First impressions are lasting impressions and Swan View Senior High School has a warm and friendly 'feel'. Our school is a vibrant and caring learning environment where everyone works together to ensure positive outcomes for all students. Our aim of excellence in Teaching and Learning is underpinned by a strong curriculum and pastoral care focus. Staff and students enjoy being at Swan View Senior High School.
Swan View Senior High School predominantly draws students from the Swan Valley areas of Middle Swan, Bellevue, Koongamia, Midvale and Swan View and also attracts a number of students from the hills suburbs of Greenmount, Darlington, Glen Forrest and Helena Valley. This provides the school with a diverse and capable student population which is renowned for a powerful sense of 'community'.
Our school enjoys strong links with parents and the wider community. We have developed firm links with Swan TAFE through our highly successful VET programs. We have sound business contacts through our involvement with the No Dole program, School and Industry placements, the Midland Redevelopment Authority and the Midland Chamber of Commerce. Swan View has a dynamic relationship with parents that fosters involvement in planning and policy making through the School Council. We have a working relationship with our feeder primary schools to ensure a smooth social and educational transition for students. We also work in partnership with public high schools to ensure we meet the needs of all students. In 2006 the school has also formalised an arrangement with a 'sister' school in Japan. Hyogo Prefectural Kiabara Senior High School exchanges students with Swan View Senior High School each year.
Swan View Senior High School has established a Middle School Model in Years 8 - 9. The Middle School is structured to create a smooth transition from the Primary context, providing students with fewer teachers and stable class groupings. The Middle School also provides a secure, nurturing and caring environment. Learning Teams and classroom practices create a stimulating and challenging atmosphere that is conducive to maximising student potential. Year 10 is seen as a transition to Senior School (Years 11 - 12) where a more adult ethos is developed.
