Welcome to Warragul and District Specialist School
We believe that all students can and will learn, and grow in self-esteem, through fostering a climate of care, dignity and respect, using consistent behavior management strategies, deliberate positive reinforcement, and recognition of achievement.
We promote a curriculum that develops skills that its graduates will utilise as adults. We believe that graduates should be actively involved in work/further education, participate in managing their own homes, and are active participants in their own local community.
