the latest and emerging technologies.
Each school, like each community, is distinctive. Parents and communities play a key role in creating a unique ethos for their school. They help shape the school's directions. The principal selects the best teachers and support staff for the school and funding is driven by the learning needs of students.
