Melbourne high school ditches year levels

Templestowe College has no traditional grades, instead allowing students of differing ages to learn at the level which suits the individual student.

Speaking to Ross and John about a story in today’s Herald Sun, where the school has delivered students alpacas, drones and other items simply because they asked for them, co-principal Peter Hutton said the system is successful.

“We don’t actually have year levels, we have students from 12-years-old to 20 and they work at whatever year level is most appropriate to them,” Mr Hutton said.

“I’ve got four year 7 level students doing VCE.

“We’ve had a 15-year-old go to university.”

“This is revolutionary!” Burnso said.
