Opened in 1960 and set in the hills and forest area of Perth, Kalamunda Senior High School is a long established school with proud traditions. Drawing on the hills and surrounding suburbs, the school has a strong sense of community stretching across three generations.
The school is a close knit community which is now into its third generation of hills families. Some of our past students have returned to Kalamunda as staff members. Not surprisingly, one of Kalamunda’s values is “Community” which, along with our other values of “Respect, Resilience, Love of Learning and Pride”, is encompassed in our efforts to achieve our vision of Sharing our Forest of Possibilities.
All students are welcome at Kalamunda Senior High School. We offer a high quality education in a positive, nurturing environment.
Some of the specialist options available to lower school students at Kalamunda Senior High School include:
- Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) – Visual Arts Program
