Glenunga International High School is recognised nationally and internationally as a leader in the provision of education for gifted students. The Ignite Program has been highly commended by the European Council of International Schools accreditation process. It has also been named as one of Australia's best educational programs by The Australian newspaper (2002) in its analysis of Australia's Best School.
The Ignite Class This class studies a compacted curriculum, which condenses three years, (8, 9,10) into two years. In their second year students can choose from the year 10 subjects list. Students enter senior study earlier and are extended vertically and laterally, as they require it. This is a selected entry program based on performance in an ACER assessment and a panel interview.
Please Note: This assessment usually occurs at the beginning of the year prior to entry into the program. Nomination forms are available from local primary schools, from Glenunga International High School.
The Ignite Companion Class This class studies a 3 year program, which utilises much of the curriculum devised for the IGNITE class. It is intended that students in this class are extended as it is required. Many will enter year 11 studies in their third year.
Entry into this class is based upon one or more of the following:
- Performance in the Ignite assessment
- Performance in an IQ test
- Recommendation from a primary school demonstrating evidence of the student's potential
- An interview may be required
Students in the Ignite class and in the companion class integrate for Languages Other Than English, Health and Physical Education, Design and Technology, The Arts as well as many enrichment activities.
Please Note: Students apply for entry into Glenunga through DECS Out of Zone procedures. Please see primary schools for forms, or contact Glenunga International High School. Frequently Asked Questions about the Ignite program
