Mount Lawley Senior High School is one of the premier schools in Western Australia. Founded in 1955, the school has a rich history of student success and achievement. This tradition continues with a continued commitment to the achievement of personal best and excellence in all aspects of school life.

At Mount Lawley Senior High School it is our expectation that all students will undertake further education and or training after Year 12. Importantly, we are committed to the provision of learning programs that cater for all post-school destinations, including University, Technical and Further Education and employment.

The students of our school are provided a broad and rich learning experience with a focus on academic excellence, personal growth and development and an enriching social experience. The challenge for students is to take up these opportunities and realise their potential.

The school has a focus in Languages other than English and is a Special Language School for students from across the metropolitan area. Students are able to undertake studies in Italian, Indonesian, Spanish, French, German and Chinese. The school offers more languages than any other school.

The Arts are also a special focus of the school with Music, Visual Arts, Drama and Media Studies programs on offer. The school offers a Special Visual and Performing Arts Program to students in the school boundary and neighbouring regions.

The Information Technology programs are not limited to the teaching of computing skills. In recent years extensive learning opportunities have been introduced for students to acquire computer knowledge and skills. The school has introduced many innovative ways of using Information Technology to enhance the teaching and learning process. Student learning is supported by a modern network that allows student access from across the school.

The students of Mount Lawley Senior High School are provided with a wide range of learning opportunities and experiences in all learning areas as well as extra-curricular activities that enrich and broaden the learning experience. This includes sports, leadership opportunities, peer support, mentoring, community service and international exchange.

The school has undergone an extensive re-building and re-development program. The result is a state-of the art school of the future with outstanding facilities to support student learning. The school is also re-designing educational programs in the middle and senior schools to better respond to the needs of students in this new century.

A major strength of the school community is its strong links and partnerships with parents and the broader community. Parents continue to play a key role in planning for the future and participate in all aspects of school life.

Mount Lawley Senior High School is an excellent school with a bright and magnificent future. Our commitment to the school community is to provide the highest quality learning experience to all of our students.
