Suzanne Cory High School is a proud government high school offering co-educational education for Years 9 to 12 in Melbourne’s western suburbs. The school’s values of Respect, Aspiration and Contribution provide the foundations of the school’s environment.
To be considered for a place at Suzanne Cory High School, students must sit an entrance exam, which is conducted by the Department of Education and Training in June each year.
The educational focus of the school for the 910 enrolled students is to provide a challenging and rigorous academic curriculum for students who are intellectually and creatively gifted. The comprehensive curriculum, teaching and learning model that is followed is based on internationally recognised best-practice research on high levels of student learning achievement.
