Carlton Gardens Primary School provides a safe and challenging learning environment, caring teachers, and enjoyment within a multicultural and diverse setting. CGPS caters for both local and international students who are all encouraged to contribute to the global community. Priorities and goals are set after active consultation with everyone involved in the life of the school.
Literacy and Numeracy are the focus of multi-age learning at CGPS. Students also engage in a range of Integrated Studies, including Computer Technology, ensuring the curriculum has breadth and depth.
Our location makes our specialist programs unique. Sport, Science and Performing Arts are linked to Education Programs through the University of Melbourne. LOTE celebrates Chinese language and culture. The Visual Arts are enriched through links with the National Gallery of Victoria, and our proximity to the Melbourne Museum and Carlton Gardens provides an invaluable learning environment for all.
Families have the convenience of an Out of Hours Care and School Holiday Program and are encouraged to play an active role in the school community through a Parents Club.
