Perth Modern School
Welcome to the Perth Modern School website. Whether you are already a member of our school community, a prospective member or simply interested in finding out a little more about the school, I hope you will see what makes Perth Modern School unique and a leader in secondary education for academically gifted students. 

Perth Modern School is an extraordinary school – rich in tradition and firmly focused on the future. Our tradition of academic excellence spans many years and we are immensely proud of our Alumni, many of whom hold high positions in local, national and international environments. They excel in the fields of engineering, medicine, industry, law, academia, politics and the arts. 

Having accepted our first intake of academically selected students in 2007, after a 50 year departure from selective entry, we are continually striving to build on our reputation of outstanding achievement. Our goal is to provide all students with the opportunity to perform to their personal best and to develop important life skills as good citizens and leaders in our global society. 

Perth Modern School is making great advances in terms of facilities, teaching and learning, curriculum and student care, making it the school of choice for academically gifted students. I encourage prospective parents to book for a personalised tour of the school so that you can get a real sense of the uniqueness of Perth Modern School. 

Our talented teaching staff, who are merit selected, are our greatest resource in the delivery of leading edge learning to gifted students. They are dedicated professionals, committed to bringing out the best in each student. Teaching at Perth Modern School is seen as an opportunity to achieve high levels of professional and personal satisfaction and we provide our teachers with the latest in information and communication technology and targeted professional development opportunities. 

Perth Modern School values the involvement and interest of our school community and we encourage parents to join with us by supporting our many activities and programs. Parents are active participants in their children’s learning, resulting in a true partnership between the school and the family. 

The learning environment at Perth Modern School emphasises the global future that our students will be a part of. Increasingly, they will interact globally to innovate, solve problems, communicate and collaborate with people from different cultures (global literacy). We are committed to the continuous improvement of the school’s network, facilities, equipment and professional practice to deliver leading edge learning to gifted students. 

We welcome your interest in our school.
