At Rosella Park School we understand that our school is a community made up of learners with varying and individual needs. Because we aim to support the development of the whole person, learning at Rosella Park embraces the vision that every child can learn.
Rosella Park School has a quality curriculum which aligns to departmental expectations and we assess learning outcomes using a variety of testing instruments dependent upon individual ability. Your child’s education may be progressed through approaches focussing on academic, functional, social emotional skills, vocational or communication skills. As with all schools, we undertake a regular process of reflection to identify how we can further improve the delivery of a quality education in a safe and supportive environment to all students.
Rosella Park School, as one of Gladstone's leading providers of Special Education, has a strong post-schooling pathways focus with an excellent and consistent record of student achievement. Ours is a strong and supportive community with the capacity to get to know and care for the individual student. We provide attention and assistance to each child to be the best they can be.
