Korowal School: Non-denominational, co-educational, Kindergarten to HSC




Korowal School, Blue Mountains Australia


Korowal is a small school

... a community on a human scale, where teachers, parents and students know each other ... where learning accommodates the talents and needs of every student ... where no-one gets lost.

Korowal is a human-centred school

... where relationships are the heart of the learning process ... where we educate the whole human being in a holistic way ... where we value empathy, creativity, resilience and critical thinking.

Korowal is a sustainable school

... where we aim for social, educational and environmental sustainability ... where we value quality over quantity and context over content ... where we allow time for childhood ... where students are not ranked against each other ... because education is not a race.

Korowal is an integrated school

... where the curriculum encourages immersion and interdisciplinary study ... where creative and formal work are integrated ... where learning groups transcend age boundaries.
