About our school

At Adelaide East Education Centre we believe that every individual has the right to a quality and equitable education. Every student has a personalised one plan learning goals connected to the relevant curriculums (ABLES, Australian Curriculum and the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)) to meet their individual needs.

Every individual deserves a voice. Our school caters and supports students with complex communication needs.  We seek to develop each student’s individual communication strategies and allow them to express themselves openly.

Our priority is to work with students, families and the community to prepare each student for their optimal post school pathway. Pathways for the future!

Surrounding each playground is landscaped gardens. We also have a separate garden bed area where students can plant, nurture and learn.
