About Us

The Jon Carnegie School was established in
2006 by former Trinity Grammar School teacher, Dr. Jon Carnegie as an
innovative, ‘real life learning,’ school for those seeking more
than mainstream education
has to offer.


At JCS we celebrate differences and encourage
creativity. Our curriculum is integrated into our personal development
program and is experientially based as well as matching  the
prescribed outcomes
of mainstream education. All students at the school work on
individual learning plans, and progress is measured as much by social
and emotional development as it is by academic achievement. The school
environment is designed to enhance student motivation,
self-esteem and discipline, while maintaining high standards in
numeracy and literacy.


Numbers at the school are kept deliberately
small as we encourage a whole community approach to education which sees
both parents and the wider community involved in aspects of the
education process.
