Middlemount Community School provides a quality, seamless education from Prep to Year 12. Our vision statement, “working with high expectations and pride, towards continuous improvement in teaching practices and student outcomes”, underpins all that we do at MCS.

Our academic programs deliver the P-12 Australian Curriculum and QCAA Authority and Authority registered subjects and a small number of vocational certificates in the senior school. Students in years 10-12 are able to access a wider range of subjects through distance education, which is well supported at our school. Senior students are also able to access school based apprenticeships and traineeships. We monitor student progress closely and provide appropriate intervention and support to ensure our students receive the best possible outcomes. Our school offers strong learning support programs for groups and individual students.
