Centre of Excellence & Excellence Programs

Pacific Pines SHS is committed to an educational program that encourages, challenges, extends and supports each student’s special interests, skills and talents to become the very best student they can be. Students with these qualities may choose to participate in one of our Centre of Excellence Programs to challenge and support them in secondary education and beyond.
Each Centre of Excellence Program has been developed by an expert teaching team for students who are ready to learn and achieve their dreams and ambitions at a higher level.
