Black Mountain School (BMS) is a centre of excellence in the field of special education. We are a specialist secondary school (years 7 - 12) for students with an intellectual disability. We provide a functional curriculum to support students to reach their maximum potential and independence.
We deliver a quality, individualised education providing social, life and work skills that facilitate students' participation in a full and satisfying post-school life.
We have close to 110 students each year with an intellectual disability, many with additional diagnoses such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), physical disability, communication difficulties and/or complex medical conditions.
We offer many exciting and innovative programs to support every student to reach their optimum post-school life potential. These programs include the launch of Compass, building strong secondary education through specialised services.
