Maroon State School has the capacity to transform the lives of students, to inspire and nurture their development as learners, individuals and contributing citizens. We provide personalised learning opportunities through explicit teaching, encouragement, advice and support for each student, shaping our teaching around the ways different students learn and nurturing the unique talents/abilities of every student.
Here at Maroon State School, the Principal plays a critical role in supporting and fostering quality teaching through coaching and mentoring teachers to find the best ways to facilitate learning and by promoting a culture of high expectations in our school.
Our vision here at Maroon State School is to have a personalised learning program for every student where they work from their differentiated contracts to achieve targets/goals set utilising 21st century technology. Maroon State School is committed to providing high quality education to achieve the best possible educational outcomes for every student from prep to year six, within a safe, tolerant and disciplined learning environment.
Maroon State School offers our students a curriculum which engages, enables and empowers them to think, create, communicate, participate, reflect and understand the world in which they live. We endeavour to provide every student with the experiences to learn in an environment that is challenging, structured and supportive. We encourage students to achieve their best possible learning outcomes, to become independent and lifelong learners, to be responsible for their own behaviour, active citizens, and to work collaboratively with others to achieve their goals.
