Deer Park Secondary College was established in 1973. It is currently a medium size, single campus, co-educational secondary college with an enrolment of approximately 580 students. It is situated twenty kilometres west of the centre of Melbourne, in a well established residential suburb, with new housing developments in close proximity at Cairnlea, Burnside and Caroline Springs in the City of Brimbank.
The school is set in well-maintained and attractive grounds. The physical appearance of the school is enhanced by the native gardens and trees. Over a million dollars has been spent in recent years on maintenance and purpose- built facilities. The buildings are well maintained and equipped. The College has a computer network, two fully equipped computer laboratories, a bank of networked computers in the library, an increasing number of computers in classrooms (linked to the Internet), plans for E-mail access for all students, and community access, in order to provide links between the College and students’ homes. The school facilitates will be further enhanced if the proposal to build two new netball/basketball courts, a volunteer – Leadership centre, a homework and E-learning centre, a skateboard park and bocce courts is successful. This is a joint proposal with Brimbank Council, Recrosport, Community West and Sunshine Police, and Youth and Citizens Club.
The College provides a caring and supportive learning environment with a curriculum that prepares students for life in a changing society, and challenges students to strive to achieve their personal best.
