A close-knit community
Korowa has a student population of around 700. We offer classes from three year old ELC to Year 12. Our students travel from more than 60 postcodes across Melbourne each day and we are proud of the diverse nature of our community.
The School Structure is made up of:
- Our Junior School with the Early Learning Centre (a 3 year old and a 4 year old program)
- Students from Prep to Year 5
- Students in Years 6 to 8 form our Middle School
- Students in Years 9 to 12 complete the Senior School
Our class sizes vary according to need and circumstance. We maintain small class sizes, particularly in the earlier years where establishing literacy and numeracy is so critical. In older years, 25 students per class tends to be our maximum but, in practice, there are fewer students in most classes.
In the early years (3 and 4 year old ELC), our program is underpinned by the play-based Reggio Emilia education philosophy. As students progress to Prep and beyond, our curriculum is underpinned by an inquiry stance on student learning.
Teaching is student-centred, drawing on the natural curiosity and interests of students to engage them in the learning process.
In addition to traditional core subjects in the Middle School, we have developed two unique subjects - 'Approaches to Learning' and 'Sense Cycles'. The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is offered in the Senior School.
Campus & Facilities
Korowa enjoys a pleasant and compact campus which contains the full range of facilities necessary to cater for all areas of study and interests.
- In addition to modern, dedicated buildings for the Junior, Middle and Senior Schools, all students access our new Science Wing and Food Technology Centre, our Music School, drama studios and vast Assembly Hall.
- Students in Years 11 and 12 have their own VCE Centre which includes study areas, a café and a theatrette.
- Information Resources Centres are located in the Junior and Senior School, as are Visual Arts facilities.
- Two gymnasia, a 25m heated indoor swimming pool, a grassed oval, tennis and netball/basketball courts and well tended gardens and playgrounds complete the campus.
Whilst located away from the hustle and bustle of major city roads, Korowa is conveniently situated near numerous public transport options.
We are only five minutes walk from Glen Iris station and even less from tram stops on High Street and Wattletree Road. Glen Iris station is on the Glen Waverley line, with a trip from the CBD taking less than 30 minutes and even less if travelling from Glen Waverley.
Buses from Camberwell, Box Hill, Chadstone, Ashburton and Glen Waverley all stop at Glen Iris station. There is a bus from Caulfield station. We also offer two private bus services, an Eastern line that travels from Wantirna through Glen Waverley and a South Eastern line that travels from Berwick through Rowville and Mulgrave.
Korowa students earn admission into the most selective tertiary institutions in the country. Typically, all students seeking university entry gain a first round offer each year.
Korowa girls are not limited to traditional post-school options. Each year Korowa graduates embark on tertiary studies as diverse as medicine, business and design. Some take up cadetships with top level companies, sharing their time between study and work.
