Our daughter has been at Ascot Vale Heights School for the last 10 years - since she was in Prep. Before making the move to the school we did our homework due to her rare intellectual and physical disability. She is now a very happy child, always up early getting ready and wanting to go to school.

We were impressed from our first walk around the school!!! The way the teachers and front office staff interact with the students and seeing their response is very rewarding. To see their artwork and achievements displayed around the school is inspiring for all.

The specialised programs / electives that the school offers in both junior and senior years will amaze both you and your child. As parents you want your child to be independent and ready for life / work once school is completed and, like you, the school is always wanting the very best for your child. It is never too early to discuss your child's interests so you can help them accomplish their goals.

Our daughter has come a long way, in leaps and bounds. The teachers are always challenging students at their own level catering to their individual needs. The school motto is 'Learning for Life' and, as a parent, you cannot ask for any more.

We really recommend you arrange a visit in person. You will know if it is the right school for your child.

We came across this school 3 years ago. Any reservations we had about finding the ‘right school’ quickly disappeared after taking a tour. What we found was a friendly, caring and supportive staff who are approachable and work hard to make learning fun and tailor learning to a range of abilities and needs. We were drawn to the fantastic range of programs – from the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program, to the social play space, swimming, bike riding, music, art, sport and well organised excursions.

Our daughter loves going to school and has thrived with all of the hands-on learning experiences. She has made friends and has become more confident and independent.

This is a fantastic school – we couldn’t have hoped for a better environment for our child.

Hi. I'm Eliza, I'm autistic and I've been at this school for 6 years.

I like AVHS because I learnt to ride a bike, learnt to cook, learnt to compose music and to use a Myki card. Now that I am old enough I am learning to do work experience.

I have made lots of friends and we do lots of fun things together.

I wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with the wonderful students at Ascot Vale Heights School. I learnt so much in such a short amount of time about each student’s individual needs, how to effectively cater to these needs and importantly how to make the learning experience enjoyable. Ascot Vale Heights School is indeed a special school. I have never been in such a warm and welcoming environment where the students have such a great relationship with the teachers and look forward to coming to school every day. Becoming a part of this school community confirmed for me that this is the field I am passionate about and I am now moving towards becoming a Special Education Teacher.

After taking a tour of Ascot Vale Heights School I was impressed from the get go. I remember on the drive home, thinking that this would be the perfect school for our son to attend. The thing that struck me the most was seeing how happy the children were whilst at school.  The staff were lovely and it was evident that they were there because they wanted to be. It takes a special kind of person to work with special children and it makes a difference to me that I know that Leo is in good hands when I leave him for the day.

The Seesaw program is fantastic. It allows me to see what my son is doing during the day and all the progress that comes with it.

The Garden program is amazing. Leo has had a ball in the garden and the chickens are his new friends.

I couldn’t be happier that Leo attends Ascot Vale Heights School. It really is a special kind of school!

When we were initially looking at schools we were impressed by the beautiful garden and kitchen program, library facility and friendliness of the staff at Ascot Vale Heights School and its students’ achievements.

It was wonderful to have our daughter’s teaching staff visit her in her own home and to have the opportunity to discuss her needs and strengths in depth and then plan her learning goals together.

Having had our first month at Ascot Vale Heights School we know we made the right decision. 

Hi. My name is Anisa and I would like to share my story with you about this wonderful school.

I have two children who attend this school. If I knew what I know now I would not have hesitated for as long as I did to enrol my children at Ascot Vale Heights School.

The school is full of wonderful teachers and staff who help us in every way they can, from classes that support them in their challenges, to individual learning plans and caring for them when they are sick.

I am so happy that my children are in the right school for them.

So please, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask the staff at the school who are very, very helpful. 

Seeing my daughter’s art work displayed at the Art Show was amazing. If one teacher could get her to produce work like that I knew she was in the right school.
