About us

Who Are We?

Riverside Grammar School is an independent, co-educational high school for students seeking a personalised learning experience. With the aim of providing a more entrepreneurial and individualised program for students, than most mainstream education providers offer, the school was founded by award winning educator and teacher Jon Carnegie (D. Ed., B. Ed., Dip. Youth Work).

Maintaining a small cohort of students at Riverside, enables staff to work individually with each student and their families to establish their specific educational goals and explore the student’s interests. By approaching education from the perspective of the individual and addressing the individual’s needs and interests, it encourages the student to explore their curiosities and discover their own unique talents. Empowering our students to study what they’re passionate about, alongside or as part of, their assessed or non-assessed Victorian Certificate of Education studies.

At Riverside, we’re passionate about providing young people, who have struggled to fit within the mainstream education system, with a supportive environment to complete their high school education.
