Murwillumbah High School offers a comprehensive curriculum to students from 12 to 18 years of age with special needs.
Students participate in Personalised Learning Plans, which are negotiated through a Transition Process.
Some of the areas covered are: Vocational Education and Training; Functional Academics; Community Access Programs; Living Skills and Transport and Mobility.
Through this process students are able to integrate into mainstream subjects which they are particularly interested: e.g. Music, Drama, P.E., Design and Technology.

Students benefit from a caring, supportive environment that promotes the development of skills that will lead to a fulfilling, enjoyable and active life.
