In developing Individual Learning Plans, consideration is given to each student’s needs, strengths and interests. The curriculum is based on the Victorian Curriculum.  The Victorian Curriculum F-10 incorporates the Australian Curriculum and reflects Victorian priorities and standards.  The curriculum is the common set of knowledge and skills required by students for life-long learning, social development and active and informed citizenship.

Students in their last three years of school concentrate on a transitional program for post- school life. This may include vocational programs and/or the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning.

Mildura Specialist School integrates students part-time into mainstream schools, if this is in the best interests of the student and it is the parents/carers chosen option.

The school is committed to providing a progressive, stimulating and safe school environment which takes into account sound management practices, communication between all members of the community, delivery of appropriate curriculum, parental involvement and community awareness.
