High School

MESC high school caters for students from Year 7 to Year 12, with some students accessing an additional year if deemed appropriate. The educational journey that all students encounter is delivered through an Individual Education Plan (IEP) with a person centred approach. Community based learning is solidified as well as many authentic learning opportunities (please see these breakdowns in the other tabs).

Classroom teachers access the Australian and WA Curriculum, while using ABLESWA as a tool to guide their planning. ASDAN is worked towards in areas of interest within their everyday teaching and learning practices to ensure teachers provide the best education for each student in their class.

Students are encouraged to develop their independence in all areas of school and life after MESC.  We are focussed on developing the skills required for a smooth transition to after school life.


One of the exciting aspects of being in high school is the ability to engage in a wide range of subjects. The high school environment and structure provides opportunities to expand the subjects our students can do. These subjects are taught by specialist teachers in specialised environments with peers from our co-located school, Manjimup Senior High School.

Option Classes include Art, Physical Education, Music, Drama, Metal Work, Photography, Cooking, Woodwork and Farming. *Options are reviewed each year and are subject to availability at Manjimup Senior High School.

Other Learning


A variety of short-duration and one-off activities complement the learning framework at Manjimup ESC. This includes services of Fishability via their Busselton Jetty School Program, tailored specifically for Education Support Centres to enable students to experience recreational fishing in a safe environment. The school also participates in Bunbury’s Rotary Sail into Life program which aims to provide everyone with the opportunity to experience the joy and freedom of sailing, regardless of their abilities. Students at MESC have partnered with Imperials Football club and Manjimup’s Lions Club to organise cans and bottle as part of the Containers for Change initiative.

Students in Year 1-7 attend swimming lessons at the Manjimup’s Aquatic Centre every year.
