David Scott School
Our David Scott School (DSS) is a registered, independent school for disadvantaged young people. It opened its doors in early 2017 to Year 10, 11 and 12 students.
Helping young people reach their goals
In 2019 the school won the regional annual Best Practice School Award from the Frankston Mornington Peninsula Local Learning and Employment Network (FMPLLEN).
This specialist education program is taught in a friendly, community setting. The hands-on and flexible curriculum for this accredited certificate is delivered as an integrated program to meet the literacy, numeracy, work-related and personal development needs of young people, to help them on the road to employment or further training.
The David Scott School is based in a thriving community centre in Frankston in Melbourne’s south, but also encourages learning outside the classroom, to promote positive links between young people and the community.
The program specialises in innovative learning via ‘real world’ projects that integrate many elements of the curriculum.
Led by a dedicated team
Our connection with our young people does not end when they graduate. We continue to support them to ensure a successful transition to further education, training or employment.
Who is eligible?
Young people between the ages of 15 and 19 who want to complete secondary school, who are better suited to a flexible educational program outside of a mainstream school are eligible to apply.
