Learning Experience | Waterfall Schools

Learning Experience

Qualified subject specialist teachers provide individual attention, getting to know their students and working with them to achieve the best results possible in a range of academic subjects. There is a constant conversation between teacher, student and parent/guardian about the direction and level of learning that is taking place. 

All learning materials will be custom created by experienced Waterfall Online teachers who will collaborate with Waterfall Schools campus teachers to provide quality learning and assessment materials.

Teachers will use appropriate online learning programmes, delivered through google classroom.

Being an online student should, ultimately, mean that you will be more connected than ever, that you are learning to use technology in a responsible and creative way to enter the workplace with the experience and skills that will allow you to make a success of whatever career you choose to follow.
