Our Vision

We believe that all students can learn and would like to be attending school. Montague School provides a safe and supportive environment for students aged 15 to 19 who have a mild intellectual disability or who have disengaged or not experienced success in mainstream school. Our vision is for all students to be happy and successful learners who are empowered to develop their potential and supported to achieve a successful adult pathway.



The aims of the learning programs are:


  • To equip students with the educational knowledge, skills and abilities required


  • To obtain employment or to participate in further education


  • To provide students with the capacity to live as independent and contributing members of the community.


The school is committed to providing a pathway to post school life via participation in Vocational Employment and Training [VET] and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning [VCAL] programs. These programs are school based or offered in liaison with other providers such as the Inner Melbourne VET Cluster, Kangan and Holmesglen TAFE and local industry.


Each student has a Managed Individual Pathways Plan.


The school is housed in a heritage building which traces its origin to 1889 when it was the Montague State School. The facility and grounds are conducive to an open, relaxed learning atmosphere for students. As Montague is in South Melbourne on the 109 Light Rail line it is accessible to students from all over Melbourne.
