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.
