Enrolment Criteria

At Montague School, we believe in providing a nurturing and inclusive educational environment tailored to the unique needs of students with mild intellectual disabilities. Our school is dedicated to fostering a supportive community where every student is valued, respected, and empowered to reach their full potential.

We welcome students with mild intellectual disabilities, recognising the importance of personalised attention, specialised instruction, and individualised support. Our curriculum is carefully designed to cater to diverse learning styles and abilities, ensuring that each student receives the necessary accommodations and adaptations to succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.

Our enrolment process is designed to be inclusive, accessible, and supportive for both students and their families. We understand that transitioning to a new school can be a significant step, and we are committed to providing guidance, assistance, and resources every step of the way.

Upon enrolment, students and their families can expect:

Personalised Assessment: We conduct thorough assessments to understand each student’s strengths, challenges, interests, and goals. This enables us to develop individualised learning plans tailored to their needs.

Collaborative Planning: We work closely with students, families, and support networks to develop personalised education plans that address academic, social, and transitional goals. Our team includes experienced educators, counsellors, therapists, and support staff who collaborate to ensure holistic support.

Specialised Instruction: Our curriculum emphasises functional academics, life skills, social skills, and vocational training, preparing students for greater independence and success beyond the classroom. We offer small class sizes, differentiated instruction, and evidence-based teaching strategies to meet diverse learning needs.

Supportive Environment: We foster a welcoming and supportive school culture where students feel safe, accepted, and empowered to express themselves. Our staff are trained to provide positive behavior support, social-emotional learning, and conflict resolution strategies to promote a positive school climate.

Transition Planning: We recognise the importance of transition planning and offer comprehensive support to prepare students for life beyond high school. Our transition services include career exploration, job readiness training, community-based instruction, and collaboration with agencies and employers to facilitate successful transitions to post-secondary education, employment, and independent living.

Family Engagement: We value the partnership between school and home and encourage open communication, collaboration, and involvement from families. We provide opportunities for family education, support groups, workshops, and regular updates on student progress.

At Montague School, we are committed to empowering students with mild intellectual disabilities to achieve their goals, build meaningful relationships, and lead fulfilling lives. We welcome all students and families to join our community and embark on a journey of growth, learning, and success together.
