Blackwood High School
Located in the charming foothills of Adelaide, Blackwood High School offers the world class International Baccalaureate curriculum IB Middle Years Program
Opened in 1961, the school has served the local community for over 50 years, gaining a reputation for high academic standards, high participation rates for sports, and an active arts program. Girls can apply to join the Special Interest Netball program which, in collaboration with Netball SA, focuses on skill development and offers students a high level of competition. Our theme, The Culture of Achievement and Respect, helps to guide our students to achieve their personal best and learn how to live their life with respect and dignity. Our curriculum is supported by a wireless network enabling students to connect and learn with the world.
Middle Years Programme (MYP)
Blackwood High School offers the IBMYP in Grades 8-10. Some of our students come to our school having started the IBMYP in Grades 6 and 7 at an IBMYP primary school, while others simply begin the program once joining us. Blackwood High School also works collaboratively in an IBMYP partnership with Coromandel Valley Primary school to undertake curriculum planning, review and scope and sequencing. The school has strong curriculum programs in all areas of the MYP, this includes a number of opportunities in The Arts, Design and HPE. The Grade 10 IBMYP Personal Project is a particular strength at the school, with a large display being held each year in early Term 3.
