Building Bright Futures

At Dubbo College, we provide a learning environment fostering the growth of each student to achieve their personal best.

High expectations

At Dubbo College, we provide a learning environment fostering the growth of each student to achieve their personal best.

By nurturing their aspirations in a caring community, we inspire students to achieve academic excellence and become people of integrity and character. Our academic extension classes cater for gifted and talented students, with students in Years 7 and 8 currently having access to specialised teaching through the AVID program. This program will expand to Year 9 in 2018 and Year 10 in 2019.

Our uniquely broad and flexible curriculum, one of the most comprehensive in NSW schools, is designed to motivate students and build a life-long love of learning.  Senior science students have the opportunities to apply to attend forums at major universities such as the University of Sydney's National Science School.  In recent years some of our students also participated in programs in the United States, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as well as the University of Singapore.

In 2016 five of our engineering students constructed the Best Engineered Four-Wheel Drive miniature vehicle in the world and came second in the World 4x4 in Schools championships staged in Britain.

Cross-curricular experiences and dynamic extension activities, including the annual Science and Engineering Challenge and regional debating, stimulate positive outcomes for students.
