Centre of Excellence coming in 2021

Monterey Secondary College is situated in Frankston North and services the areas of Karingal, Skye, Carrum Downs, Seaford, Frankston and Frankston North. Along with Aldercourt Primary and Mahogany Rise Primary the schools form the Frankston North Schools Alliance as part of the Frankston North Education Plan (FNEP). The $26.2 million plan is an investment in new facilities, resources and staff, and involves a partnership between the Schools, the Frankston City Council, the Department of Education and the Colman Foundation. The plan will deliver quality education and improved outcomes using a birth-to-adult model and the schools will act as the platform for the delivery of health and welfare services with dual community use facilities, along with a vision that “Every child and family is successful in learning and life”. Under the plan, in 2021 Monterey Secondary College will open the Centre of Excellence, with high quality Teaching and Learning across all domains and a select entry Sport and Health Sciences stream. Multiple partners will be engaged to provide extended learning programs and opportunities both before, during and after the school day. Purposefully designed, resource rich, flexible spaces incorporating indoor and outdoor learning areas exist across the school and will continue to be built and developed over the next 18 months culminating in the opening of new buildings and a stadium at the start of the 2021 school year. These state of the art facilities will be utilized to deliver engaging curriculum and programs. A strong and meaningful transition program ensures a smooth and seamless flow through the Frankston North Education Precinct for local students, whilst partnerships, outreach and further transition programs support student enrolments from primary schools outside of the precinct and within the College enrolment zone. Monterey Secondary College fosters a highly positive learning environment that successfully caters to a diverse student cohort and accommodates for all with a range of pathways and programs. The College recognizes that students have specific learning needs and make progress at different rates. The challenges of becoming a lifelong learner, pursuing further study, successfully entering the workplace and being a responsible member of society face all students. The school assists students and staff to meet these challenges and be not only responsible individuals who are able to relate to family, friends and colleagues, but informed citizens, who understand and contribute to the community in which they live and the wider world around them. The Frankston North Education Plan will deliver community transformation in Frankston North and maintains an unrelenting focus on improving outcomes through high quality teaching and learning. Monterey Secondary College seeks staff to join their team who share this passion and are genuinely committed to working with young people in the school and aspire to the vision of the Frankston North Education Plan, that “Every child and family is successful in learning and life.”
