Rowville Secondary College opened in 1990 with approximately 180 students in Years 7 and 8. In 2003, the student population has grown to approximately 1750 across two campuses.
The Western Campus, which opened in 1990, caters for students in Years 7 to 12. The Eastern Campus opened in 1996, catering in its first year to students in Years 7 and 8, and is now offering Years 7 - 10.
Although the College is located on two campuses, Rowville Secondary College is one school. Uniform, rules, curriculum, policies and programs are the same on both campuses and staff will take consistent approaches in dealing with all students. Teachers from both campuses meet together, and all curriculum planning meetings are held as one school. All College committees including the College Council have representation from each campus in order for all decisions and College directions to represent the views of staff, students and parents in the College as a whole.
Although the total enrolment is large, the enrolment at each campus is smaller than many of our neighbouring schools. Our class sizes are kept to a maximum of 26 in most cases with some classes being smaller than this.
Students on each campus will be provided with the opportunity to take part in all College activities such as instrumental music, sport, outdoor education and other extra curricular activities.
