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.
