Fully co-educational, buy the School has a proud history of wonderful pastoral care and academic achievement with consistent success of its graduates in the public examination arena and the School consistently ranks as the best performing co-educational school in Western Australia.
The size of our High School means that we are small enough for our students to be well-known and to receive excellent attention as individuals, yet large enough to offer an impressive range of subjects and activities.
The secondary curriculum follows the guidelines provided by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority of Western Australia, following the eight Learning Areas of the Curriculum Framework: The Arts, English, Health & Physical Education, Languages Other Than English, Mathematics, Science, Society & Environment and Technology & Enterprise. Curriculum in Western Australia is currently undergoing a transition from the abovementioned Curriculum Framework to the new Australian Curriculum. Carmel School has a staged induction of this curriculum with it currently being taught in Years 7 – 10 in Mathematics, Science, English and History (as a part of the Society and Environment program)
Students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 study secular core subjects, a range of Jewish Studies modules and electives of their choice. The Secondary School aims to give all students the opportunity to qualify for tertiary studies, either University or TAFE, with a range of stage 2 and 3 WACE (Western Australian Certificate of Education) courses offered in Years 11 and 12. The range of subjects offered is reviewed each year and is responsive to the needs, requirements and choices of our students.

We are strongly committed to caring for the social, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being of all our students and take pride when our students graduate as balanced, thoughtful, self-aware and self-assured young people confident of a bright future.
