Ascot Vale West is a small inner city school that was established more than 90 years ago. Our school is set among spacious grounds and we pride ourselves on our rich diversity and close, inclusive parent community.
We are proudly multicultural, with more than 20 cultures represented at our school.
We place great value on developing students who are outward looking and knowledgeable about the world, able to appreciate and be open to various forms of social and cultural diversity and actively participate as responsible citizens.
Our school values the input of its students and offers opportunities for our students to shape their learning in the classroom, and also offers wide-ranging leadership programs.
Our students enjoy a large variety of specialist programs, including Physical Education, Spanish language, Performing Arts (incorporating music, dance, drama and media), and Visual Arts. From Years 3-6 our students have the option of participating in the MVIMP (Moonee Vale Instrumental Music Program), where they have a large choice of musical instruments to study.
