The School

Kangaroo Valley School has a long and proud history. It has an important part to play in the lives of the 100 families whose children attend school. Many changes have occurred, especially in recent years to both the physical nature of the school and its clientele. Our stated purpose is to prepare our children for high school, and entry into society, by providing them with the best possible education.
